    Description

    We are a family from Veracruz living on a farm, currently run by 2 adults, always under constant construction, on the ranch we have backyard chickens, about 30 sheep, 1 dog, 1 cat, 1 minipig, 2 horses, and a field. of paintball without service to the public. we are 25 km from the city of Tuxpan north of Veracruz. My children, relatives and acquaintances visit us frequently, either to work on a farm project, a party or simply to eat and have a very pleasant time. The ranch is under constant construction and there is always something to do, so we need help to take care of this farm: move things, take care of the sheep that are the basis of our farm, plant plants or trees, prune orange fruit trees, take care of and finish building a labyrinth, Permaculture, hydroponics, etc. All Ideas and projects are welcome.

    We currently prefer last-minute volunteers, who are ready to arrive, since it happens to us a lot that dates are set aside for 2 or 3 months and when the time comes, most cancel and we are left without volunteers because we already have the dates set aside. We will continue to set aside dates for months in the future but in smaller numbers and give preference to last minute volunteers.

    We respond quickly to messages so don't be surprised if you receive a response from us within minutes.



    Somos una familia veracruzana viviendo en una granja, actualmente la administramos 2 personas adultas, siempre en constante construcción, en el rancho contamos con gallinas de patio, cerca de 30 borregos, 3 perros, 1 gato, 1 minipig, 2 caballos, y un campo de paintball con servicio al público. nos encontramos a 25 km de la ciudad de Tuxpan al norte de Veracruz.

    Mis hijos, familiares y conocidos, nos visitan frecuentemente ya sea, para trabajar en algún proyecto de la granja, una fiesta o simplemente para comer y pasar un rato muy agradable.

    El rancho se encuentra en constante construcción y siempre hay algo que hacer, por eso necesitamos ayuda para cuidar de esta granja: mover cosas, cuidar los borregos que son la base de nuestra granja, sembrar plantas o arboles, podar arboles de fruta de naranja, cuidar y terminar de constriur un laberinto, Permacultura, hidroponia, etc. Todas las Ideas y proyectos son bienvenidos.

    Preferimos actualmente a voluntarios de último momento, que ya estén listos para llegar, ya que nos pasa mucho que apartan fechas para 2 o 3 meses y cuando llega el tiempo la mayoria cancela y nos quedamos sin voluntarios por ya tener las fechas apartadas. Seguiremos apartando fechas para meses a futuro pero ya en menor cantidad y darles preferencia a los voluntarios de último momento.

    Contestamos rápido los mensajes asi que no te sorprendas si en minutos recibes respuesta de nosotros.
