The Honourable Premier, Mr. Wayne Panton Tours Beacon Farms
Mar 17, 2022
We were so excited and pleased to be visited by our Premier, the Honorable Wayne Panton! He arrived with his Chief of Strategy, Pilar Bush and their Press Secretary, Tammie Chisolm.
The small group was escorted around Beacon Farms as they were given an overview of what we have accomplished and our vision for the future of our Charity.
Mr. Panton was able to see where we process our produce into various products, the advancement we have made in our field development, our composting facility, tobacco drying barn, plant nursery, and our smaller research gardens which will hold future experimental crops.
Of much interest was the discussion of food security and mechanized field preparation. Beacon Farms is exploring these areas with the addition of our Valentini Rock Tiller and now, equipment that will mechanize bed formation, irrigation & ground cover installation, and seed/seedling planting.
Mr. Panton and Ms. Bush came away from our short tour with a good introduction to what we are doing at Beacon Farms as well as small goodie bags with Beacon Farms products as a token of our appreciation!
FEATURED BEACON FARMS FRIEND
Mr. John Paul Hurlston and his company, JP Trades Electrical, deserve our enthusiastic thanks as they continue to be a great friend of Beacon Farms!
Mr. Hurlston and his team come out to help us with electrical problems on the farm, making the drive all the way out to North Side, even in emergencies with very little advanced notice.
Thank You JP Trades Electrical for keeping us going and providing excellent electricians to handle some rather complicated matters.
MR. HURLSTON AND CREW
Beacon Farms was incorporated on the 8th of March, 2017 as a Non-Profit Organization. The goal of the Organization is to assist Caymanians in recovery from substance abuse in re-entering the workforce.

As well as expanding our capabilities as a farm, the technology and machinery we use provides our staff with training and experience in the use of 21st century agricultural equipment.
To that end, we are constantly looking to partner with experts in the field of agriculture and closely related industries to make our farm that much more unique.
