We are a big family, dad, mom and four kids. We decided to live in the countryside because we want to give a different education to our children. We have a project, a turistic farm. We are planning to do an ecobuilding to receive turists and give them regional food. There will be animals and an organic garden that is going to provide the restaurant.
The farm is located in Carmelo, a turistic region that receive people from Argentina, Brazil, EEUU and Europe. This is a wine region where are six wineries that organize visits. The emblematic grape from Uruguay is the tannat.
We are at 15 km from the city, there are dairy farms near us.
