The coconut man 22nd July, 2016

Farmer Clarence grabs a machete and starts peeling back layers of coconut, making an indent small enough for me to poke my straw through and drink the refreshing water inside. He then hands me a wedge of coconut skin to use as a spoon and shows me how to peel out the young gel-like flesh inside.

A Caymankind welcome 18th July, 2016

As the sun sets over the Caribbean Sea, the stars appear above as we listen to reggae tunes and share adventure stories while enjoying a magnificent mango and coconut infused degustation.

Buy fresh local produce at school 14th July, 2016

Imagine doing your fruit and veg shopping when you go to pick up the kids from school – all in the one location. For busy parents who “love” doing multiple tasks at once and who wish that there were more hours in the day, this is perfect for you!

Sweet Cayman 6th July, 2016

“If you can farm in the Cayman Islands, you can farm anywhere.” At least, that’s how one prominent local farmer sees it. Three days ago we set foot on Grand Cayman, one of the three islands that make up the Cayman Islands, a British Territory bordered by Cuba, Jamaica and Mexico. A food market reliant on extreme seasons bearing rain and heat with minimal land is proving valiant in this country’s quest to become more sustainable in food production. That’s my first impression anyway.
