The Phāea Farmers Program stands as a testament to our commitment to sustainability, nurturing a harmonious relationship between our resort staff and the land they cultivate. In collaboration with skilled agronomists, our staff undergoes training in sustainable and organic farming practices, promoting responsible land use. This program not only enhances the value and quality of production but also empowers our resort to access the finest local produce for our culinary endeavors.
Embracing the philosophy that small farms can be environmental stewards, mitigating soil degradation, and preserving biodiversity, we’ve partnered with Local Food Experts to craft a unique training program. During the low season, our dedicated staff, who are also small-scale farmers, engage in hands-on learning with agronomists specializing in sustainable organic farming methods. This transformative experience equips them with the knowledge to cultivate in a manner that replenishes the environment rather than depletes it. The fruits of their labor, grown with care and consideration, find their way back to us, ensuring a fair and sustainable exchange that supports both our staff and the local ecosystem.
