Our farm project, established in 2020, was 15 years in the making. After we married in 2005, we began to dream about the type of life that we wanted for our children. It was clear that we wanted to foster a spiritual environment where we could practice “simple living and high thinking.” Naturally, owning land was of the essence; so was caring for a few animals.
Although we considered staying in Puerto Rico, a visit to Alachua, Florida in 2009 helped us realize that we wanted to belong to that community. However, the journey to Florida had other geographical stops along the way (Mississippi, North Carolina, Georgia).
