The Santa Isabel farm was founded in 1899 in Santa Rosa Guatemala by Federico and Isabel Keller. In 2005, their grandsons Alex and Martin transitioned the farm to operate with 100% organic farming. They compost the pulp and waste from the mill for fertilizer, use recycled water for processing and have a canal planted with lilies to naturally treat the mill’s waste-water.

To fight plant disease, the farm has experimented with heartier and more disease-resistent varieties for the future of their farm. The Santa Isabel farm has pursued innovative and creative new avenues for sustainable and organic agriculture.

60% of the farm is planted with coffee under the native forest cover, while the remaining land is a protected nature preserve. The farm is dedicated to sustainable agriculture and sustainable community. The Kellers maintain a school, provide a health clinic and three meals a day for up to 1800 workers, and maintain the roads and bridges in their community.
