Pages You Should Read

Here is a listing of the must-read posts of this blog. I've divided it up into History, - yes, we have owned this farm for almost ten years and we have a substantial amount of history here, - Chocolate, Agricultural, and Miscellaneous sections.

Making chocolate is a distinctly different enterprise from growing cacao. The care of cacao seedlings, pruning, fertilizing, etc are all fascinating subjects for me yet could be terribly boring for someone who just wants to know how we make out chocolate. And the agricultural section will also include reports on growing coffee or making sugar or just how incredibly difficult it can be to get rid of invasive (yet pretty) plants like "mani."
