I had a wonderful time at the farm! The team and locals are very kind, respectful, and welcoming. Although the work was definitely a bit intense at times due to the humid heat in June, it was very rewarding! Especially the food and snacks throughout the day. I always had enough to eat (and that's saying a lot for me). I also learned quite a bit about the farm farming during the two weeks I stayed even through the language barrier. Thomas was not there while I stayed, but all the other workers and volunteers and I connected well and had a good time. Thank you for having me!

Savar has all the good qualities we can wish for in a volunteer. His friendly personality and positive approach made an excellent exchange on all levels.

This is my first Worldpackers experience and I am grateful that it turned out wonderful! Everyone on the farm was friendly and they made sure that the volunteers are doing okay. Some tasks include gardening, cleaning and building. There was plenty of time for us to recharge. On our off day we went on a day-hike. As a Muslim I was given the vegetarian meal option which was tasty especially the omelette! I miss everyone on the farm and I hope to come back again soon :)

It was great to have a Singaporean on the farm and we are very happy to have hosted Hazzie. She is a super volunteer with a curious, friendly and helpful approach. Contributed very nicely to a great time for everyone.

Working at the farm was one of the greatest experiences ever. From the moment we got there I felt so welcomed and happy. The food was incredible, the accommodation was comfortable, and the whole team at the farm was friendly, fun, and had so much to teach. I feel I learned so much about the process of growing coffee and just what it takes to run a farm like this. The work was sometimes tiring and hard but it felt so rewarding to be a part of growing coffee. I loved the farm and miss it so much and would highly recommend volunteering here to anyone, you won't regret it.

My partner and I's stay at the farm was unforgettable! By the end of our three weeks there, we felt like we were leaving our home away from home :) We got to learn so much about the coffee growing process and get to be a part of it as well! The work was as agreed upon, some days it was pretty physical, and others it was more relaxed! The food, coffee, and tea were all incredible! A special thank you to Dipa for making us feel so welcomed and appreciated from the moment we arrived! And Nana, Ama, Thomas, Dinesh, Mongale, Bishal, we will miss you all! But we'll be back again one day :)

Cara stayed with us for 3 weeks and tried her hands at many different farm tasks, from compost making to coffee picking and sorting. She did all the work with curious determination and performed all task perfectly. She is a quick learner and very sociable, integrated very well in our community. A perfect match with us!

This was a truly beautiful expérience for me ! I left with my heart filled with peace and joy ! the farm is a very welcoming place for everybody, you are sure to be well taking care of. Nature wise the location is beautiful, and so much work goes to their garden which makes it a pleasure to work there. Dont hesitate to ask questions and for explainations to understand the work you are doing, it is very interesting to learn about the plants and the way everything is haddled. After a few days you will feel at home : ) It is a great place as well to learn some Nepali and local traditions !
