We have got around thirty hectares of lands of which we are working five of them with coffee, cacao and other fruits like oranges and bananas.

We also try to improve the family’s quality life. The team is my family (parents, brothers and cousins) and we all work together to achieve this project. We all like the spirit of volunteering and the strength of people who really want to discover how is the coffee process is while they protect the enviroment.

Trabajar y vivir en esta Finca me gustó mucho. La familia es muy amable y el lugar es muy bonito, completamente en la naturaleza. El trabajo también estaba bien.

Fue una experiencia muy linda, en la Finca si planta un montón de cosas, bananas, mangos, maracuya, tomates, café, caña de azúcar, piña y etc.. es desde ahí que viene su renta, su felicidad de trabajar con lo que aman. Victor y Elci son unos capos, son personas luchadoras, inteligentísimas, que te explica cada detalle del proceso de cada cosa que si cosecha ahí, mil gracias por la enseñanza y por todo el amor que me dieron en esos días que estuve ahí, agradezco a la vida por poner persona como ustedes en mi camino, aprendí mucho a cada día y valoro eso ♥️

La experiencia con la familia Gálvez ha sido genial en todos los aspectos! Tienen una energía muy linda que te transmiten enseguida y te hacen sentir como en casa!
Las tareas son llevaderas aunque en cualquier momento si te cansas en exceso no hay problema con descansar, además el lugar es muy natural y bastante apartado de todo✨🫶🏽
Recomiendo mucho ir a visitar a la familia y pasar un tiempo con ellos, yo me llevo muy buena experiencia de vida 💘🌀

This was my first place to volunteer in Perú. I recommend it for the warm attitude and understanding of Victor and his family, and the variety of activities. The communication was just in Spanish and helped me in my continuous process of practicing and improving it. This place made me accomplish the dream of working with organic coffee - going through all the steps of processing it. There were various activities almost all days, like it is usually in a family farm - processing cane, constructions, cooking, etc. I was happy with the family sharing the village fiesta, walks, and motorbike class!

La experiencia fue muy buena. Es innegable la humildad, amabilidad y atención por parte de la familia. Ellos son muy generosos y atentos. No obstante, las instalaciones no eran buenas.. les aconsejo a los próximos voluntarios llevar tal vez bolsa de dormir ya que las camas son rígidas y que estén atentos a todo tipo de insectos. En mi caso, el repelente sólo me ayudó a controlar los mosquitos pero no fue así con las pulgas y chapajes (insectos de cosecha). Les aconsejo bañarse con abundante agua y jabón para quitarse los chapajes que se prenden a la piel y sus picaduras generan mucha picazón.
