    Description

    My farm is located at 20 kms of Esquel city and at 5 kms of Trevelin in the province of Chubut, Patagonia Argentina, parallel to the Andes. There is a house where I live, and two small houses vacant and habitable, plus ample space for camping. There is electricity and well water (potable) mobile phone signal and soon, internet. I use bottled gas and wood heating. I am dedicated to raising animals: pigs, rabbits, chickens of different breeds, including the "redfish of Guinea". I am proud to say that I transformed this barren land I bought twenty years ago in a grove of fruit trees, nut trees and pines, and reforested every year with about a hundred new trees. It is my hope to receive people who want to share experiences, who like animals and nature, and excited about agriculture. I can accommodate up to two people. You will learn to interact in a rural area and in harmony with nature.
    Accommodation: Two houses, with one room each, a bed, kitchen with wood burning stove, bathroom with shower. I can receive one Volunteer at the time, preferably male, because I need someone strong for the farm work.
    Food: We can prepare the food for the volunteer. The diet is omnivorous.
    We are: a couple with no children, one dog and a cat.

    Mi chacra está localizada en la la provincia de Chubut, a 5 km. de Trevelin y a 20 km. de Esquel, cerca de la Cordillera de los Andes, en la Patagonia Argentina. Cuento con 10 hectáreas de campo, dos casas, una de las cuales está disponible para recibir visitas, y un gran espacio para acampar. Poseo señal de teléfono, internet, agua potable y electricidad. Uso gas envasado y calefacción a leña. Me dedico a criar conejos, cerdos, gallinas, ovejas y próximamente vacas. Estoy feliz de haber transformado la tierra desértica y estéril que compré hace 20 años, en un paraíso de árboles frutales, pinos, pasto y vida silvestre. Deseo recibir personas que quieran compartir sus experiencias, que gusten de los animales y la naturaleza, y se entusiasmen con la vida y trabajo de campo. Puedo recibir solamente una persona a la vez, y preferentemente de sexo masculino, ya que los trabajos requieren alguna fuerza física (alimentar a los cerdos con baldes de comida de 15 kgs., trabajo con motosierra, limpieza del bosque, etc.).
    Somos una pareja sin hijos, con un perrito y un gatito.
