In addition to being a leader in coffee production, the Fazenda Santana is the host to one of the oldest and most traditional festivals in the region, the Festa de Sant’Ana. For over 100 years, a celebration has been held in late July in honor of the farm’s namesake, St. Ana.
Locals and tourists convene on the farm for a celebration that begins with an early morning religious mass at the chapel and continues through the day with a religious procession, cavalry that makes the pilgrimage from miles away to the festival site , and auctions, games, food stalls, and a live music concert.
The region is rich in mineral water. The farm has mineral water tanks designed to supply irrigated agricultural activities from wells and natural sources throughout the year.
Local vendors and suppliers are used for sourcing and it is one of the farm’s main objectives to positively increase the local footprint and sustain the local economy.
The farm is en route to producing their first organic beans by 2021. Stay tuned!
