    Description

    Hi!
    We are an organic vegetable and sheep farm, located 90 km from Buenos Aires, in one of the most fertile lands in the world.
    We started in August 2014, left the city and jumped right into it without previous experience.
    We found many obstacles, worked like crazy (the place was in very bad shape) and now, four and a half years after, we are living from what we produce.


    Some of our inspirations and models for the way we produce are Joel Salatin, Conor Crickmore from Neversink Farm and Richard Perkins, of course also permaculture and many many other great people and movements who innovate and share their knowledge. We are a real productive enterprise, and sustain ourselves from what we produce. I think is important to say this because there are not many of this enterprises here in Argentina, where it's not easy to make a living doing this…
    We do rotational intensive grazing with our sheep. We are very happy and proud to be producing this way in the same land where GMO grain was produced before our arrival. And we are rapidly recovering the soil and its life!


    We like to receive volunteers, specially if they're interested in learning-by-doing organic vegetable production, also help us in maintenance, cook, and many other activities!

    It's pretty easy to arrive from Buenos Aires. The bus stops at our gate.

    Accommodation

    We have two houses, and we are two people living permanently in the farm, one in each house.
    They are a bit old and still need recovery in some areas, but they are fully functional.
    And there is lots of room to spare!
    All meals are provided, we have an omnivorous diet very rich in vegetables. It's no trouble at all having vegetarian alternatives.
    We cook and eat together at least once a day, the other big meal we can do together or not, we decide freely.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We can eat typical and delicious argentinian asado (barbecue)
    You can enjoy the nice weather and nature, rest, visit little attractive towns nearby, go to Buenos Aires where there is always lots of things to do and come back
    We have a privileged location, next to the highway. There are buses every hour running outside our gate, so it's possible to alternate between a huge noisy city and almost only bird sounds in only a two hour ride.
