For years the Sanandi Family has worked to create a true sanctuary. A place where the Earth is whole, where her life-giving properties are profoundly respected, where we can walk in synergy with the alignment of our blue planet.
Though the journey is long, and the work is never done in Valle la Paz, the biodynamic farm is fully functional and perfectly (if not painstakingly) maintained.
We would love to invite you to visit Rancho La Paz, to see the ponds and taste the spring water, to walk amongst the flowers and sit in the pagodas.
Valle la Paz is located in the heart of Mexico—2.5 hours Southwest of Mexico city, outside of Valle de Bravo. It can be difficult to access and we because we are a working biodynamic farm, we aren’t open for drop in visitors. For now, take our aerial tour and sign up for our mailing list. You’ll be the first to know about our next seminar.
The farm is gorgeous slice of paradise now, but it has been a journey to reach this goal. We can never forget where we came from—Valle la Paz started as a neglected piece of Earth with compacted soil and no biodiversity.
It took more than ten years, along with passion, hard work, research, and imagination to make this sustainable dream, and even longer to formulate and perfect the Sanandi product line to help you take back control of your health.
Every bottle of product you open, every drop you consume, holds the essence of this timeline.
