Sítio Bela Vista
Help is needed in a small farm located in Cascata, rural district of the city of Pelotas, an important hub for farming (peach and wine production are among the biggest in the country). The farm is just 20 minutes from the city center via public transportation.
The house is quite spacious and cosy, there is also a barn, pasture for a few sheep I breed, boar sty, orchard, well spring, four cats and three dogs. The future plans involve bioconstruction, organic farming and the production of related products. I look forward to host you and provide you with great hospitality while you help me on the challenges that come ahead.
About Cascata. it is a great destination for visiting small producers and getting to know the region history, deeply connected to the Indigenous, African Brazilian and Gaucho culture as well as home to different immigrants that occupied the region (Pomeranian, French, German and Italian mostly). Cascata is also a great region for ecoturism, you can visit several waterfalls and a few rivers that run throughout the area.
Last but not least, Pelotas is also an important cultural hub and hosts a few festivals over the year (Jazz, Scenic, CIrcus, Street Food and Street Art).
I was raised in a farm nearby, in a traditional Gaucho family, so expect to live an immersive Gaucho experience. Traditional music, customs, barbecue and good chimarrão (type of tea brewed with the native Mate Herb) will always be on the menu. Moreover, I have worked and lived in different cities in Brazil (Rio de Janeiro, Belém, Porto Alegre among others ) and would be pleased to share what was learned with you.
