Volunteer Work on a Mexican Dairy Farm
This is for volunteer who loves the outdoors, organic farming, cows, cheese and a friendly family environment.
Tierra Luna is a dairy farm situated about 40 minutes from Puerto Escondido. The 120-hectare farm normally holds 50 animals.
The 16 milking cows produce between 50 to 80 liters of milk daily, depending on the season, of which most is sold to local people for cheese production. The farm also produces its own cheese. Tierra Luna have up to 20 calves and heifers as well as two bulls, three horses, a donkey and some chickens.
Aside from milk production, Tierra Luna has an organic vegetable garden and produces tomatoes, eggplants, peppers, chilli and as well as different salads and herbs.
They produce organic fertilizer called “Boccachi” and maintain red wriggler worm farms that produce excellent compost. There is also a big garden area around the house with lawn and various fruit plants such as mango, banana, lemon, oranges, papayas and passion fruit.
Tierra Luna has an entertaining area with a swimming pool that can be hired for parties and events.
The farm’s newest venture is adventure classes for school children to awake their passion to nature and farming.
