    Description

    Hello, my name is Martín, I am a commercial engineer, born in Coyhaique, Chilean Patagonia. I currently live in the Ensenada Valle Simpson sector, 18 km from the city and 6 km from Route 7 (main road). During the week I work in Coyhaique (Municipality) and on weekends I dedicate myself to agricultural work. In the family field you will find beautiful landscapes, a unique tranquility and a youthful atmosphere. We are dedicated to raising sheep and growing some fruit trees. I am looking to learn English and help me with field work in exchange for accommodation, food, a good environment and learning.

    Hola viajeros!!, mi nombre es Martín Sepúlveda, soy ingeniero comercial, nacido en Coyhaique, Patagonia Chilena. Actualmente vivo en el sector de Ensenada Valle Simpson, a 18 kms al sur de la ciudad principal (Coyhaique) y 6 kms de la ruta 7 (carretera). Durante la semana trabajo en Coyhaique ( En la oficina de turismo de la Municipalidad) y los fines de semana me dedico a las labores agrícolas. En el campo familiar se podrán encontrar con paisajes hermosos, una tranquilidad única y un ambiente juvenil. Nos dedicamos a la crianza de ovejas y cultivos de algunos frutales.
    Durante los meses de enero a mayo nos dedicamos a principalmente a cosechar pasto, cortar leña, hacer postes para cercos y cosechar diferentes frutales a menor escala (principalmente para consumo y otro poco para la venta). en los meses de invierno (junio-octubre) nos enfocamos en la crianza de las ovejas, alimentándolas con fardos de pastos. Para este año, el nacimiento de los corderos está previsto para la primera a tercera semana de septiembre, donde aprenderán a asistir el parto de las ovejas. Es una experiencia única y muy linda ( podrán ver los primeros días de vida de los corderos, desde que nace, empieza a tomar calostro y da sus primeros pasos)
    Busco aprender inglés y que me ayuden en labores de campo, esto a cambio de alojamiento, alimentación, buen ambiente juvenil, aprendizaje y una experiencia inolvidable
