  • Description

    Description

    Our farm is nestled in the mountains of Santander, Colombia, bordered by two rivers and a one hour ride away from San Gil. With 40 acres of virgin land, a gentle weather, and a host of nature activities, it is the ideal getaway for workawayers looking to explore the wild side of Colombia !

    At this moment we are germinating seeds to reforest part of the mountain that was used in the past for grazing cows. We also harvest organic coffee. We want to start a project with bees to harvest honey, we are experimenting with making liqueurs with the fruits of our farm, soaps, essential oils ... so this is a space to experiment. All people who want to learn or share knowledge are welcome in our place. 😀

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We dream our farm to be a place of experiment, of creativity and cross-cultural, where people can learn by puting their knowledge together : skills, languages, etc. ( we can teach Spanish, French and Russian). We are city-people who decided to go live in the countryside, so everyday is a learning experience for us! Hope it can be one for you too!
