  • Description

    Description

    We are a selfsustaining and off the grid regenerative organic farm that focusses on the propagation of native chilean species. Our 5hcta farm is situaded in the Rapel river estuary in central chile. We are surrounded by some of the last native relict coastal forest and wetland systems in central chile that are highly rich in flora and fauna. We are conviniently located two hours away from Santiago and Valparaiso and very close to one of Chile’s main surf spots Matanzas.
    For the coming winter to spring season we are focussing on our vegetable garden, our tree propagation and soil preparation for Quinoa.
