About.

Completely off the grid, Finca el Porvenir is an extensive agroforestry and silvypasture farm on 500 hectares. We have replanted more than 150 000 hardwood trees and grow our organic hairloom cacao, cardamom and coffee  below. We strive to reproduce and disseminate 100% criollio cacaos which are almost extinct but have better qualities.
We produce our own hydroelectricity from the water of our springs and use it to power our stone grinders to produce DALILEO CHOCOLAT which we are starting to distribute to finance our reforestation efforts. 

All our animals roam free. We raise pigs, ducks, cows, a type of sheep, chicken and tilapia in different systems.
We offer permaculture and agroforestry hands on intensives. We have pools and waterfalls and an endless variety of producing fruit trees. We raise bees and produce indigo natural tints from which we also derive fertiliser. This is a real productive farm.
