We moved to our farm in December 2013. Have learn loads during this time and we are still enjoying this type of life.

There are lots of activities done in the farm, and many projects in which volunteers can help.
Volunteers will usually help with the veggie patch, fruit picking and processing and helping with the daily drill of feeding animals. We usually go and do a beehive inspection so that volunteers can have this first hand experience.

We currently have tropical fruit trees, mainly mango and citrus trees, beef cattle (11), bee hives (30) and 4 ponds for farming fish (non organic).

We dont update this post regularly, but we are active and will answer in the next 1 to 3 days.

About us:
We want to live on and from the land following organic principles. We used to live in London and worked in corporate jobs until June 2013, after which we did some woofing in the UK and HELPX in Italy.

Transport from Bogota is very easy. From the main Bus terminal there are buses every 20/30 minutes. They will leave you at the main road and from there is 1 hr walking or 15 minutes drive.

We are very chill out, and even though some days are hard (beeking, cleaining stables, etc), we usually do the work along with volunteers as for us volunteering is about sharing and exchanging.

Some FYI:
-We are not vegetarians, though not big meat eaters.
-You will have your own room.
-If you want to have internet, you need to add some money to a pay as you go number.
-We eat simple healthy food, lentils, chickpeas, beans,etc...
-Closer to the date of arrival I will send you instructions on how to get here.... basically a bus from Bogota (3hrs), and we will pick you up at a point in the main road.
-If you foot size is greater than size 43, we will not have rubber boots for you... try to bring ones.
-As we do beekeeping please let us know if you have a bee allergy or any other allergy.
