  • Description


    We are an international family of mixed Finnish, Dutch and Brasilian origins, Owner of the farm is my father an retired sea capitain. I live in Finland. I was last time in Artur Nogueira last January and im planning to go there again 2016 December - January. Im setting up this site to arrange help to my family who lives in Artur Nogueira Brasil.
    The organisation is just getting started so we need people who can work on their own and help us build the farm together. *smile*

    Any help from few days to few months would be great.

    Ideal would be to have people living each 2-3months at the farm around the year, Farm has plenty vacant rooms so lodging is no problem. Farm has atleast 6 vacant rooms atm.

    We have had many animals on the farm. Lately some pigs and chicken and geese. Few dogs have been around. Also Horses and Cows from neighbouring farms. My father loves horses but has no skills or energy to care fro them. Few years ago we had horse and carriage to bring farm products to the local market. Also there is a tekstil factory just next door so it would be easy to sell some mangos, vegetables to them going to work or after work.

    The farm needs terasses and water management. The farm has all necessities. Electricity, clean water and is lokated close to town. Plan is to build permaculture with water ponds and dikes to preserve and direct the masses of water entering the farm. Farm is situated downhill and borders to towns clean water river.
