El Salvador Finca Santa Rosa Pacamara
It is a property of fifty-six hectares of extension that were reforested in the year 2000 with coniferous forest. Of the total extension twenty hectares were planted with coffee (This area is composed of four lots of five hectares each). The planted forest was used as shade for coffee, and this is its fourth year of production. The plantation was established with the mindset of producing a coffee that could win the first place in the Cup of Excellence. For this reason, a genetically improved Pacamara variety was selected to start this farm, and only the plants that showed dominance of Maragogype were planted.
Location of the farm:
Department of Chalatenango, jurisdiction of San Ignacio, Canton Santa Rosa.
Activities and cultural practices related to coffee, but oriented towards achieving the highest quality, among which may be indicated especially fertilization and harvesting.
Benefits or Social Projects:
The farm is the most important source of work in the surroundings of Canton Santa Rosa 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.
