  • Description

    Description

    This is a wonderful 60 hectares (148 acres) farm surrounded by beautiful views, a lot of nature and really good heart people. The farm has been in our family for almost 30 years. Now we are trying to put it better because in the near future we want to have a glamping place there.

    The farm is an hour away from Melgar, a town 2 hours away from Bogotá. You can arrive easily by bus to Melgar. Then you will have to get a bus at specific hours that is going to leave you at the entrance. Then it will take you a 15 minutes walk to the house. The weather is really nice: warm during the day, but not so cold at nights. The farm is 1.600 mts.

    We are receiving workawayers of any kind who love farm working and nature. Even though we have specific activities we want workawayers do, we are more than welcome receiving people with new, different and even crazy ideas.

    You can plant trees, take care of the gardens, manage cows, supervise chickens, learn how to make fences or even try to build a new shelter. We are also trying to repair some parts of the house. We are not experts, but try to do our best.

    We live in Bogotá and visit the farm on weekends. But we have a lovely family of farmers who are in charge of the farm. They are going to host you, coordinate your activities and help you to have a pleasant stay. For sure, we will be in touch everyday in order to help you as much as we can.

  • Hébergement

    Hébergement

    The accommodation is modest, but clean and comfortable.

    We have a big room for workawayers with a double bed and a bunk bed. We will provide you clean sheets, blankets and pillow.

    The bathroom is shared.

    You will get a hot coffee in the morning. Also breakfast, lunch and dinner similar to what people eat there. You can cook your own meals if you have any special diet; also we can help you if you need any specific food.

    KEEP AN EYE ON THIS

    We expect volunteers help to prepare all meals and clean dishes. Also, as a volunteer you have to keep your space clean, organized and to clean and organize common spaces. You have to bring your own bathroom products. We don’t have a person to do that and sometime we feel volunteers think this is kind of a hotel.

    We open our farm to everyone who wants to be part of this experience. And those things make part of the experience. Hope you understand. ;)

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ The farm is not close to a town or a city. The closer cities are Melgar and Iconozco (Tolima), around 1 hour away by bus.
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ You can go to Melgar and Icononzo everyday by bus at specific hours.
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ You can go walking around in your freetime, maybe go hiking or meeting local people. It would be really fun if you can give locals some English classes.
