We were supposed to stay here 20 days but at the end we end up to stay here for more than 2 months! The experience was awesome, we felt welcome at Katrin’s house from the moment we arrived at Praderas! The days flew, lot of things to learn and to do, it was nice to get in touch with nature and all the animals (goats, dogs,cats..). Katrin is a very patience person who explained us all the things and let us learn more about the granja life! I would recommend this experience to people who loves nature and animals. I will keep this experience in my heart💜

This was Chris’ and my first volunteer experience and it was fantastic! Katrin is so knowledgeably about the organic industry and treats her animals and us like family. We learnt a lot about taking care of animals such as goats, geese and chicken! Also about cheese production. It’s a beautiful peaceful environment to be in, with work as is described on her listing. We ended up extending our stay and we’re sad to say goodbye. Until next time. Big love 💕

Hacer voluntariado en Praderas del sur, ha sido de las mejores experiencias de mi vida; convivir con Katrin, estar cerca de las cabras y el resto de los animales y así como estar rodeado de tanta naturaleza fue increíble. Las tareas son sencillas y Katrin siempre te explica muy bien lo que hay que realizar, así que aprendes demasiadas cosas. Estás en una ubicación donde fácilmente puedes tomar transporte para conocer las distintas ciudades que el sur de Chile tiene para conocer. Recomiendo totalmente el voluntariado, estuve 5 semanas que se sintieron como 1 y sin duda extrañaré mucho. Gracias!

A Fazenda Praderas del Sur é um lugar maravilhoso e as cabras são muito amavéis! Muito bom para conhecer a rotina de um empreendimento rural e as atividades que o envolve. Recomendo!
