Dear Members of La Bibioteca,
After almost 7 beautiful years we have decided that it is time for a change! We are closing the doors for the rest of the summer and for the very first time are going to have a vacation of our own in this wonderful country.
The global impact of corona has been a true challenge but in many ways has also made a lot of things clear to us. This is a time that calls for – even forces – change. A push for true sustainability and a major shift in food production and consumption is what we need.
Now more than ever it is important to rethink the way we live, grow, distribute and consume, and how these actions are our true ”vote” for change. It is with this in mind that we are entering into a next chapter of our lives.
We are going to move our efforts to a new location, for which we are currently scouting, in order to make an even bigger local impact. Here we plan to Farm, Cook and Teach for many more years to come!
We are eager to build on wonderful & inspiring relationships we have developed here on this farm and to put all our experience to use in this new adventure.
Many thanks to everyone who has helped to make this place possible. Special thanks to Lotti, Aarran, Becca, Will, Vicky, Miki, Alissa, Anna, Catherin, Anne-Catherine, Amar, Daniele, Emma, Florian, Florrie, Sophie, Sophia & many more for all the help, laughs and good advice! We could not have done it without you.
Another special big thank to you, Michaela, who really carried the message across to all our guests of what La Bibioteca represents. Always kind, radiant and classy! A major thank as well to Mimosa and Milena for all the help behind the scenes!
And of course we want to thank all of you for your support and for having made these last 7 years possible here on this beautiful place in Sant Elpidio Morico! It was a pleasure to cook for you and to see people enjoy the fruits of our labour, dining outside on the terrace under the fairy lit nut tree or indoors in our dining room.
Want to know more about our future project? Stay tuned! Don’t unsubscribe! We will send periodical updates of our journey this coming year. And of course we hope to see you there when we open our doors again!
Wishing you all a wonderful summer!
Sophie, Filipe & the Girls
