We grow tomatos for drying and later processing between the months of September thru to May.our season really gets going from the end of August with seeding the green houses, there after plenty of care and planting out around mid November. Harvesting and processing from mid January thru to March.
Experimental project this season is growing tomatos with drip irrigation and mulching...........interesting?!
Agro tourism comes along with the project. Our finca is turn key, from seed to green house to planting, harvesting and processing.
We have 5 llamas, 1 horse, 1 donkey, Jenny, she talks alot, 5 dogs and 7 cats...... all including ourselves are non smokers.
We are multi trade persons. We do our own civil, mechanical and electrical works including steel fabrication and development of our specialised implements. machinary and process equipment.
The finca is located 15 kms from the town centre on paved roads. One of us travel to and from town almost daily. There is a bus service available at the front gate.
Type of work
Helping with Tourists,
Cooking / shopping,
Be great to have people who have general interest in farming, however the season does drag out a bit. Tomatos have a mind of their own, pressure on....off as the harvesting is selective for sun drying..weed control can be challenging! We participate in all aspects of the finca. Time off is important along with meeting friends and family.
English and Spanish
Twin share. Common kitchen, shared duties.
Accomodation and separate bathroom away from the main house.
What else ...
We are busy professionals. Climate from end of October is very hot time end of March. The harvesting and drying is pretty intense. This is semi desert and do our best to conserve water.Great grape and fruit growing region. Enjoy!
