Between 1870 and 1950, agriculture was a big part of the island’s economy with crops such as sugarcane, coffee, plantains, bananas, and even cocoa. Unfortunately, farming has died to almost nothing over the last decade or so. We now import 80% of our food. While visiting this farm, we will be walking throughout the larger parts of the farm to learn about farming practices, from the seed to the final product.

I can remember growing up in Puerto Rico and going to my grandmother’s home/farm and seeing all of those things that she did to eat, clean, and take care of her home and farm and supply her family. Today, I will walk with you through Mr. Don Luis farm (my uncle) showing you everything there is to know, so you will come out knowing how it was growing up in Puerto Rico during the 30’s. My childhood will be brought to you in living color. When we are done at the farm I will then take you to a local restaurant, located in the mountains to eat and enjoy the food of the things that we saw and learned at the farm but also to teach you about the food we have been eating here for over a century.
