Our approach is one where we provide alternatives and new opportunities for farmers in places such as Central and South America and the Caribbean Islands. Bourbon Bay is working to make farming profitable for both established farmers and young farmers alike by reducing the appeal of drug cartel money and replacing it with new opportunities for their farming. The opportunities that we create work to diminish the sense of disenfranchisement that so often accompanies the lives of farmers in these regions.
In Central and South America farming has been a focal point of society for generations. As such, farming is the primary source of employment and income. However, in recent decades the introduction of technological advancements, industrialized mega plantations, and local drug cartels has created a marked shift in countries such as Honduras and Colombia.
