Permaculture Farm

One of the most rewarding experiences at La Loma is touring the jungle farm, learning about the permaculture process, and tasting the wide variety of tropical fruits we grow here. It is educational as it is inspiring as it is delicious.

 

We strive to grow and produce the majority of the ingredients for our meals directly on site, and you'll taste the difference. 

Below is the main table at La Loma, beautifully set with fresh picks from the farm.

Organic eggs

Passionfruit

Hibiscus Flower

Tumeric

Bananas

Mature coconut

Pineapple

Pumpkin

Cacao Fruit

Cacao and Chocolate Processing 

Walk amidst thou­sands of chocol­ate (cacao) trees as you learn about this sus­tain­able trop­ical forest crop, nat­ive to the Amer­icas, which thrives under the jungle can­opy in com­post-rich soil entirely free of pesti­cides and fer­til­izers. It’s a favored food of White-faced capuchin and Western Night Mon­keys who romp through the groves feast­ing on the pods. Unsur­pris­ingly, chocol­ate works its way into many of our dishes, too.

From the vibrantly col­oured pods to the fra­grant fresh beans that are fer­men­ted, dried and roas­ted, you’ll be able to see up close the pro­cess of pro­du­cing 100% pure chocolate.
