Tell us The Farm History:
This farm was inherited by my Father, and he received this legacy of his father. When my father took over the farm had almost two acres of coffee, the rest was pasture. The total area of the farm is 35 apple of land, which now are planted with coffee in its entirety. The numbers of quintals produced are about 700 quintals. I am the third generation that has this property. I inherited my dad's for 2 years, and I hope my kids inherit it.
This is the third generation who works in the farm. My Father inherited 2 years ago. My family consists of 5 members, which depends on the production methods of the farm. We know the hard work that we have to develop at the farm to be productive. In itself is a challenge for me to make produce more and more, as this is the livelihood of my family.
