Joel is a K’iche’ Mayan farmer from Aguacate Village, Toledo.
We are so grateful and lucky to have him as part of our farming family! We asked him a few questions so you can get to know him better!
How long have you been farming for?
I have been farming since I was eleven years old. I used to grow white corn and other plants.
What is your favourite vegetable to grow?
I love to grow sweet peppers.
Why do you love growing organically?
Because it is healthier.
If you have other questions you'd like us to ask, send us an email. We believe in full transparency, so you can see who grows your food and that they are working in ethical conditions. We also want to share the stories of our workers because their voices matter.
