Wanted to share some video clips from our 2013 PR trip. These are mainly just some snippets of conversations, nothing full length. It was difficult trying to pick up conversations, search for fruit, not bust my butt on the terrain, and keeping away from anthills all at the same time!
Taking a break in the shade, Ian gives us some history of the farm. As you can see, it was incredibly hot and humid. Climbing up the steep terrain didn't help either. All part of the adventure!
Ian explaining how his original plan was to grow coffee. There is a little interruption about 3/4 of the way thru. While trying to walk and film at the same time, I walked into a branch covered in wasps nests.
This video is at Ian Crown's farm later in the week. We had a very big crowd this day. Besides our group, there were some folks from Miami Rare Fruit Group as well as friends and neighbor's of Ian, Richard Campbell, and even a couple of guys from the USDA. Here Ian is giving a little background on his farm.

Here's Felipe. So filled with knowledge and experience. It's a joy just to stand back and listen to him. We've been walking his farm for the past 5 years and it seems we continue to always find something new.
