Farm description

We have stared our project in 2008 in the middle of the virgin cloud forest.

Currently we have 1 hectare of vegetable garden where we have planted lettuce, beans, pea, cabbage, potatoes, sweet potatoes, and traditional foods that grow in the region such as uncucha and birraca.
We are preparing the land in order to plant and grow all types of vegetables.

As far as fruit trees go, we have planted 100 banana trees, 100 avocado trees, a few apple and peach trees, and soon we will plant many Sweet granadilla trees.

We have recently planted 100 Incense trees and 50 Cedar trees.

We are about to start honey production for our own use and for public sale as well.
We are also planning to launch a fish farming project in the near future.
