  • Description

    Description

    We are a certified organic and biodynamic farm located in South Brazil in the small city call Angelina, one hour from the capital Florianópolis. We are growing a wide range of different vegetables, baby leaves, herbs, "PANCs", fruits and flowers. We sell at the markets, directly for Chefs and delivery.
    In 2018 we start receiving tourists , we have chales to rent, and a small bistro (Mars from November), when we serve a Brunch and invite Chefs to cook for our customers. We make everything we use here like iogurt, farm cheese, bread, jelly, “ de leite”.
    We are located in a beautiful area of 98 hectares, most of native forest. A 20 minutes from de city, here is a quiet place where we can hear the sounds of nature while we work. We have lakes, springs, rivulets, and also birds and butterflies. The plantations are small refuges scattered in the middle of the forest.
    We are a non smoking place.
