we own a little mainly organic working farm in the end of valle rio claro, at about 20km distance coihayque, at the XI. region in chilean patagonia. we try to produce as much farm grown food ourselfes as possible, i.e. vine (cherry and rosehip, bread, cheese, butter, jam, ham, sausages...
the climate is very special and a challenge. so far we do not have permanent electricity but actually there is a project in process to get connected to the net this year.

staying and working with us means "back to the basics". simple and sometimes a bit old fashioned.
we are a family of 8, almost 9 children plus the parents.
we need help with the outdoor farm work (male workers), which means also a lot of fire-wood and timber work, fence repairing, construction, some help with tourist activities, and as well with indoor work (female or male helpers), which includes taking care of the little children and helping with homeschooling with the elder ones.
we run livestock: sheep, cows, pigs, hen, dogs and cats, as well as a horse.

life here is very adventurous and every day has its own challenge. helpers get the possibility to enjoy and be part of the great patagonian nature around our farm.

we would love to see a minimum stay of 2 weeks up to some months. we offer a little cabin for our helpers and some basic food supply depending on the season and availability.
