Kathryn Laurain of Panajachel is organizing delivery of full and half baskets of organic vegetables from Caoba Farms near Antigua. Please read her message below and contact her if you are interested in getting in on this great offer. Kathryn: 3076-7162
Happy new year!
At the end of last year, a few of us ordered baskets of organic produce from Caoba Farms (they have a facebook page). It was a trial run to have a look at the quality, see how it arrived, and how much it cost to get it here from Antigua.
We were all very pleased with the produce, it was beautiful, super fresh and high quality. The cost for delivery was too high, using a shuttle to deliver. I can use the chicken bus for half the cost which, I think will be acceptable to everyone, and it will come directly here from Antigua, early in the morning. If you know of anyone who makes a regular trip from Antigua to here and has a large enough vehicle and would like to have help with gas, please let me know.
A half basket included: Salad mix, arugula, spinach, (ready to eat, cleaned) turnips w/usable greens, pak choy, really sweet little red carrots, fennel bulb, cilantro, oregano, dill, mint, lemons and limes and swiss chard. A full basket was double the amount. A half cost Q80 and a whole is Q150. Using the shuttle added Q20 to the cost of a half basket and Q40 for the whole. If we use the chicken bus it will be Q10 and Q20 added for delivery.
I am thinking to start making an order every other week. The produce available will of course change, and they seem flexible about what can go in the baskets, like many of us have lettuce coming in our gardens right now so will not be needing much. Easy and clear preferences like that would not be a problem, however I am not going to let it get out of hand with too many specifics.
So please let me know if you want to take part in getting great organic produce right here in Pana.
