Our Ranch is a cattle and agriculture ranch/farm.

The farm objective is to be self sustained. We already are in terms of water and partialy of food, and we are working towards energy independence. All work is related to these objectives. We don't profit from volunteers' work and everything we do is to make our lives and of future volunteers' lives more comfortable, more enjoyable, healthier and safer.

The ranch objective is to develop an echo friendly business to financially sustain the farm.

Activities & Shift

A four hour bus drive from Buenos Aires, three from Santa Fé/Paraná, two from Rosario, two hours from Fray Bentos, Uruguay, an hour from Gualeguaychú and 20 minutes from Urdinarrain. It is also 40 minutes away from Route 14, connecting Buenos Aires and Iguazú.

The building was made mostly from recycled old materials over twelve years ago. The style is a bit of a ranch, a bit of a loft, a bit of a (free) hostel.

Couchsurfers, motorbikers, travellers, workawayers, helpexers and other outcasts stop at our place to share good times of work, relaxing and nature. Minimum Stay is two weeks. There's no maximum.

We have 3 rooms with 2 beds each. Bathroom is shared.


Smokers are welcome. Drinking is OK, drunking is not. No drugs & work. It is dangerous not to be at our full awareness when working with animals and power tools.
There is no public transport from & to the ranch, but we can arrange a truck or a taxi, or you can hitchhike from Urdinarrain.

No time is too long if we all feel at ease. Sharing and caring rule. We strongly recommend you to leave your city habits behind and take your time to connect to and enjoy real country life. If you read all this, please state "Huija!" in your request.
