    Workaway note: Please contact this host in Spanish

    Our company is located in the Municipality of Cepitá, Santander, Colombia. At the moment we are dedicated to the production and commercialization of quails' eggs, but the goal of the company is to help restore the economy of the people, to enable family farmers to produce organic products and help them market these products but pay them a good price and avoiding intermediaries. On the farm there are avocados, oranges, mangoes and a shed for the quails. We planned to build a garage to produce bio-gas and energy from our pigs.

    La empresa que tenemos está ubicada en el Municipio de Cepitá, Santander, Colombia. En el momento nos dedicamos a la producción y comercialización de huevos de codorniz, pero el objetivo de la empresa es ayudar a recuperar la economía del pueblo, a capacitar a las familias agricultoras en producir productos orgánicos y ayudarles a comercializar estos productos pero pagándoselos a un buen precio y evitando intermediarios. En la finca hay aguacates, naranjos, mangos y está el galpón de las codornices. Estamos en proyecto de poner una cochera para cerdos, para producir biogás y energía.
