Hi everyone ! We own a 18 hectare animal cruelty free farm situated 2 hours from Rio de Janeiro. 45 minutes by plane to Vitória and 1 hour by car. We are located in the beautiful town Santa Teresa. Santa Teresa is the most famous for being a hummingbird paradise. We are looking for creative people that like to work with the nature and have a good time ! Good vibes only no pressure allowed ! We are also looking for people who like to help cook vegan/vegetarian food. We have many projects going on. Mainly turning our land into a syntrophic agriculture agroforestry farm. We also have some very nice Ecological construction projects going on, a house and a big ecological swimming pool.
We have 10 hectares of beautiful jungle (Mata Atlantica) and 8 hectares of farmland. We have a river with crystal clear water coming straight out of the national reserve, passing 850 meters through our property, with many natural pools and little waterfalls. Our neighbor is the amazing Augusto Ruschi National reserve with over 4000 hectares of protected forest. We are often visited by many animals like Capuchin monkeys, deer, foxes, armadillos and many other mammals. Augusto Ruschi was a famous Brazilian biologist specializing in hummingbirds. We are located at 750 meters of altitude so the temperature is very comfortable summer and winter and we have an ocean view.

The difference between us (Myself Kilian and Nina) is that we have had alot of experience as workawayers. We had some fantastic experiences and some terrible ones ! In this light we will treat whoever comes as we would like to be treated. We will share our knowledge but we are also keen to learn about new things as the both of us are trying to implement agroforestry techniques. We are starting to grow Shiitake mushrooms. We are trying to lose the hectic lifestyle and some days we take time and enjoy doing nothing and watching the birds and animals. Perhaps this is the most important lesson one can learn. Nina likes to teach Portuguese I am a basic carpenter/builder. Nina's mother is an artist and agronomist.
The skills of whoever wants to help on the land are not very important. We mostly look for independent people with a good vibe. We would love an engineer, biologist, agronomist or carpenter. But we give anyone a chance. I think any biologist would love to be on our land because the neighboring reserve has a stunning amount of biodiversity. The land also has very interesting problems as it used to be an eucalyptus plantation. The plantation was cut down and abandoned, the soil has suffered a lot. We are trying different methods (hugelkulture, biochar etc), to see wich way we can improve our soil the most effectively. For the people who like to cook, we will go to the market to buy whatever they like. For us eating and drinking are extremely important. Brazil has the best food and drinks in the world in my opinion. if you were never in Brazil you are in for and explosion of new fruits and flavors.

On the farm our main Languages are English and Portuguese. But we also speak Dutch, French, some Spanish and some German.
Currently we can accommodate workawayers in their own private room in our house or if you love camping we have tents that can be pitched under a roofed dry area. We have indoor and outdoor showers and kitchen. We are building a new house and then the house on the pictures will be completely available.
About 15 km from us there is a town called Santa Teresa, it's a student town where there are lots of things to see and do. there is a museum of biology, a university, beautiful waterfalls and lots of nice little bars and restaurants. You can also go hiking in the natural reserve. If you like climbing here is a paradise, boulders and rocks everywhere. There are lots of waterfalls around. You can also surf, the beach is about 40km's from the town we go there a few times each month. We like to live our life in a way we don't need a holiday ! The public transport in Santa Teresa is excellent. From Vitoria it is extremely easy to take a plane to Bahia, Rio, Sao Paulo or anywhere you want to visit in Brazil !
