Who we are

As a child, Augusto spent most summers on his Aunt's farm in las Pampas, Argentina where he was immersed in rural traditions. He is a design and mechanical engineer with a range of skills with which he finds innovative ways to develop the infrastructure of the farm.

Louisa's love of the land and nature is deep rooted in family history - four generations of farmers in England. After graduating from university as a teacher, Louisa was limited to growing beans inside the classroom for Science experiments until the couple relocated to live in Tanzania as volunteers.

Living in a rural village in a remote region of Tanzania in a 100% sustainable eco house they both learned more about excess, consumerism and community- based projects. It was a life changing experience which motivated the couple to change their lifestyle. After this Louisa developed a small garden in Buenos Aires.

During yet another relocation the couple started up a small cooperative farm in Texas. Working with neighbours they sold organic vegetables, herbs, dips and breads at the local farmers market. Louisa also helped promote the market and manage the branding.

Just before moving to Italy the couple volunteered during the summer on an organic, sustainable farm outside of Bath. This final experience gave Louisa the confidence to leave full time teaching and focus on farming full time.
