    The Farm is located in Cabuya in the heart of Panama.. Cabuya is a small picturesque village about 2 hours from Panama City in the Mountains. Established at 1906, it is a peaceful place with homes painted in vibrant colors..

    We are a unique adventure and travel experience. Our farm started out of the planting local, organically grown vegetables like tomatos, various roots, corn, citruses, beans, coffee and raising chickens and home stead Tilapia.

    We realized we need helpers to make this really happen because we travel many times during the year between Hawaii and Panama to take care of our real estate businesses.

    We are in needs of green thumb enthusiasts and people with a sustainability vision and understanding of the farm to table concept. We are planning to use our vegetables and chickens and tilapias at our own restaurant which we are planning to open in the future at our small hotel nearby.

    You can learn how to make traditional hand poured sugar candies and make your own wrapped corn breads while you experience workings of an organic farm and be a part of the change.

    We can provide a place to stay for maximum 10 people in exchange for help.


    We need experienced eco farmers and builders who can help to develop our land for sustainability and help us with the farm to table concept. We are building a facility for visitors who will come to see our great land,

    Come and help us raising ecological chickens for sale to the local communities and cultivating the land for sustainability.

    In the future we are planning to start an eco restaurant with a farm to the table concept catering our own homegrown vegetables by offering a selection of vegetarian dishes to locals and tourists.

    We are looking for a farm to table planner who can help us to figure out how we can use all of our resources wisely and proficiently to feed our chickens, to harvest our vegetables and create a healthy cycles of self sustainability.

    We just started to sell our chickens to the locals, who are looking for a better tasting, homestead chickens instead of buying it at the supermarkets. It is a rapidly growing interest and we have to keep up with the orders now on a weekly basis.

    The farm in Cabuya should provide the supplies and ingredients for catering to our facilities and to our community in Cocle

    It is an ever developing concept in the making and we are welcome great ideas and people who are interested making the change.
