We are a family farm in St. Mary, Jamaica, West Indies.  On our seaside and hillside farms, we make soap, harvest many varieties of fruit from our trees, grow plantain, bananas and vegetables to feed ourselves and our neighbors, hunt wild aromatic herbs for essential oil distillation 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 2023 and are very excited by the potential of our new projects.  You can visit our Intern Blogs 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.

    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.

      It’s so nice to hear from you! We’ve seen Leon a couple of times, which is always a treat. Do you have any plans to come back to JA? All the best, Agape and Kwao

    We spent a week on the farm at it was a really great experience! Everyone there is SUPER friendly 🙂 We did not go to work on the farm but rather visit Jamaica and we were not diaspointed. The host could organise lots of activities depending on the weather and is always of great help if you have any question! The farm and bedroom we were in were great too! Lots of space and great views of the ocean! We hope to go back there when we visit Jamaica again! 🙂 – Nicolas
