I enjoyed my experience here a lot! You feel like you're completely surrounded in nature, in a secluded part of the world. We did something different everyday, but be prepared for repetitive work! However, being out in the fresh air, no matter the job is a great way to spend your morning. Katya and Flaca(the baby goat) were lovely and shared their home with us, and cooked delicious meals! Be prepared for lots of cold and rain, in the winter months but you only work half the day and then the rest was free to explore and relax. Definitely would recommend!

it is awesome! There are a bunch of animals, very cool sustainable farming, tree cabin where you sleep, Katia and Luis are great people with a lot to share and teach, she also is a chef so the food is really good! There is also work like construction and lumber harvesting! Have fun, great experience!

Es una experiencia completamente sublime!! No hay forma de expresar lo bello que es convivir con Luis y Katya, pues ambos son personas maravillosas y atentas. Además, constantemente te enseñan sobre los cultivos, animales, cultura, tradiciones, o en general sobre cualquier cosa que se presente. Contacto con la naturaleza es ideal, y sobran palabras para decir que la tranquilidad y paz abunda en la zona.

Muy buena experiencia! El campo es perfecto para reconectarse con la naturaleza y aprender de animales y sostenibilidad. Katya y Luis son excelentes anfitriones siempre preocupados de todo! La comida es excelente y el lugar es perfecto para desconectarse de la ciudad.

El lugar es ideal para personas que quieran hacer trabajo de campo y solo descansar por la tarde (la granja está muy alejada de la sociedad: 90 minutos aproximadamente de caminata desde la granja hasta Quemchi, pueblo donde se puede tomar bus hacia algún otro pueblo).

Un detalle: yo si fuera el anfitrión le comunicaría todas las reglas al voluntario antes de que se acepte el voluntariado. Por ejemplo, yo al llegar a la granja me enteré que a veces tendría que cocinarme mi cena (me dieron alimentos para cocinar eso sí).
