  • Description

    Description

    My name is Eric, my wife Crisoire and we own farmland in the Dominican Republic. We grow cocoa trees and other tropical fruits. We are chocolate makers and chocolatiers under our own brand. We decided 10-years ago to vertically integrate our cocoa beans into our own chocolate brand. As part of our Corporate Social Responsibility, we would love to host guests to learn about our vertical integration and hopefully gain feedback on ways that we can improve our social stance while ensuring an equitable supply chain. Workawayers will enjoy staying at our home in Hato Mayor Del Rey, Dominican Republic. Activities include working on the farm, harvesting numerous crops, cultivating new trees, interacting with farmers, and cultural immersion.

    Key expertise needed is someone who has worked with Aquaponics and/or Hydroponics.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: Anyone wishing to join us during the months of June - October, we will be harvesting tons of mangos. We will need assistance in peeling de-massing the mango flesh as we freeze them and sell to local factories.
