Casa Finca means farm house in Spanish. A typical Colombian estate, the term Casa Finca refers to farms which are found in cities, with land enough to harvest fruits, vegetables and raise animals. Casa Finca’s goal is to facilitate plant and herbal medicine in the form of elixirs, tonics, tinctures, smoothies, juices, organic whole-foods and more.. Our offerings are carefully crafted to bring healing properties for the body, mind and spirit. Highlighting locally sourced/home grown medicinal plants, herbs, ethically sourced Amazonian superfoods, Ayurvedic influences and an organic pantry of farm to table ingredients. In creating awareness for our community through plant medicine, food and holistic living, we practice sustainable values in everything we do. From growing most of the herbs we provide for our community to acquiring the rest of our ingredients from local farmers, and indigenous communities that lovingly share their medicine. We educate people in the importance of plastic reduction, and encourage composting and understanding the importance of mindfulness in the things we consume.

Hi Everyone! I'm Suanny Upegui, Founder of Casa Finca. I'm super excited to share and connect to keep our healing path alive.
I was born in Colombia, raised in the mountains and some years of my childhood in the Amazon. When I was 12 years of age I had to move to the Inited States running away from civil war. The experience of growing fast and being placed in a country that I needed to fit in, forced me into putting my culture to the side, the love for nature and the innocence that at that time was the only connection to the spirit world I had. Although always seeing the magical spirit world and thinking it was the normal everyday life, fitting in a new country and new schools was too difficult to nurture that skill. Gratefully, after so much love for what some of our collective considers weird I was able to work on my healing process/spiritual growth to remind my self of who I truly am, the power, light and oneness of this beautiful realm. It is clear to me that my path is to share my gifts, activate and share my ancestral wisdom, intuitive gifts and magical creations to cultivate higher levels of frequency wherever possible and help as a guide in the healing process of others.
I started in the wellness industry 13 years ago as a personal fitness trainer. As I learned about my clients and my passion for the body, mind, spirit and helping others; I decided to study the art of nutrition, cooking and energy healing through reiki, crystals, touch, visualization and holistic coaching. It is important to me to facilitate and hold space for our community. Through ritual, ceremony and the power of spirit , I been called to share this knowledge with others.
For the past years I’ve been working close to plants and remembering parts of my childhood I had to leave behind. Making a relationship with the land, the elements and the spirits of the plant world to understand the nature inside and out of us. This connection to the spirit world has help me understand all the gifts and love all this beautiful beings have to give us and the fact that they are just waiting for us to ask for help.
At the end we just need to remember that anything is possible with love and clear intentions!
