  • Description

    Description

    Hello, we are a Dutch-US couple who live and work in the southern part of the province of Mendoza, near the town of San Rafael. We live in a rural area surrounded by vineyards and orchards. We run a small vineyard-orchard and we grow apricots, peaches, plums, grapes, and quince. We sell our crops locally and we make preserves and can our fruits. We keep bees for the production and sale of honey which is harvested several times a season.
    Our newest project is the building of a passive solar house, a project we have started at the end of 2017.
    NOTE: due to Covid and the still present lock down, we can not takie applications untill further notice.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    You will get an idea of old fashioned farm life and caring for orchards and vineyards. Depending on the time of year you may participate in harvesting, learn how to can fruits, make yoghurt, bake bread, work with farming tools, burn weeds in controlled fires, beekeeping and/collect honey. Then there is music, yoga and cooking to participate in.
    For the construction of the passive solar house we will use alternative building techniques with materials readily available naturally in our area.

    We are looking for help on the farm, in the yard and in and around the house. Even though we hire local workers, we can always use extra hands! With the summer here we have the gardens, orchards and vineyards to care for. Mostly that consists of weeding, mowing, moving branches and back-up help with any harvests.
    We have started the construction of our passive solar house. At this point we need help with plastering the walls, a job that is easy to learn.
    We have other work to do, keeping the household running, cooking for several people etc, and maintenance of house, barn and gardens. There are a variety of chores to do!

    Hébergement

    We live in a traditional farmhouse to which we have added modern amenities. An apartment attached to the house serves as a guesthouse and it will be used as lodging for workaways. It has its own private bathroom and entrance. A smaller room is available if we host more then 2 workawayers, which we sometimes do. In case we have more than 2 workers, the bathroom is shared. We work and live as a family which means we cook and eat together, clean-up together and spent time together.
