Considered one of the best farms in El Salvador, is located in the base of Santa Ana Volcano, which in 2006 has an eruption. The eruption threw a great amount of ashes that were transformed into natural fertilizer. The ashes are highly acid and combined with any other fertilizer might create an intoxication to the plant and kill it. Since the eruption 8 years ago, the farm is being worked and certified 100% organic. Also for its social and environmental conditions it’s been certified as Rainforest.
