We enjoyed walking around the farm, learning about the different plants, growth patterns, uses. The tasting at the end was delicious and interesting to see the plants during the tour, now in our plates. We also enjoyed learning about the family’s lifestyle and aspire to make some changes to ours.

We went there because my sister recommend it and was totally worth it, learning about the permacuture, understanding how nature works and tasting amazing food during the journey, all guided by Javier, an interesting guy with an amazing knowledge about plants and food who explains everything that you want to know and it’s definitely worth to have a sit with him and talk about his experience. A complete diferent tour that doesn’t try to sell you something and different from the usual visit to manufacturers that are a total bummer when looking for a real experience

After a muddy hike we arrived at up in the hill. We got a very friendly welcome. After we relax for a little we started the tour. During the tour we got a lot of information about the plants we saw and we got to tast leaves and smell them. After the tour there was a table full of food waiting for us, all grown on the farm. We got chocolate milk, fruits, vegatables, cacao, hot and cold snacks. We had a really nice experience. When we were done, we even saw a monkey, just before we went down again. I would recommend the tour to anyone, but even just to get a coffee.

After a rainy trudge up the slippy, muddy hill we were rewarded with an amazing tour of a beautiful farm and the most delicious produce I’ve ever tasted. Our hosts were so welcoming and informed that we all left passionate about mulch and propagating!
