Benefits or Social Projects:
The farm is the most important source of work in the surroundings of Canton Las Duanas and has prompted many residents to begin in the cultivation of coffee, thus contributing to the generation of work in the area. We also engage in social activities with those who surround the farm by celebrating Christmas with all the children taking them toys, piñatas, and sweets.


Our goal is to continue working closely as currently done, especially focusing in improving the fertilization programs and milling process. This farm is part of the legacy in coffee knowledge of a Jorge Raúl Rivera (1938-2013). He was not only a professor at the University of El Salvador, and taught for 10 years coffee cultivation and processing, but has worked in the area since 1978. He also pioneered the establishment of the crop in the north of the country (Chalatenango).
