Who Are We . . .
Let me Introduce Ourselves . . .
Ray is a 38 years old farmer half Italian [Palermo Sicily], half Spanish [Castilla Spain/Puerto Rico]. He grows at his grandfather’s farm in Puerto Rico. He starts working helping at the farm when he was 4 years old, and starts his own growing and research [Using His Family Systems] when he was 15 years old. He is an expert in: Permaculture, Polyculture, Vermiculture, Aquaculture, Agro-Regeneration,Agro-Forestry, Agro-Ecology, Biodynamic and Urban Farming, and an expert to put all this together in the farm to obtain the GAP Certification [Good Agriculture Practices] .Thanks to his research he makes “The Perfect Formula” for what he calls “100% Organic / Green Xtra Bio-Verma Fertilizers” like his: Black Gold Hummus Fertilizer [Vermiculture], his Dry Whole Macro Algae Hummus Fertilizer [Biodynamic Green Marine Culture], and his Miracle Feeding & Growing Teas, “Biodynamic 100% Organic / Green Pesticides”, and Many More, plus the “Production of Effective Microorganism” like: LBS, BIMOF, EMMF & Many More, all have Dual Function: “Foliar and Root Consumption”, these makes the Veggies, Herbs, Plants, Trees and Flowers grow faster, stronger, healthier, have a longer life, more productive yielding sometimes the double in a single harvest. His research includes the Production of his own: “Fish’s Food Formula”, “All Farm’s Animal Multinutritional Block & Liquid Feed”, his Own Formula for “Pelleting” his “Artisanal Concentrated Dry Feed” for Farm Animals, but for the lock of money we can’t make these formulas and sell them.
