Welcome to 5EyesFarm

We believe that positive change can happen. By growing healthier food and developing better methods, we can implement and share creative resilience to strengthen all our futures.

We are learning to restore the land, create organic gardens, recycle everything, build sustainably, better prepare food and share learning.

We are now on our way to establishing forest gardens – the most productive use of land. And we have a bigger plan for teaching and social development in the region.

We invite you to join with us on a journey of discovery as we experiment with and develop a range of innovative projects.

We have the power to live well, sustain what we have and make good choices. These approaches lead to health, vitality and growth.

We are having fun experimenting with wonderful exotic flavours and combinations, playing with traditional plants, natural medicine and herbal remedies.

Mostly we work with what we have to make the best of what is around and keep it clean, local, plastic-free and regenerative.

Organic Farm

Organic Farm

Organic farming is more than growing good foods. It is a way of life. It is connected to the soil, the land, and the environment. It is about the water and the air, the biodiversity around us and the ecology. It is about balance and integration and managing a myriad of elements and products as sensitively as possible.

We are developing integrated methods and practices of small scale organic farming. Our motivation comes from the idea that 'We are what we eat,' so we are conscious of all the processes of making good food.

Using a combination of permaculture design, natural farming practices and small edible food forest we are capitalising on small space and abundant, healthy production.

The organic farm serves as a canvas for hands-on learning and workshops and includes the animal farm and all its processes and the aquaponics system along with productive gardening and traditional herbs, spices, teas and medicines from the earth.

Pertanian Organik

Pertanian organik bukan hanya tentang menanam makanan yang baik dan sehat. Ia adalah cara hidup. Terhubung dengan tanah, bumi, dan seluruh lingkungan hidup. Meliputi air dan udara, keanekaragaman hayati di sekitar kita dan ekologinya. Ia merupakan keseimbangan dan integrasi serta pengelolaan aneka elemen serta produk dengan cermat dan penuh perhatian.

Kami sedang mengembangkan metode dan praktik terpadu pertanian organik skala kecil. Motivasi kami berasal dari gagasan bahwa ‘Kita adalah apa yang kita makan’, jadi kami sadar akan semua proses pembuatan makanan yang baik dan sehat.

Menggunakan kombinasi desain permakultur, praktik pertanian alami, dan hutan pangan kecil, kami memanfaatkan ruang terbatas untuk produksi yang berlimpah dan sehat.

Pertanian organik berfungsi sebagai kanvas untuk pembelajaran langsung dan lokakarya yang terkait peternakan, sistem akuaponik, kebun produktif, racikan ramuan tradisional, rempah-rempah, teh dan obat-obatan alami dari Ibu Bumi.

Sustainable Practice

Recycle, remake, regenerate, reclaim, restore

Managing our waste plastic and green waste has become a new exciting project. Building and making with recycled materials and restoring old things to make them fresh or re-using items in different ways – practical, helpful, zero waste and environmentally friendly – is sustainable practice at 5EyesFarm.

Sustainable practice starts with recycling. All that plastic waste – what do we do with it?  We manage it by making eco-bricks for building – plastic drink bottles that we fill with small plastics from wrappers, straws, bags etc. We hope to slowly expand the plastic waste management throughout the village, the region, and beyond.

Organic waste – we use for compost and for breeding insects that we will feed to the animals for their high protein content. We see the conversion of all this excellent waste turned into something useful for the earth and farming systems, growing good food and raising healthy animals.

Sustainable practice starts with a change of focus from consumers seeking convenience to sustainers caring about impacts. Asking questions like where products come from, what kind of packaging, to use alternatives, how to save money, can we re-using, upcycle, remake, and try different options? Sustainability looks for long term solutions and is a creative practice that makes a small difference to the world we live in as we seek to produce a zero footprint for all that we do.

Praktik Berkelanjutan

Daur ulang, remake, regenerasi, reklamasi, pulihkan

Daur ulang, buat ulang, regenerasi, reklamasi, pemulihan.

Mengelola sampah plastik dan sampah hijau telah menjadi proyek baru yang menarik. Membangun dan membuat dengan bahan daur ulang dan memulihkan barang lama untuk membuatnya menjadi sesuatu hal yang baru atau menggunakan kembali barang dengan cara yang berbeda – praktis, bermanfaat, tanpa limbah, dan ramah lingkungan – adalah praktik berkelanjutan di 5EyesFarm.

Praktik berkelanjutan dimulai dengan daur ulang. Semua sampah plastik itu – apa yang kita lakukan dengannya? Kami mengelolanya dengan membuat eco-brick untuk bangunan – botol minuman plastik yang kami isi dengan plastik kecil dari pembungkus, sedotan, tas dll. Kami berharap untuk perlahan memperluas pengelolaan sampah plastik di seluruh desa, wilayah, dan sekitarnya.

Sampah organik – kami gunakan untuk kompos dan untuk pengembangbiakan serangga yang akan kemudian kami jadikan pakan untuk hewan ternak karena kandungan proteinnya yang tinggi. Kami melihat konversi dari semua limbah yang sangat baik ini berubah menjadi sesuatu yang berguna bagi bumi dan sistem pertanian, menumbuhkan makanan yang baik dan memelihara hewan yang sehat.

Praktik berkelanjutan dimulai dengan perubahan fokus dari konsumen yang mencari kenyamanan menjadi pemelihara yang peduli akan dampak. Mengajukan pertanyaan seperti dari mana produk berasal, jenis kemasan apa, apa alternatifnya, bagaimana cara menghemat uang, dapatkah kita menggunakan kembali, mendaur ulang, membuat ulang, dan mencoba opsi yang berbeda? Keberlanjutan mencari solusi jangka panjang dan merupakan praktik kreatif yang membuat perbedaan kecil bagi dunia tempat kita tinggal saat kita berusaha menghasilkan jejak nol untuk semua yang kita lakukan.

