Cooking From Harvest is an interactive farm to table and agroecology experience hosted at Finca Concepción in Juncos, just a 40 minutes drive from san Juan. We will greet you with light refreshments and will show you around. We will share historic facts about the town of Juncos and the location, and will tell you about the farm project in progress and what we will be doing during your visit. Usually, you will engage in some light farming activity which could include preparing the soil, planting or harvesting some of the produce we will use to cook with when in harvest. Other products and ingredients are locally sourced or artisanal as much as possible. We will cook delicious puertorican specialties and will sit to enjoy our meal and the beautiful scenery of El Yunque mountains. The farm to table menu is based on availability of seasonal ingredients but just in case you are curious, it could include delicacies like: seasonal fruit juice, alcapurrias, arepas, tostones, mofongo, shrimp in criolla sauce, arroz con pollo, serenata de bacalao, pasteles (made with root vegetables) asopao de gandules, roasted pork loin with ajilimójili, papaya and avocado salad with homemade vinaigrette. And for desert: homemade flan, tembleque or dulce de papaya artisanal with local goat cheese. It can be hosted in English or Spanish. Overnight stay availblle through airbnb: Casa Morivivi, Jun
I'm a trained culinarian and a nutrition educator who loves to share my passion for our cuisine, culture and the resiliency of our people. Hurricane Maria was a wake up call for me and other puertorricans who realized that we import 85% of what we consume. It then became clear that we must have a local sustainable agriculture and achieve food security. As an advocate and agroecology promoter, I help propagate the importance of consuming local by introducing guests to our unique cuisine utilizing products cultivated by farmers that work hard to reestablish our agriculture. Join me in cultivating and preparing authentic puertorrican specialties the way my grandmother used to cook, incorporating local produce, herbs and spices with a pinch of LOVE!

Finca Concepción is a 30 acres pastureland reserve overlooking El Yunque owned by the same family for 4 generations which used to be a sugar cane feld for Central Juncos. At the moment, the garden plot is in transition to an agroecological kitchen garden with the purpose of obtaining food of maximum nutritional quality while respecting the environment in an ecologically sustainable way. Guests will take part of this transition during their visit.
