Pinar Del Rio is a small but busy town in which the Red Star and portraits of Che Guevara are displayed for all to see. In the old town, colourful houses with beautiful pillared corridors demonstrate the former wealth of the country’s independent tobacco growers. Time means little here. While observing life on the streets, one begins to think in the same relaxed tempo of the leisurely-smoked cigars. A visit to a tobacco factory is a must. Cuba’s cigars are world famous. Together with sugar, tobacco is the country’s most important export. The oldest geological formation in Cuba are the Mogotes, well-weathered limestone peaks which, supported by pillars, once covered a large complex of caves. Over many decades, subterranean rivers flooded the earth below and thus created these gigantic grottos. On seven manmade islands in the centre of the Cienaga De Zapata National Park, is the Indian village of Guama. This swampy nature reserve with its dense mangrove forest vegetation offers an ideal sanctuary for many rare water birds. No Cuban town has changed as little in two hundred years than that of Trinidad. In the 18th century, the city experienced great wealth and recognition due to the cultivation of sugar cane and the luxurious palaces and villas of the sugar barons still leave their mark on the city.

This year was no exception and guests attending the number-one international gathering on premium cigars on the face of the earth took a closer look at tobacco as they learned how the leaves that are eventually rolled into habanos -a product that has become a tangible testimony of Cuban culture- are born in the first place.

However, the visit allowed guests to see how the crop is harvested and learn straight from the planters’ mouths on tobacco production in that special neck of the woods. This time around, the adventurous attendees visited the Cooperativa de Créditos y Servivios (CCS) V Congreso del Partido, run by producer Francisco Lazo Díaz in San Juan y Martínez. This cooperative is tasked with harvesting shade-grown tobacco whose wrappers are used in the making of habanos. According to what several tobacco growers said, 2017 has been off to a great start, with great weather conditions for the crop, a situation that bodes well for this year’s outputs and is music to the ears of those who plan on attending habano festivals in coming years, and of course, for whoever loves the world’s top-of-the-line cigars.

Summer 2009" 11. Travelling shot from ox to tractor plowing field 12. Tilt down from passing tractor to plow being pulled 13. Zoom in tractor leaving filed followed by oxen STORYLINE Can an ox be a hero of the Cuban Revolution? Omar Andalio thinks so. The 37-year-old farmer with a state-run cooperative is proud of the two government-owned beasts he is coaxing through a sugarcane field in western Cuba. For reasons no one can remember, the plumper one is named Caramel, even though he's white, and his caramel-hued field-mate is known as Lightweight _ never mind that he's nearly 1,000 pounds. In China, 2009 is the Year of the Ox. The animal could be in for a big year in Cuba too, if Raul Castro has his way. "Like President Raul Castro said in his speech, we have to make an offensive attack with our oxen and we need to save. We are in a time when saving is necessary. And that's what we're doing, we're going on the offensive with the oxen" Andalio says. As the cash-strapped government looks to slash deficits and pay down debt, the president has said a yoke of oxen can often do the same work as gas-guzzling farming equipment. In an address before parliament, Castro said officials plan to expand a pilot program promoting small-scale farming which began last year. "For this program we should forget about tractors and fuel, even if we had enough. The idea is to work basically with oxen," he said. "An increasing number of growers have been doing exactly this with excellent results." Cuba gets nearly 100,000 free barrels of oil a day from Venezuela, but it can't afford to import more and thus has begun an aggressive campaign to conserve crude. "The whole topic of fuel is chaotic now and we are moving forward with Oxen," says Andalio, wearing a sweat-stained straw hat and nearly knee-length, black-rubber boots. He and 300 other state employees grow cane, low-quality tobacco, sweet potatoes and bananas in San Diego de los Banos, a town 95 miles (150 kilometers) west of Havana with stunning views of limestone mountains in the distance. The cooperative has 24 oxen and eight tractors _ two of which are clawing through nearby terrain cooked hard by a recent drought. Each tractor can do the work of five teams of oxen, according to Andalio Aid from Venezuela and governmental reforms have revived Cuba's economy, and this summer's austerity programs pale in comparison to the sacrifices of the 1990s.

Since 1996 they have produced fruits, vegetables, seeds, herbs, wool, eggs, lamb and people. Lauded as one of the best examples of a small productive Biodynamic and Permaculture farm in the northwest, they make extensive use of Keyline pond water harvesting and distribution systems, multi-species perennial polycultures, rotational grazing and other whole systems approaches. Seven Seeds helps to mentor new farmers through internships, mentoring and workshops, working with several non-profits to do so. The farm has produced certified organic vegetable, flower and herb seeds for over a dozen national scale seed companies and in 2009 they began Siskiyou Seeds, a bioregional retail organic seed company operated from the home farm. Founder Don Tipping is passionate about helping to advance the development of open pollinated organic seed through breeding, selection and education. Don helped to found the Siskiyou Sustainable Cooperative CSA, a seed equipment co-op, the Seed Academy training and the Family Farmers Seed Cooperative, a seed grower, marketing and distribution cooperative comprised of 10 western organic farms. Guido Frosini True Grass Farms, Valley Ford, CA This land has been in Guido's family since 1867 and it’s that same test of time that now lies at the heart of what they do at True Grass Farms. The scope of that legacy has since expanded, reaching beyond four generations to inherit an even older wisdom: by nurturing unique natural cycles, we in turn are nurtured by the land—an understanding that reveals itself in the quality of the products as well as in the sustainability of their operation. Located three miles east of the Pacific coast in northwestern Marin county, they are part of the bioregional food source. He grows grass. The farm produces grass-fed and finished beef, pastured Guinea and Blackworth hogs, as well as cage-free heritage fowl and eggs. Pioneering a new wave of stewardship, Guido works the land by working with it, embracing a process of rotational grazing that balances the natural cycles of soil and grass with the movement of cattle, pigs and all of us whose futures depend upon restoring a healthier and more sustainable relationship with our food. Joe, Doug and Anthony Perry JE Perry Farms, Fremont, CA. The three generations of Perry’s are the last vegetable farmers on the tidal mudflats of the Southern end of the San Francisco Bay. Once a major vegetable and flower region, now overtaken by housing and industry, the mild climate and rich soils produce vibrant crops. The Perry’s farm 91 acres of organic lettuce, cauliflower, pumpkins, corn, strawberries, flowers and much more. They sell via a farmstand, wholesale primarily through Veritable Vegetable and direct to stores, and at farmers markets. They operate a popular pumpkin patch for school childrens’ field trips on the land, that is leased from the East Bay Regional Parks Ardenwood Reserve. Joe Perry began farming vegetables full time in Fremont at age 13 in the 1940s. He went organic in 1990. Son Doug, now 60, and President of the Alameda County Farm Bureau, returned to the farm decades ago, after a stint in industry. Grandson Anthony, 24, joined the farm full time 3 years ago. Let’s celebrate multi-generational urban farmers!
