ABOUT BEACON FARMS
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.
Besides being a welcoming workplace for people in addiction recovery, Beacon Farms hopes to become a financially and environmentally sustainable organization using innovative methods to increase our efficiency and broaden the scope of crop production in Cayman.
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.
Please browse our website to learn more about how this exceptional farm operates and helps our community; as well as the products we produce.
All proceeds go towards covering our operational costs and paying our staff.
So if you can, please donate - we would greatly appreciate it!
LIFE ON THE FARM
Life on the farm is often demanding, requiring a variety of skills, but a great working environment and very rewarding.
