I am a french citizen living for 4 years in a farm, here in Brazil. The "Cerradinho fazenda" is located in the Chapada dos Veadeiros, 300km in the North from Brasilia.
The chapada dos Veadeiros is a well know area for alternative tourism. It is also the main reserve of water in Brazil. There are plenty of waterfalls in this area where the bresilian people loves to go.
The thing I like in here is that we are in the middle of Cerrado, which is the savannah with the largest biodiversity in the world. There are a lot of endemic plants and animals you won't see anywhere else.
The farm is located in rural area very well preserved. There is no agro-industry around so the land is chemical free. The Cerradinho farm owns 4 water sources which never get empty and a 80m deep artesian well. The irrigation of the land is done using the gravity principle. The atmosphere is not polluted and there is no chemtrail.
The weather is ideal for the land culture and for the people there is no need of house heater or cooler, most of the time we can live outside. For me, this land is a true Noah's ark.
I try as much as I can to avoid buying medecines or food to the industries. Instead, I choose to have a healthy diet, be autonome by eating the food which grows on my land and go toward simplicity.
To earn my living, I have an activity around social and eco-tourism. I rent 3 rooms equipped with a bathroom with breakfast and sometimes even the diner included. I also sell my homemade products (marmelades, dry fruits, honey, coffee,...) in the markets around.
