Luis Ordonez is a farmer from Amatenango de la Frontera, Chiapas, a stones throw away from Huehuetenango, Guatemala. His 26 hectare farm is quite large by Mexican standards and he has been working the land for over 25 years.
He cultivates more than a dozen different varieties and is highly focused on quality. His youngest son, Meynor, helps him in all aspects of farm management. Luis said that in the past his goal in owning a farm was to simply own 40 hectares of coffee producing land. However, at present he only has half the labor he needs to manage his current acreage.
As such, his goals have changed and now he wants to open a centralized wet mill in Amatenango and buy cherry from other farmers on both sides of the Mexican/Guatemalan border.
As someone who is familiar with the exploitation of farmers by large domestic buyers, he wants to now give back to his neighbors, help stabilize their income and give them a meaningful path forward.
