    Description

    We have a rural space with a view to an Agrotourism, we are working on a very broad project that ranges from agriculture, lodging, gastronomy, animal care and even an environmental project. We are located on the coast of the Paraná river, in Fighiera, 35 km from Rosario. A property of more than 50 hectares, more than 100 animals ranging from sheep, cows, pigs, chickens, ducks, rabbits, horses, etc. We have 4 properties in a state of remodeling, and so much work to do. Here we live with Viki, my life partner, we learned to cultivate this passion in Italy and we want to offer it here, in our country.

    We are accompanied by Cristian who is a rural worker who helps us with maintenance, but more than one hand is always needed. We harvest alfalfa, but the service is outsourced, the animals take care of us, taking them out to graze is very important.

    Estamos ubicados en la costa del río Paraná, en Fighiera a 35 km de Rosario. Un predio de mas de 50 hectáreas, mas de 100 animales que van desde ovejas, vacas, chanchos, gallinas, patos, conejos, caballos, etc. Disponemos de 4 propiedades en estado de remodelación, y tanto trabajo por hacer.

    Nos acompaña Cristian que es un trabajador rural que nos ayuda con el mantenimiento, pero siempre se necesita mas de una mano.
    Cosechamos alfalfa, pero el servicio es tercerizado, los animales nos ocupamos nosotros, sacarlos a pastear es muy importante.

    Help

    Life in the country requires daily tasks that are very time consuming such as: park maintenance, gardening, cutting firewood, animal care, house cleaning, etc. We also need help in positioning our product on the web, some design, as well as painting a mural, photography or electrical or plumbing work. "In the field there is always something to do, every day" is what they say, and it is true. We need help to be able to focus and move forward with our project and not waste time with maintenance, but move forward. This is why we need help. The idea is to share and this wonderful space, enjoy it and work outdoors, here every day you learn something new. Being able to organize work and help each other half a day is important to us.

    mantenimiento del parque,
    jardinería,
    cortar leña,
    cuidado de animales,
    limpieza de las casas, etc.
    También necesitamos ayuda en posicionar nuestro producto en la web, algo de diseño, como así también pintar un mural, fotografía o trabajos eléctricos o de plomería.
    "En el campo siempre hay algo para hacer, todos los dias" es lo que dicen, y es cierto. Necesitamos ayuda para poder focalizarnos y avanzar en nuestro proyecto y no perder el tiempo con el mantenimiento, sino avanzar. Por eso es que necesitamos de ayuda.
    La idea es compartir y este maravilloso espacio, disfrutarlo y trabajar al aire libre, acá todos los dias se aprende algo nuevo. Poder organizar el trabajo y ayudarnos medio dia, es importante para nosotros.
