“When I was four, I was given a piece of land to grow my own stuff. It helped me a lot—it showed me the work behind everything. Sometimes we just expect things are simple, and we see it done rather than being involved. . .”

Farmer Profile: Mario Alvarez

I’ve been farming all my life, and for generations – my great grandparents, my grandparents, my parents, my siblings, and me, we all farmed. But the only thing we sold was the coffee. The corn, beans, and everything else was just for our own consumption and to feed our animals.
