  • Description


    I am Oscar, together with my siblings we have a Carbon Neutral Organic Farm, in the The Colombian Andean Mountains, “The Home of the Condor”. We are Civil Society Nature Reserve, members of OECMs (OMEC), the World's protected areas, (Proyecto Paisajes Sostenibles), on the socio-environmental corridor of the nevados. The farm Its located at about 2000m above sea level, in the north of the department of Tolima, 20 minutes away from the the unique town of Murillo, with its colorful vernacular architecture, and the wonderful small city of Libano which is surrounded by beautiful green mountains and pleasant coffee farms.

    We have free range animals (cows, horses, chickens, turkeys, ducks and rabbits ), vegetables, aromatic herbs garden, orchards (Granadillas, uchuvas, avocados, guamas, lulos, sapotes, feijoa, limes, figs, blackberries) and grains. Most jobs are by hand, so we do not use large machines. The biggest part of the farm is native grassland and untouched primary rain forest which we protect.

    We have a beautiful landscape with spectacular view down to the Magdalena River Valley, up to Parque Nacional Natural de los Nevados, the wonderful Nevado del Ruiz, and the Geoparque Volcanico del Ruiz, The natural landscape is so quiet and peaceful.
    From the mountains come clean rivers, where we get fresh drinkable water from. The main building of the farm is a beautiful old, "Bahareque" house which has a lot of flowers and big Terraces around it.

    A lot of the time the farm is in the clouds which makes it interesting and sometimes a bit mysterious. There is a nice middle temperature up here. Over the day it can be nice and warm and at night it gets cold.

    We are open minded and love traveling ourselves. Partly I´m living in Japan and Colombia.
    We are curious to meet new friends, so everyone is welcomed here.
    We can only accommodate you for a maximum of 3 weeks.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    Firstly , basiclly everyone here you meet in the farm or around they only speak Spanish which means you can improve your spanish skills very quickly. But do not worry, me and my brothers (some of them used to live in New England, USA for years) would help, like always

    Here you can learn about traditional farm life in Colombia: you have the chance to milk the cows (5-6am everyday), ride horses (we have primary rain forests and there are huge breath-taking views of the pasture around, so it is just magic to do that for everyone), get knowledge of how to grow diffrent herbs for tea, and we also make incense, natural soaps, candles, salt bath bottle, out of these herbs and we will teach you how to make all of them if you want!

    We can also teach you how to grow some tropical indigenous fruits, herbs, vegetables, and grain.

    We teach you how to cook with fresh local ingredients .

    We colombians love party and dance in this case you meet lots of locales .
    We love to party by the camp fire in the farm, with beautiful views of Parque Nacional Natural de los Nevados,Nevado del Ruiz and the Geoparque Volcanico del Ruiz, with wonderful starry nights above and sparking fireflies flying in the dark night, Magical.
