    We are a family of 5 and own a small farm in Moquegua, Perú. Currently, my husband Alberto, my son Carlos and I (Maria) are living on the farm. We cultivate chirimoya, mango, grapes, alfalfa, figs, and more, as well as raise goats and guinea pigs. The farm is approximately 5 acres with a great view of the beautiful Moquegua.

  • Accommodation


    Travelers will have a bed in a room just off the kitchen that we have set up specifically for volunteers. The rest of the family sleeps in separate living quarters. We have a full bathroom with a shower and toilet located just outside our home.

    Volunteers will help prepare and eat breakfast, lunch and dinner daily on the farm.

    NOTE: We eat as a family and if you have special dietary needs you will need to communicate that with us upon arriving and possibly go to the market to buy and prepare your own food at the house. We typically have more than enough veggies in the house to accommodate vegetarian diets, but you will need to take responsibility for your own meals.
