OUR CHALLENGE WITH NATURE FOR SALE
We are a married couple that about 8 years ago, for a choice of "degrowth", we moved to live in the country, becoming farmers.
We fell in love with a farm of approximately 60,000 square meters, with two houses. We restored the first one, for the second one we foresaw the construction of a B&B, but a lot of work, commitments to which we continually calls the farm... we have "freeze" this project.
We channeled rainwater building two reservoirs of water (about 7000 m2 of water), so you can take advantage of rainwater in all crops, without going to spoil aquifers.
The farm is divided by a hectare of vines for wine and food, we have a small winery for processing grapes, with all the equipment.
One hectare of mixed orchards, not monoculture, because this will limit the possibility of infestation of pathogens.
Oh I forgot, this is a certified organic farm, as well as Radionics.
Apricots, peaches, apples, plums, cherries, pears, blackberry bushes American (thornless)
blackthorn and scattered around the farm.
A hectare of gardens, for seasonality, all irrigated.
Three greenhouses, one of which is heated.
In the heated one there are tropical fruits they produce, type casimiroe, lemongrasse guava, soursop.
An olive grove of 2 hectares with about 250 trees all already in production. We are also equipped with a mill, so we gather our olives and work directly and immediately above.
We have chicken coops, farmyard animals, swans, ducks, etc. ..
You may wonder:
Because our bet is over, we have the desire to become smaller, in touch with mother Nature but less demanding as life and living.
