About the family

Alexander and his family are natives of the area. His father was a teacher, and his mother a homemaker. When they arrived at the farm, cocoa was already established, but Alexander expanded it upon recognizing its profitability. Today, his interest extends beyond cultivation; he has also become a passionate advocate for forest conservation and protecting water sources on this farm.
