  • Description

    Description

    A farm with an old Catalan farmhouse of stone and olive trees, located between a pine forest. The main building is the reconstructed farmhouse, from the 14th century, which is still being built with the help of volunteers. On the farm there are several construction projects with recycled materials. The projects include the reconstruction of the farmhouse, construction of dry stone walls of the old style, and many more. Here there are always ideas of new projects and we welcome creative volunteers and workers. We want to meet you!
    We have 6 dogs, 4 large ones. They are very affectionate but if you do not like dogs maybe it is not the best farm for you. (One note: unfortunately we can not accept volunteers with dogs) We also have a sow, Pepa, and a naughty ass, Julia, who pass through the free farm and at their own pace.

    Es una finca con una antigua masía catalan de piedra y olivos, situado entre un bosque de pinos.

Aquí siempre hay ideas de proyectos nuevos y damos la bienvenida a voluntarios creativos y trabajadores. Queremos conocerte!
    Tenemos 6 perros, 4 grandes. Son muy cariñosos pero si no te gustan los perros quizás no es la mejor finca para ti. (Una nota: desafortunadamente no podemos aceptar voluntarios con perros) También tenemos una cerda, Pepa, y una burra traviesa, Julia, que pasan por la finca libre y a su ritmo.

    The farm has 180 olive trees that need maintenance and in the fall we collect the olives. We also have carob trees from which we collect the fruits from August. A part of this in the farm we work in the reconstruction of the farmhouse, construction of old style dry stone walls and many others. Plans for the future include chickens, a garden and a venue for events such as yoga, music, etc.
