    Description

    We are a german-nicaraguan family of 4 and live together with our 4 legged family members and volunteers and guests in a quiet peaceful place up a mountain.
    On our farm we have built three houses. We love BUILDING with different materials like bamboo, cement, wood and recycled things like glass bottles and old tires. And heading towards more and more natural construction.

    We have plenty of fruit trees and growing herb and veggi garden. We love permaculture and our gardens are all organic and often self seeding. We grow: Bananas, some Coffee, Avocados, Mandarines, all kinda herbs, tomatos, sweet peppers etc. etc.

    Also we host many animals like chickens, cats, dogs and horses.

    The HORSES build the foundation of our income and there are several options to get involved and live on our beautiful eco farm while studying natural horsemanship and the classical art of riding. There is also an internship we offer in the horse section. Opening for our internship from June/July! Minimum stay 2 months (preferably longer). You need to have a solid foundation in horses to be able to join us as an intern. We are excited to receive your aplication for this position!

    We are located up the montain of the small rural town of Tucurrique, that is 30 mins walk away or a 2000 Colones taxi ride.
