About Us

A farm, a tour, a shop, an experience.

Agroecological Farm

We are an AGROECOLOGICAL FARM located in Río Grande, Puerto Rico.

We grow over 26+ different types of fruits, vegetables, and tobacco crops all year round.  Inside our farm, you will find different activities; each is an experience.

Learn about the different stages and crops with our guided tour around the farm, or create your own cigar in our tobacco workshop. If you’re looking for a more relaxed experience, you could skip the day activities and join us for our farm-to-table pop-up dinner nights, stay at our tiny home, or just visit the local’s favorite, our bar and cigar shop.

We believe in sustainable tourism and living.

We want to show that growing and eating healthy farm products is possible despite the many challenges (climate, social, etc.).

Our goal is that after you visit our farm, you go back home with a deeper understanding of agroecology and sustainable living. And that you know that we all play an essential role in creating a better future.
