Volunteer in Patagonia in Chile. Join a family farm.

If you’d like to learn about farm animals – their care and feeding, then come visit us. We have lots of work and it is a perfect place to stay for a couple.

Volunteer in Chilean Patagonia – requirements & tasks

We live in Aysén region on a 120-hectare farm 30 minutes from Coyhaique. Here we keep sheep, poultry, pigs, cows, and we take care of our horse.

The tasks we face are to sow, harvest and feed the sheep/cows. In winter there is a lot of snow so our animals don’t have grass to eat and we have to feed them in bales.

We also cut trees from the forest to make and repair fences. In summer we dedicate ourselves to agrotourism. Tourist visit us to see birds, learn to milk cows and eat roasted lamb, which I prepare myself on an outdoor campfire.

We are happy to see the results of our labor, such as seeing little sheep, cows and piglets being born, eating healthy eggs and doing fun activities with tourists.

There are tasks to do every day, I would like you to help me with the chainsaw to cut trees, transport them. If you know something about carpentry, that would be great. But most importantly you need to be ready to help me with the animals. I will ask you for help for 30 hours a week.
