Permaculture

At La Loma, we take pride in our commitment to sustainable living and farming practices. The Permaculture Farm is the embodiment of our dedication to nurturing the land while providing fresh, organic ingredients for our meals. As you explore our jungle farm, you’ll be immersed in the world of permaculture and its principles. A holistic approach to farming that mimics natural ecosystems to create a regenerative and self-sustaining environment.

You’ll learn how we grow a wide variety of tropical fruits and other ingredients directly on our farm. Our permaculture process not only ensures a healthier and more diverse ecosystem but also enhances the flavors and quality of the food we serve. It’s a true farm-to-table experience that will tantalize your taste buds. Check our documentary below!

CACAO & CHOCOLATE FARM

A highlight of the Permaculture Farm is our cacao groves, where thousands of cacao trees thrive in the jungle’s shade. These trees produce the beans that form the heart of the world’s favorite treat – chocolate. The cacao we cultivate is entirely free of pesticides and fertilizers, creating a sustainable and natural environment for these precious crops. Cacao processing is an art and science in itself, and you’ll have the opportunity to observe this process from start to finish. From the vibrantly colored pods to the fragrant fresh beans, you’ll see how cacao is fermented, dried, and roasted to perfection. It’s a hands-on experience that will deepen your appreciation for the craft of chocolate-making.

As you wander through the cacao groves, you’ll witness the thriving ecosystem that surrounds this beloved crop. Keep an eye out for White-faced capuchin and Western Night Monkeys, who call these groves home and feast on the cacao pods, adding to the rich biodiversity.

Step into the heart of our unique farm experience, where nature’s wonders await your discovery. From the bountiful fields of our permaculture and cacao plantations to the art of creating exquisite chocolate, join us in one of the most immersive farm experiences in the middle of Bocas del Toro!
