Meet the Farmers

The average age of Grenada’s 5,000 cocoa farmers is about 59 years. Younger generations are leaving the farms for the island’s few cities or emigrating in search of a livable income. Aiding the farmer with their land, their equipment, and better nurseries (and in turn, better prices for their beans) can give new generations of farmers a reason to stay in place, protecting this rare and unusually rich tropical ecosystem that might otherwise be logged, grazed or sold for resort development.
