Limonapa is a thousand acre farm located in the Chinandega region of Nicaragua. As the farm was previously a cattle grazing land, Ara Chackerian hopes to create a long-term growth plan so that farmers can get their lands back and have consistent employment. They currently have efforts in Armenia and the United States. The farm also works to grow various product including sesame, pitaya, and moringa. You can visit vimeo to see more videos.
