I loved my time at Agripunk! It was a fantastic place to reconnect with nature and learn about how to care for animals. Desirée and David were so kind and really made me feel welcome. The tasks were sensible and didn’t take up too much time. Overall a great place to take a break from city life and spend time with animals and nature!

Dirsee and Davide is super nice, and the animals here are so lovely, the work was not hard, and it is really fun for a guy like me that always living in the city. I am not a vegan but you will find there are many delicious foods and recipes there😘, and don't miss the live band performance😘

I would like to come back again especially Dirsee recommend in the spring time😊

I learned a lot from them and I appreciate the generosity they have by opening the place for people that want to learn and the courage to face the injustices.
Besides, Desirée picked me in the train station, took me to a store to buy heavier clothes and we had an amazing pizza night.
It’s a farm, if you intend to go there you need to put this in your mind, there are no luxury but there is a lot of love. Working with big animals was an unique experience, you need to be attentive. Your award is the happiness the animals show in their eyes.
The only pity is that I stayed for a short period.

What a experience! It's a beautiful work they are building it's a kind of thing that you see and realize that the world can be diferent than we are used to. The work is hard and when you finish you feel really tired but it's worth it you have a feeling that you are helping somehow. The owners Desi and David are lovely and always read to hear you If you need something or if you have an advice. This is so true that We decided to make a project during my stay we made a vídeo telling the story of Agripunk you can watch It on YouTube. I'll never forget that! https://youtu.be/etDhlFcSXdU

Desi and Davide (and Arturo) were really, really great hosts. They care about the animals so much, and know them all so well, talking to us about each of their personalities. I felt great to help support the refuge, all the animals, and them as nice people. I still miss Peppy and Rocky (sheep and goat). The apartments for volunteers were a little rougher than I expected, but all quite functional, and Desi and Davide were immediately helpful when we had any needs. The other volunteers were great cooks and also really nice people, we had many great talks. I highly recommend Agripunk!! <3 <3
