Simple Choice Farm

Non-member

Simple Choice Farm is a place of rich cross-fertilization: the luxuriant soil grows beautiful fruits and delicious vegetables, artists meet and mingle with each other, cerulean sky touches verdant earth at horizon's edge. We are a farm of ideas and beautymaking; home to ancient wisdom, mountain-ringed wildflower meadows and huge cactus filled bosques in an old, old, volcano-formed valley…a peaceful, lively sanctuary for butterflies, hummingbirds and songbirds…a place to celebrate and acknowledge the past and present, while you dream and make your future.

Let the Farm nurture you, inspire you, spark and ignite your creativity.

The Farm renews us daily. Wake to a magnificent sunrise, long and lazy: in these mountains you wait and when the sun comes over the mountains and shines into your space, it is a special time, a chance to reshape and redefine where you are in your creative life, in a gentle and beautiful circumstance.
Here you will have time to ponder, to rest, to experience living history in day to day life: where 4500 years of history is played out for you in the form of right Now.
In our nearby town of San Miguel de Allende, a UNESCO World Treasure, you can walk the cobblestone streets, enjoy the social pizzazz of the Jardin, our zocalo, set to Mariachi music..towered over by the magnificent Parochia, a fabulously ornate, salmon pink Cathedral. There is always something happening in town!

Art galleries and arts galore: see vibrant frescos, world-class tinwork, artisans in glass and clay and hand-woven fabric, hidden courtyards filled with flowers, angels in the architecture, carved mermaids and taco stands where delicious fragrances sizzle towards you, invite you...the Beauty is symphonic!
Then back home, to the Farm...to take all you've seen and heard and tasted and received...and turn it back into the Gift...so that you may give...

Location

San Miguel de Allende: Mexico

At Simple Choice Farm, we offer the peace and beauty of a rural retreat, egrets and cormorants on the wing, situated in the fertile valley between the Los Picacho mountains, 10 miles from enchanting, and visually and aurally magnificent San Miguel de Allende, a UNESCO World Treasure . We enjoy 330 days of sunshine, with an average daily temperature of 80˚F, and a comfortable sleeping, nighttime temperature of 50˚F. Coyote's song under a starry sky, feasting round the bonfire, chatting about your day’s work along with other artists, enjoying fresh bread, warm, from our wood-fired outdoor ovens, over a glass of wine, or a magnificent hot chocolate, are just an average day here at Simple Choice Farm. Every artist has a completely private apartment, or small Zen house, or perhaps our new 1 bedroom Studio sunny and beautiful, with a lovely workspace, full kitchen, gardens, an open invitation to enjoy our greenhouse vegetables and fresh eggs from the henhouse, and private ingress and egress, and access to Internet. Life at Simple Choice Farm, under the beautiful morning sun, is a fabulous place to get creative juices flowing. Our gardens are Eden! This valley is magnificent: a hiker's dream. Our drinking water is absolutely pure. And the air as well. We invite every artist to share their work, and enjoy fireside conversation in the evening. Or have solitude as desired. At Simple Choice Farm, producing art is not a pre-requisite, should an artist decide to rest, walk, read, and dream, ponder, it is all a celebrated part of the creative process, and we understand that: we want each artist to have the rich, soul-feeding time that fits THEM! That is what we, at Simple Choice Farm, are about.
