The Waterfall of Brava.

 So many waterfalls at Finca Quijote, this one feeds Brava.

 Malanga, high in fiber and good for you... and beans growing down in the valley garden near the river.

Eggs and Tangerines


The eggs come precolored depending on the type of mama chicken.


Fresh tangerines from our trees.

Video of WWOOFers at the farm...

WWOOFers Evelina and Karolis made this beautiful video of the farm and of other volunteers.  Thank you for this awesome sharing....  http://vimeo.com/60415169   Shot entirely on our farm....





 

organic produce from the greenhouse


We grow most of what we eat, all organic.  Our beef is grass-fed, we raise our own animal feed.  For the cows, high protein grass and they love fresh orange peel with their grass.

Costa Rican Chameleon




Felipe says, he met this fellow while pruning the landscape.  The Costa Rican Chameleon showed his true colors....both brown and green.

 From left to right, Evalina, Karolis, Sallu, Umar and my husband Felipe.  We are about to have our organic farm lunch using the veggies we grow and our homemade bread.  Sallu and Umar made the floral arrangements.
The floral arrangements are sooooo sweet.  They make life a little more beautiful...if that is possible.

Our wonderful wwoofers in the Greenhouse

Karolis and Evelina are from Lithuania.  They are traveling around the world and are 1/2 way through their journey.  Umar and Sallu are Agro Engineering students at EARTH University.  Their home is Sierra Leone, but for 5 years while studying they are living in Costa Rica.

Giant Beetle

 Giant Beetle, this is the biggest one of this type we have seen on the farm.  Do not yet know what type of beetle he is, but he is beautiful.

The Farm at dusk...so peaceful


Looking from the South to the North, as the sun was going down last night.  To the left of the photo you can see Guadua Bamboo flowing in the breeze.  The birds love the bamboo.

Sundown on the farm, and the clouds were so beautiful we could not resist taking their photos.  The farm house can be seen in the botton portion and the Turrialba Volcano in the distance.  Another WOW day...

Volunteers at our farm, Claire and Ethan, have been busy building our bamboo greenhouse using Guadua bamboo grown here at the farm.   Seen here working on the herb spiral.  Soon tons of herbs, eggplant, tomatoes, and other crops needing a dryer climate, will be thriving in their new shelter.

Boa of the Day




Marcos our farm manager with a Boa he found today.  We love having Boas on the farm.

Sunset at Finca Quijote...





It's a boy, born early this morning on the farm.  New life, perfectly as it should be.
