Ethos Farm in the Jungle opened three years ago as part of Sunset World’s “Farm to Table” sustainable agriculture program. The purpose of the 3,700 acre farm was to employ local farmers and support production and consumption of local food and plants at Sunset’s resorts. A huge success, today Ethos is increasing production to 18 different indigenous fruits and as well as highly adaptable food species such as cactus, purple passion fruit, eggplant and zucchini.
“This spring Ethos is ready to blossom with new farming practices supporting increased diversity and higher quantity yields than ever before,” said engineer Diana Cecilia Hernández, Director of Ethos Project. “For us this farm is more than just for food, we are a true community of more than 20 local employees proving that sustainable organic farming can be a reality in Quintana Roo.”
