  • Description


    We are a family of an environmental consultant and a doctor, who live with our 7 and 9 years old kids in a beautiful mountain just 1.5 hours from Bogotá and 30 minutes from La Vega. Our project is about growing and delivering door to door organic products, fruits and vegetables, coffee, Cocoa, nativa cereals and others, from our farm and from other producers. (We do not produce all of these products, such as coffee and cocoa)
    Our place is very beautiful, with lots of forests, clean manantial water and biodiversity, and with a perfect weather, seasonaly rainy.
    Our kids are homeschooled and therefore we would enjoy people from other places of the word for them to see and learn from others cultures.

    Somos una pareja de un asesor ambiental y una médico que vive con sus hijos de 7 y 9 años en una finca y reserva en las montañas de La Vega, Cundinamarca. Tenemos un proyecto de cultivos y comercialización de productos orgánicos en Bogotá, para lo que producimos diferentes verduras y frutas orgánicas, huevos y pollos. Comercializamos nuestros productos y aquellos que producen otros pequeños productores como nosotros. No producimos café o cacao. Estamos en proceso de organizar nuestra finca para recibir un turismo de salud y naturaleza. Nuestro lugar es hermoso, lleno de bosques naturales, biodiversidad y montañas, en un clima perfecto! Por temporadas lluvioso. Nuestros hijos son educados en casa, por eso nos encanta recibir gente de otras culturas para enriquecer su aprendizaje.

    Bienvenidos! Welcome!
