  • Description

    Description

    We are Andres and Aurora. We have our organic farm in Tabacundo. We grow vegetables, grains and soon fruits, respecting the land. And we have animals (chickens, pigs, goats, guinea pigs, horses) that help us with their compost, their eggs, their milk and their meat, and we give them a lot of love;). Our goal is to be self-sufficient as much as possible, that is in our food, that of our animals and in our way of farming.
