We are a family of 4 - Andris, Gabriela, Fredis and I (Debora) who moved from London to the Latvian countryside searching for a more nature connected life. We settle in our farm, a 2.5-hectare farm nestled in a small village called Obeliškas, in the eastern part of Latvia. With a flourishing grasp of farming, hemp growing became a priority here at our farm. Why hemp? You may wonder... We believe that hemp is one of Mother Nature's most extraordinary plants due to its strong fibres and nutrient rich oils, the benefits are endless. We have no doubt that hemp can and will feed, clothe, shelter and heal the entire world.
We do indeed love what we are doing, and we hope that if you have the chance and are able to support our project you will also become part of our farm family dream!

If you are a hemp enthusiastic then we believe this is the perfect place for you! We use many traditional skills to process hemp and we are also open to new ideas. Besides the love we share for hemp, we are a multilingual family who loves to meet/host people from different countries, languages, and backgrounds. In and around the farm, there are endless possibilities to embrace the cultural experience more fully. We do have a private library with ~ 3 thousand books in more than 14 languages, a poet neighbor and plenty of other opportunities to learn, grow and flourish.
Hemp is a priority here at the farm however, activities are not strictly focused on hemp as we have different projects going on around the farm.
