    Description

    Hello! We are Simeon, Mary and our baby daughter Samantha. We are a young couple who live on a family owned certified organic farm located in a beautiful sub-tropical valley in the south of Spain in Granada province where we tend to a variety of fruit trees like olive, advocado, and various types of citrus fruit amongst others. We also keep a varied vegetable garden throughout the year which we normally guide by a lunar calender. We live off-grid and are powered by solar panels. There is spring water on the farm for drinking and irrigation which also provides the house.
    Simeon normally works maintaining other small farms in the area and on his own farm .
    Mary currently takes care of our garden, house, 2 dogs and of course herself and the baby.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We provide vegetarian or vegan breakfast and lunch for the workers to prepare for themselves. We will share what produce we have from the garden and farm at the given season (fruits, vegetables, herbs, olive oil) so workers can make their own dinner.

    Afternoons here are great for hiking and walks through the surroundig area or simply enjoying the views and tranquility from our farm.

    Our farm is located between 6 and 700 meters above sea level in a subtropical valley south of Granada, the nearest small town is a 30/40 minute walk downhill. The nearest bigger town is a 45 minute drive so we recommend some shopping for personal tastes and items for breakfast and dinner before hand.

    We are a 40 minute drive from the Costa Tropical. Granada city is an hour and a half by car, the Alpujarra and Sierra Nevada around an hour. Bus connections are very limited and restricted to weekdays.
