I received an intuitive download; a calling to build a farm project near the beach, and over time showcase, as well as practice, integral farming and produce an agro-forestry model here in southern Nicaragua. It didn't take much convincing to get my partner and friend, Jesse, to get on board. He was as pumped as I was. So, Jess and I have embarked on what we call a life-long journey of learning and community building. Our first farm sits on 25-acre northwest facing sloped land in the quiet rural town of Escamequita, 5 minutes for one of our favorite surf breaks. Score.
Now in 2017, we've invested in the study and production studying moringa leaf and seed. We've also planted 600+ cacao trees, 150+ pitayas cactus, 3000+ precious hardwoods, and acquired 6000+ valencia orange trees. We are now in the process of purchasing our first coconut palms, mango trees, avocado tree and various grasses.
Here at NewPathFarms, we've taken the necessary steps to become a model for agro economic education, data collection, and computer science infused practices. We're not quite certain what exactly this means yet. This could mean advancements in organic exports, exotic superfoods production, crowdfunded models for precious lumber reforestation, organic farming educational programs, or even new homestead models for local families; both Nicaraguan and international. Needless to say, we're very excited to see what the future has in store."

That Lands Speak
The late Steve Jobs said it best: "Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you and you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use." This statement is more true today than yesterday, and will continue to resonate with the for generations.
Our vision at NewPathFarms is to be a role model for regenerative forestry, sustainable organic farming practices in our communities, as well as to express innovation, action, and education at the core of our culture . We aspire to spread these practices to other farmers and communities.
We also believe that art, design and self-expression can, and should, radiate in all aspects of human life, including agriculture and organic farming.
"I'm convinced that anti-cancer properties will ultimately be demonstrated in moringa, in an animal and then a human model."
