It makes sense to care about the area in which you live and work. We have taken the opportunity to make a difference in of our community over the last 60 years. At our farm in Agua Dulce, we have on-site agronomists visit each month to provide a space for our neighboring farmers to come and learn. Some travel a few minutes to get to FVH and some travel for many hours, but all of the farmers have a focus to improve their coffee quality.

Each year after harvest, Edwin A. Martinez leads a small group of doctors and veterinarians up into the remote highlands of Huehuetenango. In this part of the world a visit from a veterinarian can have just as much (if not more) positive impact as a surgeon.
