We are working on building a a self sustainable farm, and we'd love some help working on this dream.
So far we have managed to prep our land and plant enough food to begin harvesting, and we are currently working on prepping more land and getting the most out of the chicken coop.
Chickens are very sensitive animals, and they require daily attention. They need fresh water and a varied menu everyday. On our menu they have corn, bean sprouts, grubs, termites and different types of larvae.
This means we need to have a continuous supply of these sprouts, and maintain an optimum habitat for the bugs to thrive.
Its all about giving these animals or bugs or sprouts the right amount of quality food and water. If we want to have successful breeding,we must care for them as if they were our babies.
We welcome you to our farm to enjoy the peace and quiet of the Sierra, and thank you for helping us take care of our animals. It is 1 hour into the mountains, in a jungle setting.
Our farm is relatively new, and harvesting for meals is still limited. For our dietary needs, it is great , having Plantain, Yucca, ñame, pineaples and beans. Friendly neighbors have oranges, avocados, and much more. The river is nearby, and the creek is right there. (For Fish and shrimp). We do still have to buy basic groceries, things like oil, rice, seasonings and meat or poultry for those who eat it. For purposes of your meals, please bring your own groceries the first couple of weeks as you acclimate.
We will do our best to answer all emails. We are online December and January definitely. We have no electricity in the farm and no cell signal.
Babysitting and creative play
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We have the opportunity to work with local farmers who have been teaching us a lot. If you are interested in living off the land, you will have exposure to all relevant topics as we build this self sustainable farm.
