  • Description


    We are a family farm producing numerous crops, we have dairy cows , chickens and sometimes other animals. We sell our veggies, baked goods, and fresh dairy at a local farmers market. And yes here in the tropics it is year round production -meaning we sell 52 weeks of the year. Recently we acquired a small greenhouse 144sqmts/1550sqft in which we grow the more delicate crops. Also we manage about 2000sqmts/20,000sqft. of field crops mostly sweet potato, peanuts, kale, okra and others. We also grow fruits and tubers native to this area.

    Somos una familia de productores organicos. Hace 16 años decidimos hacer un cambio de vida y comprometernos a una vida sostenible y natural ....

    We are looking for volunteers that have a true sincere interest in agriculture , not travelers looking for a budget stay ...

    As for experience required.... your desire to learn , work and earn your stay is more important than previous experience!

    What we look for in volutarios is the following - People who really want to live the life of a farmer, depend on the land and its endless solutions to feed oneself and even the nearby community. Be able to get up early with a smile and know that where there is a will there is a way !!!!
      Some tasks to be carried out daily are: Prepare areas for crops, start the seedlings, assist in the production of compost (about a ton per month), weeding, production of bio-organic fertilizers and the application of them, keep pastures clean and others. Almost all inputs are produced from resources of the same farm.
    The work tends to be physically demanding.The nature of farmwork is hard physical labor, so know now what you are getting involved in !!!
    We also look for volunteers who are able to cook and are willing to work in a busy, productive kitchen. One thing to consider is that part of our sustainability as farmers is raising, slaughtering, elaborating and cooking our own animals. If that is not something you would be willing or comfortable to assist with, then this is probably not the place for you.
    Lo que buscamos en volutarios es lo siguiente - Gente que de verdad lo que quieren es vivir la vida de un agricultor, depender de la tierra y su sin fin de solucciones para alimentarse uno mismo y hasta la comunidad cercana. Poder madrugarse con una sonrisa y saber que querer es poder!!!!
    Algunas tareas de llevarse al cabo diario son: Preparar areas para cultivos , iniciar los almacigos , asistir en la produccion de compost(se maneja alrededor de media tonelada por mes) , desyerbadas , produccion de fertilizantes bio-organicos y la aplicacion de los mismos , mantener potreros limpios y otras. Casi todos los insumos se produce de recursos de la misma finca.
    El trabajo tiende ser bastante exegido physicamente.
