About the family

Erminson and his family arrived from La Gallineta, trading their life in town for this farm. Displaced and victims of the armed conflict, Erminson’s father, a passionate farmer and cattle rancher, instilled in him a love for agriculture and cocoa. Despite the challenges posed by wildlife occasionally feasting on their crops, Erminson is determined to preserve the forest and protect the fauna at all costs, making this farm a refuge of harmony between nature and his family.
