Hi guys, we receive many messages for which we are thankful ! However only a handful of people actually made it to stay with us.. Please only send us a message if you are already traveling in Brazil and if you are sure you can really come.
Minimum stay is 10 days. After 10 days we will see how your energy is and if you actually enjoy working on a farm :) After that the stay will be 2 weeks more each time and possibly unlimited for the right person. Right now we have one room available in our new house. But in a few months volunteers will have their own house with 3 rooms, kitchen and bathroom private.
Our 18 hectare animal cruelty free farm situated 3 hours from Rio de Janeiro. 45 minutes by plane to Vitória and 2 hours by bus. We are located in the beautiful town Santa Teresa. Santa Teresa famous for being a hummingbird paradise. We are looking for independent people that like to work on the farm and have a good time enjoying the wild nature ! We have a lot of projects going on currently we are finishing the pool, planting coffee and native trees, taking care of the vegetable garden and finishing our house. We try to do something different every day, but our main goal is turning our land into a syntropic agriculture / agroforestry arabica coffee farm.
We have 10 hectares of beautiful jungle (Mata Atlantica) and 8 hectares of farmland. We have a river with crystal clear water coming straight out of the national reserve, passing 850 meters through our property, with many natural pools and little waterfalls. Our neighbor is the amazing Augusto Ruschi National reserve with over 4000 hectares of protected forest. We are often visited by many animals like Capuchin monkeys, deer, foxes, armadillos and many other mammals. Augusto Ruschi was a famous Brazilian biologist specializing in hummingbirds. We are located at 750 meters of altitude so the temperature is comfortable summer and winter and we have an ocean view on the top of the mountain.

The difference between us (Myself Kilian and Nina) is that we have had alot of experience as workawayers. We had some fantastic experiences and some terrible ones ! In this light we will treat whoever comes as we would like to be treated.
You can always learn alot depending on your intrests.
Agroforestry techniques, knowledge about plants fruits and trees, how to grow Shiitake mushrooms, how to work with chainsaw and powertools, general woodworking skills. Nina likes to teach Portuguese I am a basic carpenter/builder. Nina's mother is an artist and agronomist.
Also learn to do nothing and enjoy yourself doing nothing !
The skills of whoever wants to help on the land are not very important. We are looking for people that really enjoy working creating the nature ! Just a heads up, working on a farm might seem very romantic but it is in fact very hard work ! Currently we are making a small vegetable garden that will take priority also taking care of our organic coffee is always needed. Hope to meet you guys soon.
Cet hôte propose un échange linguistique
On the farm our main Languages are English and Portuguese. But we also speak Dutch, French, some Spanish and some German.
We currently have one room available in our new house, soon we will have a whole house only for volunteers when we can move into the new one.
We provide 3 vegan/vegetarian meals per day in exchange for 5 hours of work. In the weekends you are completely free and you still receive 3 meals.
About 15 km from us there is a town called Santa Teresa, it's a student town where there are lots of things to see and do. there is a museum of biology, a university, beautiful waterfalls and lots of nice little bars and restaurants. You can also go hiking in the natural reserve. If you like climbing here is a paradise, boulders and rocks everywhere. There are lots of waterfalls around ! The public transport in Santa Teresa is excellent. From Vitoria it is extremely easy to take a plane or bus to Bahia, Rio, Sao Paulo or anywhere you want to visit in Brazil !
