  • Description


    We are Ana, Mariano and Lihuen. We live in a beautiful mountain at 2400 meters above sea level, very close to the La Chorrera waterfall, the highest in Colombia, an hour and a half from Bogotá. We are developing a family project of restoration of native forest and organic agriculture on two hectares. We produce organic fertilizers and processed foods with the organic production of the farm, and we sell them.
