Photo source: Beacon Farms is changing lives in Cayman
After spending more than 40 years in the Cayman Islands, father and son Granger and Scott Haugh are giving back to the community with which they have long connected. They’re doing so by offering a second chance to those Caymanians willing to get their hands dirty by providing Cayman with ‘test kitchen’ based in agriculture. The 34-acre Beacon Farm is implementing and testing new crops and machinery for production of locally grown produce as well as sharing their findings in the daily agriculture of the islands. The idea is based in models of recovery to change the lives of the people they employ, pay respect to tradition and the innovation of fellow farmers and the industry, and even find alternative ways to help with nuisances like sargassum.
