We are a family farm in St. Mary, Jamaica, West Indies.  On our seaside and hillside farms, we harvest many varieties of fruit from our trees, grow plantain, bananas and vegetables to feed ourselves and our neighbors, and keep bees as sustainably as possible in top bar hives.   We live and promote economically and environmentally sustainable agriculture in one of the world’s most beautiful places!

Welcome to our farm’s website!

We have so many interesting things planned for 2015, and are very excited by the potential of our new projects.  You can visit our Blog page to read first hand accounts, written by our interns, of daily life here on our farm.  We hope you enjoy our site and visit us again for updates in the months ahead.

  1. Hello there! My name is Thomas. I am currently a farm apprentice of two years and I am greatly interested in interning on your farm! Please email me to further discuss the possibility of this!

    • Hello Thomas,

      We still have space available. Please go to the Internships page of our website and fill out an application. This helps us learn more about you and your interests. At any time, you should feel free to call me (Agape) at 876-339-1027.

      Thanks for your interest, Thomas!

  2. This has taken me far too long. After visiting Yerba Bueuna months ago, I still remember the whole 2 days in detail- it was the most vivid part of my trip to visit family in Jamaica. I felt alive and at home and I learned so much about the land, the community, and the love. Thank you.

    • Hello Jessica,
      Yes, internships will be available then. If you go to our Internships page, you will find the internship application. If you send that in, we can start the process for next summer. Looking forward to talking with you – we’ve gotten lots of great interns from pitzer! All the best, Agape Adams
