Well, it has been awhile since I’ve chatted and updated. 2018 was a time of building a strong foundation here at the finca with production goals and lots and lots of planting. We have expanded the cacao planting to nearly 1200 trees, the guanabana to nearly 130 trees and our turmeric plantings to over 2000 plants.
The farm opened to tours in early 2018 and we enjoy showing off all the beauty and abundance of this magnificent and magical place. So, for cacao, we have added the recipes from the teas directly into a small vegan bar as well as or CBD oil infused chocolate bars. Our chocolate making teacher Gabrielle has entered our bars in a very prestigious competition in London and we will know in July if we win , place of show….but at least we showed up. Any accolades go strictly to Flory and her willingness to learn and create new and better ways of chocolate making. While it is in her DNA as third generation cacao farmer, she is first generation chocolate maker and we are so blessed that she loves her work!
We are now ready to open the healing home to those ready for lifestyle transformation using nature, sound, nutrition, energy work, body work and more. Please see our website for details on our retreats. We are pleased to add the gifts and talents of Adri our chef AND yoga instructor. She is a blessing to everything she touches and we are thrilled that she has said yes to Finca Divina Vida and we are certain our guests will be equally blessed by her love.
