La Víspera is a well-established organic herb farm. In the
Herbolario herbs are dried and
processed into delicious blends on a daily basis. We also process herbal
extracts & massage oils and make our own mango- & cherry tomato
chutneys, jams, rhubarb sauce & fruity nectars. Besides we are
specialized in leafy vegetables & edible flowers. All our products are
part of the slow food menu at the Garden Café.
Every Wednesday we harvest fresh products for
the natural food lovers and creative chefs in the city of Santa
All beautifully finished houses are mostly built with natural local materials.
We are playing with round forms, the Golden Ratio Φ
and Feng Shui. A lot of experiments are going on at the moment.
Last November our creative local eco-constructor organized
a week course on the Finca to build a round, domed little house,
applying adobe, glassware and earthbags (superadobe).
The finca is home to
some 90 species of
birds; you can find iguanas, foxes,
weasels, guinea pigs, bats, and sometimes
even see an
a porcupine or
a mountain cat.
Native Park we cherish native plants
and trees. The stone walls are reminders of the old Inca road leading to
the local sanctuary, the current ruins of "El Fuerte."
