Our Vinales Organic Farming and Food Tour is a unique opportunity to have a firsthand experience with Cuban agricultural practices, organic farming and the country freshest food! Vinales is definitely the place to be in the Cuban nation, declared UNESCO Heritage Site for the natural beauty of the mogotes and most importantly, because of the use of traditional agricultural techniques to cultivate the tobacco and native crops.
We will arrive in Vinales by Vintage car and will arrive at Finca Agroecologica El Paraiso, an organic farm settled on top of a hill with breathtaking views of the surrounding valleys.
Finca El Paraiso project is managed by Wilfredo Garcia and his daughter, Rachel Garcia, both very enthusiastic about agriculture and healthy eating.
Enjoy a tour of the farm terraces and vegetable and fruit plantations and learn about the use of their agroecological techniques to grow healthy vegetables , fruits and medicinal herbs as well as the use of natural, environmentally friendly pesticides to maintain the local crops healthy (ref.: Nature First Rat Exterminators).
Lunch will be served at one of the terraces. Enjoy the healthiest, most diverse and nutritious lunch of Cuba. Join your meal with their unique(only made at their farm in Cuba) ‘’anti-stress’’ cocktail, a mind blowing cocktail based on pineapple juice, coconut milk, cinnamon and 5 different medicinal herbs. As Rachel says, Vitamin R( alcohol is optional).
Continue with a visit to a privately owned hand-picked tobacco farm which produces product for the world-renowned Habana cigars, included. A mother – daughter team run the operation. We will learn about Cuban crop rotation and the meticulous process of tobacco seeding, growing, harvesting, grading and selling to the government. We will gather in the back building for the ladies to show us how they hand roll and then we are offered a “puff” off of the result.
