Our farm is nestled in the mountains of Santander, Colombia, bordered by two rivers and a one hour ride away from San Gil. With 35 acres of virgin land, a gentle weather, and a host of nature activities, it is the ideal getaway for workawayers looking to explore the wild side of Colombia !

We dream our farm to be a place of experiment, of creativity and cross-cultural, where people can learn by puting their knowledge together : skills, languages, etc. ( we can teach Spanish, French and Russian). We are city-people who decided to go live in the countryside, so everyday is a learning experience for us! Hope it can be one for you too!
Last year we finished the construction of a wooden cabin with the help of so many benovolant hands. For now, we are looking for people to help us build furniture, help on wood, do some gardening and clean the area to adapt for our cows and fishes. In general, we are looking for creative people, who would like to add their mark to our farm. Sharing, discussing, proposing ideas and helping us realize them. Whatever quality you might have, might be interesting to us ! 😊
For now, we have a beautiful piece of land, largely untouched, where tents can be set up for those who want to sleep at the sound of the river. We also propose accomodation inside a traditional-style main house, built in the 1950’s, where workawayers can sleep in tents or in a hamac.
As to the food, the idea is to cook all meals together whenever possible.
We typically eat 3 meals a day. Breakfast, lunch and dinner which is the main meal.
We are omnivores but mainly eat vegetarian dishes.
We bake our own bread in a wood fired oven and sometimes we do pizzas in it.
Please let us know about special dietry requirements!
