Our project

Convinced that a positive change is possible, we work closely with the neighboring communities, following science-based practices that respect the native flora and fauna.

Organic principles

Organic principles & no agrochemicals

We choose natural practices and avoid agrochemical use in order to achieve a balanced ecosystem where the population can live in harmony with nature, under strictly organic and sustainable principles. We use only the vast resources provided by nature.

We prepare our own fertilizers through a composting process, adding native mountain microorganisms present in the area, enriched with biodynamic preparations and various minerals based on what the crops need.

Biodynamic

Biodynamic agriculture

Aligned with agroecological practices, biodynamic agriculture focuses on revitalizing the land and stimulating crops and animals to fully interact with their natural environment and cosmic forces.

Working on production

Accepting a change of paradigm, we are challenged to strike and keep a balance in the long term.

yerba producers

La Yerba Mate s the cornerstone of Reserva Deja Vú and our most valuable crop. We are convinced of the benefits derived from total land cover. To this end, we take advantage of naturally- and spontaneously-emerged native vegetation. With the introduction of native trees, we create a "shade-grown" Yerba Mate field, thus replicating, to some extent, the conditions in which Yerba Mate naturally grows.

sheep

Sheep control excessive cover crops, while producing fertilizers on the spot. Sheep manure is, in turn, collected and used for composting.

Beekeeping

Beekeeping aids in the pollination of our crops and contributes to the quantity and quality of seeds for our seed orchard. By incorporating native forest honey-bee species, beekeeping has become another productive unit.

We are also working to generate other products such as fruit trees, vegetables, medicinal and aromatic plants and fish, the star of which will be the pacu fish.

reforestation

Afforestation & reforestation

Implanting other native forest species amongst Yerba Mate crop fields contributes to biodiversity. It protects the soil from water erosion and restores the natural forest, thus creating a microclimate that supports the development of flora and fauna.

Benefits include the recovery of minerals, the supply of organic matter, the source of food and shelter to birds, insects, fungi and microorganisms, offering pollen and nectar for bees, and the generation of fruits and raw materials for medicinal and many other uses.

community and the environment

Committing to the community and the environment

With a strong social and environmental commitment, this venture is open to the community and to anyone who might like to see that sustainable and natural production is possible.

We offer free-of-charge training courses and advice to neighboring producers with tools that enable them to work in their environment and transform our planet together.
