    Description

    (English below - Inglés abajo)

    Somos una pareja (Damián y Paula) viviendo en una granja organica en Lobos (a 100km de Bs As). Queremos convertirnos en autosuficientes y es por eso que trabajamos muy duro en ello. Nos encanta la vida rural y nuestro estilo de vida. Criamos todo tipo de animales: pollos, gansos, patos, ovejas, vacas, caballos, cabras...se dan una idea. También cuidamos de nuestra huerta que siempre necesita un poco de cariño y mantenimiento. Nos encanta lo que hacemos y es por eso que queremos compartirlo con otras personas.
    En este momento nos estamos enfocando en abrir la granja a familias, niños y escuelas, como granja educativa para que vengan de visita por el dia. Tratamos de aplicar principios de permacultura, manejo holistico, ganaderia regenerativa, método biointensivo...y alguna que otra cosa más.

    We are a couple (Damian & Paula) living in a organic farm in Lobos, (100km from Buenos Aires city ). We wish to be homesteaders so we are working very hard on it. We love the countryside and this type of life. We raise all kinds of animals: chicken, geese, ducks, sheep, cows, horses, goats...you get the picture! :D We also take care of our veggie garden that needs constant maintainance. We love what we do that's why we want to share it with other people.
    Right now we are focusing on a project of opening an educative farm for families, kids and schools to come and visit.
    We try to apply principles and ideas from: permaculture, holistic management, regenerative farming, biointensive veggie production...and some more.

Estamos dispuestos a enseñarte lo que hemos aprendido hasta ahora. Es por eso que necesitamos gente que este realmente comprometida con la idea de venir al campo a trabajar y darle duro! que te parece? es para vos?

    En tu tiempo libre podés tomar largas caminatas y disfrutar de las vistas rurales de la pampa argentina, leer, mirar pelis, andar en bici o hasta practicar yoga! Varias veces a la semana vamos al centro de Lobos (4km) a realizar repartos o hacer mandados, así que esa es otra oportunidad de conocer el pueblo. A 15 km está la laguna de lobos para visitar. De vez en cuando, durante los fines de semana, recibimos la visita de amigos y familia y es una linda oportunidad para intercambias experiencias y aprender nuevas cosas.

    In your freetime you can go on long walks and enjoy the rural view of the argentinian Pampas, read, watch movies, bikeriding or even practice yoga !! We go very often dowtown (4km) to do some chores so you could also spend the day in town to get to know the place. there's also a lagoon 15km away. Sometimes, on the weekends, we receive our friends and family so it's a nice opportunity to keep practicing spanish and learning new things.
