  • Description

    Description

    This is a family organic farming project. We have a small production of vegetables, some trees and aloe vera. We also have strawberries, an aquapony system and a small composting plant for self-sufficiency. The farm measures one hectare and we work and live on it. We use solar energy and reuse organic waste and water.

    The accommodation we have for our guests is a small caravan for pick up and share the bathroom with us.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our farm is located in the north of Fuerteventura, a great place to enjoy the sea and water sports. We have been practising organic farming for over 15 years. In a place that looks like a desert, we have managed to create a fertile soil in which almost all the vegetables grow. We also have an aloe vera crop and a place where we make our compost in a semi-industrial way. We are trying to improve every day to achieve self-sufficiency. Our electrical energy comes from the sun and the wind, we have an electric car and we want to put a biodigester to cook. We can teach our guests anything they want to know about any of these topics.


    Nuestra finca está situada en el norte de Fuerteventura, un lugar estupendo para disfrutar del mar y de los deportes de agua. Practicamos la agricultura ecológica desde hace más de 15 años. En un lugar que parece un desierto, hemos conseguido crear un suelo fértil en el que crecen casi todas las hortalizas. También tenemos un cultivo de aloe vera y un lugar donde hacemos nuestro compost de forma semiindustrial. Estamos intentando mejorar cada día para conseguir el autoabastecimiento. Nuestra energía eléctrica viene del sol y del viento, tenemos un coche eléctrico y queremos poner un biodigestor para poder cocinar. Podemos enseñar a nuestros invitados todo lo que quieran saber de cualquiera de estos temas.
