I bought the farm many years ago, the coffee crops were in bad conditions and I only picked 300 kilograms of parchment coffee during first harvest. I got a loan with the bank and I started with the improvement of the farm, planting more coffee. Thanks to my farm I could pay the education of my children. Now, we all live happy together in the farm.
We have in the farm an lot with 1500 trees of Nogal and also 1.5 hectares of native forest next to the river, this is one of our most valuable treasures. We dont throw byproducts to the river. We take care of the fauna and flora of our farm.
