|Finca Rio Perla, Costa Rica
Yesterday Vivian and Lauren helped to make a delivery package of a variety of cow and goat cheeses, and we also organized 300 eggs to take to the Caribbean beach-town Puerto Viejo, to the restaurant Chile Rojo. Rick also packed up some organic fudge. On the way, we dropped off some samples at Caribbean Dish restaurant outside of Siquirres. It was good to see Andrew, the owner/chef of Chile Rojo on his Wednesday "day-off" and have time to have a really good meeting. We discussed plans to start day trips from Puerto Viejo to FRP, that are promoted by Chile Rojo. Ami made some really nice promotional materials that we shared with Andrew. Thanks Ami. We also met a tour operator, Ivan, who own CostaRicaSnorkeling. Before heading back to the farm, we had a great meeting with Junior, a local guide/driver who wants to work with FRP. When Junior visited FRP, it was "love at 1st sight". Him with FRP and FRP with Junior. Back at the farm, Mike and Sarah learned how to make cheese with Vivian. Efrain, Roger and Miguel were busy improving the fencing for our expanding goat operation, and more work on the horse arena area. So, today we are all back to focusing on the gardens and the new greenhouse.
