We are a family farm of 300 hectares located in the Sierra Chica, 11 kilometers from Alta Gracia, Provincia of Cordoba, Argentina.
We raise Aberdeen Angus cattle, plus chickens, turkeys and pigs. We have 16 horses of which my daughter is training four. In addition, we have organic gardens for family consumption.
Volunteers will live in a multicultural family fluent in Spanish, English, French and Portuguese.
Three generations of us live here.
We include our volunteers in practically all our social interactions with friends and neighbors and we usually eat our three meals a day with the volunteers who share in the cooking and cleaning up.
We have been using volunteers from other organizations for the last 5 years.
Just recently we have begun using Workaway.
We look for volunteers who have expertise and experience in organic farming, We are not interested in teaching volunteers about gardening, we want to learn from them. Therefore, the ideal candidate (s) is a mature person.
If you are interested in working on our farm, please give us details of your experience working on organic farms or mention other relevant skills such as carpentry, food canning etc.
