  • Description


    Ten years ago I decided to change my life and moved to an abandoned farm, In the end of 2007 we started to plant our dream in this 13 hectares and to live in harmony with the nature, produce our own food, have our animals...

    We are in the mountains in a subtropical clima with the four seasons well defined that change completely the view during the year. This is the place where the best Brazilian wine is produced, you will be in touch with all this producers.

    The daily activities are diverse according to the biodynamic calendar and the needs of the property.
    Our ideia is to share experiencies and develop the project of biodinamic farm
    We don´t accept dogs here. Our animals are not used to them so far so even the best trained dog would be a problem for us.

    Plan for 2017:
    - two new areas to plant
    - renovate the farm house and the animal house
    - take care of the vegetables gardens
    - Technics to preserve food, drying, ferment
    - Plant trees
    - Take care about our animals
    - harvest, plant and learn about wild edible plants

    We wish that working together will be an enriching experience for all, so for us it's important to know what pushes you to share our project, hoping it would be a step ahead for your projects as well.
