About the family

Doña Nubia, from the heart of San José del Fragua, and her husband Julio Nelson, from Caramanta Antioquia, merged their destinies on a farm partly inherited and acquired. Shadows of the armed conflict marked them, but on lands once belonging to Hernando and Flerida, parents of Nubia and soulful farmers, they have renewed hope. Through a government project, cocoa flourishes as a symbol of resilience and a way of protecting forests and wildlife.
