Tell us about your story farm?
Ojo de Agua is a small farm of 8mz located in the municipality of Dipilto in the Ojo de Agua community. I got it in 2003 and it was in a regular state planted with the caturra variety and since I am a lover of the Maracaturra variety we have planted it in its entirety with this variety, completely eliminating the caturra.
