    We love sharing and learning from our volunteers. We spend a lot of time together in the kitchen, so bring your recipes! We cook from whole ingredients (and are very accommodating with dietary restrictions), and eating and drinking well is very important to us. Cecilia can teach you many traditional Chilean recipes, as well as many others from her giant collection of recipe books collected over the years.

    We can help you learn Spanish, and during your days off we can suggest and indicate the good and interesting places to visit i.e. towns, cities, and beaches that surround us. It is safe and easy to hitch hike back and forth from our place to town and beaches .It is the cold Pacific Ocean don’t imagine the tropics , it is quite beautiful though.

    We are a real productive farm, and will require help caring for the ducks, chickens, and quails. This includes cleaning penns and equipment .Other than caring for the birds, our volunteers work in the garden, take care of the dogs, help to maintain the property, also help with construction and other tasks if their skills are aligned.

    We look for independent reliable volunteers who we can trust to work on tasks we agree upon on their own if we are away from the house. We often make trips to Santiago (1.5 hr away) and Valparaiso (45 min away) and depend on our volunteers to be responsible and capable.

    We have an expert employee, Roxana, that works 5.5 days a week that will be there to guide you along the way. It is a real productive natural farm so all the life cycle goes on . Be prepared to experience real farm life ,the concept from farm to table.
    The business part is also important , we selll all our produce to the best restaurants and hotels in Santiago and in our region .

  • Acomodação

    Acomodação

    At the farm we have a separate cabaña for our volunteers, with 2 twin beds and 1 double. It has a complete kitchen, bathroom, and fireplace for staying warm in the cool nights and is very comfortable. We often cook together for lunch and dinner in our house up the hill, but you´ll be on your own for breakfast. We have plenty of eggs, oats and tea and coffee for you to enjoy, though. Life here according meals is flexible so some of the time you will be on your own doing the cooking and being neat and caring of your cottage and ours . We have laundry facilities available.

    We have a family orchard filled with citrus, peaches, apples and few avocado trees, as well as berrines and produce growing our vegetable garden wich is next to your cottage and will be responsible of weeding and watering . Some evenings we´ll collect a few limes to squeeze to add to whatever cocktail we´re drinking that night.

    Getting to the farm is quite easy. We can pick you up from the bus stop in Casablanca, easily accesible from Valparaiso/Viña del Mar or Santiago, and provide transportation there and back on your days off. On those days you can visit two of Chilean Nobel laureate Pablo Neruda´s houses in Valparaiso or on the coast in Isla Negra, or see our beautiful secluded beaches 15 minutes away from the farm.

    We have had dozens of positive experiences on a similar work exchange (HelpX) and are looking for interesting, inquisitive people from all over the world. We look forward to hearing from you. At present due to the pandemic we look for volunteers who are able to spend 3 months with us, so they can really get settled in.
