Overview

At heart we are a small family farm with big dreams. From our small dairy farm we are now making home-made artisanal ice cream that we sell in town. Tours of the farm and/or the surrounding areas are available with Edgar as your guide. He is bilingual and has been guiding local tours since 2008. We also offer a volunteer opportunity at the farm, in the rural community of Rio Muchacho. Volunteers pay only $25 a week, working just half a day on the farm, practicing their spanish, learning about local agricultural practice and culture, and feeling part of our small family.