Good Food

“We are what we eat” – Frank Zappa.

Ultimately 5eyesfarm is all about good food. We are learning where our food comes from and what it can do for us. We are also learning what we can do with food combinations. We can make juices, cakes, meals and combined flavours. It’s an ongoing creative experiment that we plan to integrate with traditional plant foods and create unique healthy culinary delights. 

We are learning the value of food and exploring how to prepare and combine good food, naturally preserve and store and package foods and the fantastic range of possibilities that can be great food in all its scope. 

The 5EyesKitchen is always buzzing with amazing foods and juices, desserts and cakes, loaves and fishes and experimental dishes. These come from the farm’s wide range of organic produce, and we are developing recipes and providing exotic spreads to guests and groups who take our tours, workshops, and field trips.

Makanan Baik

“Kita adalah apa yang kita makan” – Frank Zappa.

Pada akhirnya 5eyesfarm adalah tentang makanan yang baik. Kami belajar dari mana makanan kami berasal dan apa manfaatnya bagi kami. Kami juga mempelajari apa yang bisa kami lakukan dengan kombinasi makanan. Kita bisa membuat jus, kue, makanan, dan kombinasi rasa. Ini adalah eksperimen kreatif berkelanjutan yang kami rencanakan untuk dipadukan dengan makanan tradisional berbasis tumbuhan dan menciptakan kelezatan kuliner sehat yang unik.

Kami mempelajari nilai makanan dan mengeksplorasi cara menyiapkan dan menggabungkan makanan yang baik, mengawetkan dan menyimpan serta mengemas makanan secara alami dan berbagai kemungkinan fantastis yang dapat menjadi makanan lezat dalam semua cakupannya.

5EyesKitchen selalu ramai dengan makanan dan jus yang luar biasa, makanan penutup dan kue, roti dan ikan, serta hidangan eksperimental. Ini berasal dari berbagai produk organik pertanian, dan kami sedang mengembangkan resep dan menyediakan aneka sajian eksotis untuk tamu dan kelompok yang mengikuti tur, lokakarya, dan kunjungan lapangan kami.

Community Engagement

Connecting through a model farm

Our primary purpose at 5EyesFarm is to create an education model based on organic farming and permaculture principles. The model is purposefully small scale to prove food sustainability for smallholder farmers and families. Subsistence farming, derived from the monoculture practices of big Ag and big business, is not a sustainable approach long term any more than the fossil fuel industry is viable going forward. We need alternative approaches that look back to traditional small scale agriculture and embrace contemporary technologies and methods with a values base.

It is good news that the UN is promoting the current global interest for small scale organic farming as a critical strategy to address the rising effects of climate change and as a way forward for future food security. We want to model possibilities that others can try as we continue to engage with the community in the village, the region and beyond. Our project is in Indonesia for Indonesia.

 Our teaching practices are transitioning back to forest garden production and integrated farming through permaculture and natural farming principles. We respect and combine traditional methods in all that we do.

Pelibatan Masyarakat

Terhubung melalui model pertanian.

Tujuan utama kami di 5EyesFarm adalah untuk menciptakan model pendidikan berdasarkan prinsip pertanian organik dan permakultur. Model ini sengaja dibuat skala kecil untuk membuktikan ketahanan pangan bagi petani kecil dan keluarga. Pertanian subsisten, yang berasal dari praktik monokultur perusahaan besar dan bisnis besar, bukanlah pendekatan jangka panjang yang berkelanjutan seperti halnya industri bahan bakar fosil yang layak di masa depan.

Kita membutuhkan pendekatan alternatif yang melihat kembali ke pertanian skala kecil tradisional dan merangkul teknologi dan metode kontemporer dengan basis nilai. Sebuah kabar baik, PBB sedang mempromosikan pertanian organik skala kecil sebagai strategi penting untuk mengatasi peningkatan efek perubahan iklim dan sebagai jalan ke depan untuk ketahanan pangan di masa depan.

Kami ingin membuat model potensial yang dapat dicoba oleh masyrakat sembari kami terus berkegiatan dengan komunitas di desa, wilayah dan sekitarnya. Proyek kami di Indonesia untuk Indonesia. Praktik pengajaran kami beralih kembali ke produksi kebun hutan dan pertanian terpadu melalui permakultur dan prinsip-prinsip pertanian alami. Kami menghormati dan menggabungkan metode tradisional dalam semua yang kami lakukan.

Creating resilience

Environmental Impact

Make and build with eco-bricks – the solution to our plastic problem on site. Turn green waste into food for the animals and compost for growing our food – the solution is managing green waste for a productive outcome. Build infrastructure, fences and retainers with recycled car tyres -the solution is turning toxic waste into a useful and safe purpose. 

Social impact

Working in partnership with many groups with an education and learning focus integrating shared knowledge both traditional and global. Teaching English and creative exploration subjects to locals and those from afar. Creating links to traditional, local and international groups and projects.

Sustainable Farming

Applying organic farming practices to productive food growing and animal raising. Natural farming and permaculture influences all that we do. The soil, the compost, the water, the clean, chemical free processes and all the associated protections and systems. Organic farming becomes organic life for us. 

Innovative Learning

Our Green-Ed centre offers workshops, tours, specially tailored courses and connecting with nature. Hands, Head, Heart learning in nature you can apply to your garden, kitchen, courtyard, patio or windowbox. Try our hands-on learning even if you can’t come to the farm in person.
