Our farm is located in the savanna of Bogota, boasting over 70 hectares of
fertile soil in production with an additional 70 hectares licensed and ready
for expansion. The bouquet facility is
housed on the farm campus.
We are a new generation of flower producers; horticulturists with
professional marketing abilities who have identified an obvious but seldom exploited
market niche: a serious commitment to
return to the business basics of listening and learning from our clients,
supporting them in good markets and in bad, and producing quality products that
our distributors as well as employees can be proud.
At the farm, we have a true respect for the land from which we live and the
employees who nurture the land and grow the product we bring to the
market. Our farm employees are provided
with a safe and healthy work environment.
