Don Daniel and his wife Doña Teresa are the owners and they work on the farm alongside their children and attend the visitors personally.

After many years of working in banana and pineapple plantations, and after many years of suffering health problems, Don Daniel and his family have dedicated themselves and their farm to Organic, integral agriculture.

They offer a guided tour (in Spanish) of their farm and a delicious lunch. They are a truly inspiring family and this is an authentic and motivating tour! Don Daniel is also the president of the Organic Farming Association and an eco tourism Association called Grillo Verde.
