700 acres set in the Pomeroon River, Guyana. We are rehabilitating this beautiful asset - planting trees, introducing new intercrops, and establishing the Caribbean's largest coconut seedling nursery

 

50,000 new coconut trees

Home-grown Dwarf variety coconut trees, optimised for coconut water. Add wind from the Atlantic and silt from the Amazon = surely the best coconut water in the world


the caribbean's LARGEST SEEDING NURSERY

Our way of tackling the region's challenge of finding high-quality planting material: a data-driven nursery growing the next generation of coconut trees


INTERCROPS NEVER PREVIOUSLY GROWN IN GUYANA

Coconut trees provide a natural canopy for ground-crops that grow in between the palms. We are running pilot projects to discover the next big thing for Guyanese agriculture. This includes spices, herbs, superfoods (such as moringa), citrus fruits and nuts


STATE OF THE ART DRAINAGE

With the Atlantic Ocean on our right, and the Pomeroon River on our left, we are blessed with water. Our drainage systems keep water-levels in synch. We'd don't just use water for growing crops - we also use a network of canals to transport the harvest by boat


A PRESTIGIOUS ASSET FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS

We lease this asset from a Guyanese family who've curated this parcel of paradise in their family for generations. Over the course of the next 50 years we'll rehabilitate, restore and revolutionise the land. With 200m of prime river frontage and surrounded by pristine nature, we hope to open-up this part of the world to visitors in coming years


MASSIVE YIELD EXPANSION

We have doubled coconut yields since taking on the asset in 2017; at full potential (once fully planted), we expect a 9x increase in harvest to around 5.5m coconuts per annum


We are looking at coconut estates across the Caribbean: from Belize to Nicaragua, from Jamaica to Trinidad & Tobago. Aim: 10,000 acres under management by 2019
