About the family

In 1986, José and his family decided to leave their home in Huila Department, driven by a friend’s recommendation to purchase the farm. While his parents were involved in the plant nursery business in Huila, José found his passion in cultivating cocoa, drawn to its ease of cultivation and the economic benefits. Today, their farm is a testament to the determination and the harmony between tradition and opportunity, with a solid commitment to forest and water conservation as essential pillars of their mission.
