RED DELICIOUS

Visiting a farm might be the last thing you think about when you plan on visiting Curaçao, right? I actually did just that the other day during a trip to my lovely island. This farm had been on my ‘to visit list’ for a while but due to the specific opening hours I kept on missing the boat. Finally my planned trip to Curaçao aligned with the hours and could finally stop by Hofi Cas Cora. At the big country house they maintain the so called farm to table concept and most of the products are grown right in the massive ‘back yard’. Sustainable, organic and all right on my dushi island, so a must try. At the family farm they also see it as their duty to raise more awareness and to have people choose a healthier lifestyle. The island very dependent on import so whatever they can cultivate themselves they will on the farm or get from other local farmers. Want to know about my experience on the farm? Keep on ready my lovelies.

Bon bini na Hofi Cas Cora! (Welcome to Hofi Cas Cora) Curaçao’s hottest farm.

Behind the farm you will find a huge piece of land where most of the products are being cultivated. Curaçao is naturally very dry but due but to the declining land this particular part is very fertile #score. Something to celebrate? How about a party in the farms back yard? Perfect for an outdoor party #aboveusallthestarsarewatching.

Someday owning a bright red house….#goals. ❤️

Baby, this is what you came for.. Food! It is very custom to have a hot meal for lunch on the island and to have a light supper (soup or sandwiches) in the evening. It is better for your digestion anyway and also helps fighting jetlag (which I am always dealing with). As for the menu, big thumbs up for the price and quality ratio!

At The Eatery, the farms restaurant you can order many delish organic dishes. Not everything is necessarily vegetarian or vegan but you’ll have enough options. You can choose to sit inside (Curaçao is prone to monsoons every now and then) or out. I love to have dinner outside because I miss doing that in the Netherlands (it is only possible about once a year ?).

Natural beauty for the inside and out. You can also buy many natural skincare and beauty products on the farm.

Luckily the awareness on healthy, organic food is growing on the island and more and more (mindfulness) and vegan food events are being organized. Did you know you can also follow yoga classes on the farm? The classes are on Monday from 7 to 8 pm, Tuesday from 6:30 to 7.30 pm, Wednesday from 7 to 8 pm and Saturday from 8:30 to 9:30 am (times may change so drop them a call just to be sure). A class will cost you fl17.50. Namasté.

This moussaka came from the farm and landed right on my table. Today I am consuming less meat and opt for vegetarian dishes in stead. I don’t want to put a label on it just yet and say that I will never ever eat meat again but for now I’ll see how my body will do without it (healthy protein rich vegetarian recipes are very welcome!)

Love desserts just like me? Don’t forget to check out the black board for the baked goodies. Too bad the vegan chocolate delight was finished but next time I’ll sleep in front of the farm to get dibs! ?

Next to being extremely Instagrammable my visit to the farm was definitely worth it. A very big plus for the concept as we need to raise more awareness on sustainability. Because the majority of all the produce are locally grown, the prices can also be kept low. The service was good, the staff very friendly and the dishes were delicious. Going back soon and dropping in on a yoga class too!

 

Take in account the opening hours of The Eatery:

Fridays from 10 am to 4 pm
Saturday and Sunday from 9 am to 3 pm
