Rabbit Breeding

The Recinos family's picturesque farm, Finca Nueva Armenia, sits nestled into the rocky canyons of Guatemala's Huehuetenango region. The family employs many workers, the majority of whom live in a village adjacent to the farm. With their Counter Culture Coffee Seeds grant, they started a program to breed and sell rabbits. This project provides these workers with an additional source of income and food for times of the year when there is less work needed on the farm.
