sustainable and low impact
We are Organic and Eco-Friendly
Our farm is eco-friendly and we hold a great respect for the environment. Our goal is to be as sustainable and low impact as possible. For this reason, we use solar power and we catch all of our water from the rain. We have a natural spring as a backup water source for the dry months. We recycle plastic, aluminum, cardboard and glass on-site, and all of our compost is turned into organic waste which we use as soil.
cow pasture turned rainforest
We are also a Reforestation Project!
Our farm was once a sprawling cow pasture with little vegetation or rainforest growth aside from a few coconut and cacao trees. After buying the land in 2002, we began to plant hundreds of timber and tropical fruit trees. In fact, almost all of the vegetation you see when you visit us was planted by us!
Our Bocas del Toro Chocolate Tour
"Best. Tour. Ever."
Our “Bocas del Toro Chocolate Tour,” takes you on a circuit around our four hectare permaculture and chocolate farm where we show and explain everything from the forest and fauna, medicinal plants and wildlife, as well as our cacao and coffee plantations. (Indeed, our Chocolate Tour is about a lot more than just chocolate!)
Cacao is one of our main productions and at the end of the tour we demonstrate the process from bean to powder. You will get to taste and try it at every stage, ending in when it becomes chocolate with the addition of sugar. The chance to see animals is high as we have an array in the garden including the famous Isla Bastimentos red frog, white faced Capuchin monkeys, sloths, snakes, spiders, leaf cutter ants, armadillos, red eyed tree frogs (sleeping!), as well as many insects and birds!
After the tour, a farm-fresh lunch is served that incorporates many of the plants and fruits you just saw and learned about! Enjoy this healthy and organic meal knowing exactly where it all came from!
