In 1987 our mission was to create a model of sustainable, commercial, organic farming working in harmony with the rainforest. Studying and practicing Natural Farming and Permaculture/agro-forestry principles, we have come a long way from those early plantings of tropical root crops.
Tropical yams and then black pepper were the first products we were able to take to the farmers' market while we waited on our highly diversified orchard plantings to come into production.
Our mission remains the same, but with 30 years of experience under our belt, we now consider ourselves, above all else, soil farmers, working to enrich the good earth beneath our feet.
Finca la Isla works as a diversified system, integrating tree crops, a fruit tree and ornamental plant nursery, medicinals, fodder and livestock (chicken and quail).
