In focus: Colombian smallholders

I'm currently in Colombia working on a collaborative project with small coffee and cocoa sourcing companies. The trip has put me back in one of my favorite environments - small farms. The houses, the gardens, the mountainous backdrops - Colombian farms are often breathtakingly beautiful.

While today's post will be brief, stay tuned for upcoming posts giving a glimpse into who some of these farmers are, and what they do from day to day.

The first post, which I'll try to get out later this week, will talk a bit about a woman who I'll call Elena, who runs her own cocoa farm while raising three children alone.

Stay tuned!
