  • Description


    Hello there we are Ayrton.
    We run a organic family farm located in Silva Jardim countryside of Rio de Janeiro.

    We have few projects going on:
    - the first and oldest one is the Aprendiz de Fazendeiro (Farmer apprentice), which bring kids from the cities to see what is a farm, how it works and what they do;

    - we also have Walking organization that takes people to do beautiful hikings in the country of Rio (and of course you are welcome to jump in if you like);

    - few years ago we started to grow orchids and plant trees to reforest our amazing Atlantic Forest;

    - last but not least the B&B which is the one we need more help at the moment. We are looking for volunteers to help us with our guests and general maintenance;

    Your tasks would be varied depending on the day but will be mainly outside with a nice weather from Rio.

    Please have in mind that 15 days is the very minimum amount of time, we really prefer people to stay with us for longer periods of time so we have time for teach you every thing you need to know and to experience our farm and surroundings to it full extent.

  • Help


    Your main duties would be taking care of our guests, checking if they have everything what they need, show the farm around and engage in activities with them.

    When we don't have guests there are other projects happening that you can get involved. The biggest ones are the riparian forest plantation and the orchid growing facility. We also have some animals that eventually we might ask for help with feeding.

    However, if you have any particular skill, that you are proud of and believe it can be useful for us we will be happy to hear about it.
