Taino Farm is a sustainable agriculture and educational center in Los Brazos, Dominican Republic. Our main focus are in permaculture, aquaponics, vermiculture and beekeeping. We are a member of the eXtreme Collective which includes the eXtreme Hotel, eXtreme Circus, eXtreme Fitness Camps and The Yoga Loft.

At Taino Farm, we are growing local and exotic varieties of fruit and vegetables, by maximizing our production through intelligent permaculture design that works with the existing ecosystems, geological formations, and local techniques. Our goal is to highlight the ease in which permaculture can be used as a way of providing a community with an essential highly nutritious diet.

Our commercial Aquaponics system is one of the largest and most efficient systems in the Caribbean. We raise Tilapia fish and a variety of plants —mint, hierbabuena, arugula, to name a few. We currently distribute locally, to our partners at the eXtreme Collective and to several supermarkets throughout the Dominican Republic.

At Taino Farm, we are developing various projects including a partnership with local farmers, upcoming workshops and courses with top instructors in aquaponics and permaculture. By demand, we are increasing our eco-tourism efforts to create a full-service retreat center at our facilities in Los Brazos.

Want to visit us? The Taino Farm tour includes a farm-to-table meal and a lazy river tube ride on the Yasica River.

Local businesses and personal shoppers are welcomed to our weekly open shop on Sundays from 11AM to 4PM.

We welcome volunteers and interns. For more information visit: www.tainofarm.com

  • Amazing experience! The amount of hard work put in to create a system that can support not only itself, but the community around it. Hope that others are inspired to follow these ways and create sustainable farms all across the country. 10/10 experience and would definitely recommend as there is no way to put into words the amazing work that has been done!
  • A great place to learn about different styles of farming, and the river is so nice to float down
