Meet Anabel, Alfredo, and the organic farm Tungasuk. From the farm to the table, and incredible stories in between
Cycling to TungasukThis bike tour takes a path to the west of Havana along the sea, crossing towns such as Jaimanitas, Santa Fé, and Baracoa. Later, we go inland, alternating paved streets with dust roads, in the direction to Artemisa, the province next to Havana. During the tour, you will get to know semi-rural communities that are barely in contact with travelers. Tungasuk farm is located in the municipality of Caimito. It is on top of a small hill, near an artificial lake, and about 800 meters away from the highway.
What we will do on the farmOn the farm we are awaited with water, coffee, and fresh juices made of collected fruits. The shade on the farm is abundant, so there will be where to rest after the trip. Later, the hosts will gladly give us a tour on the farm. Meanwhile, you will be able to listen to their incredible story. What brought them from Paris to this country? Why investing their lives and saves in the Farm Tungasuk? Also, how they apply their background traditions, together with the local knowledge, in order to improve the results of the products they grow. Swimming in the lake is also possible, as an extra activity for those who prefer it.
Lunch time, great time!Finally, we will have a delicious lunch. Alfredo and Anabel, among many things, are excellent cooks. You will not taste something similar at all in Cuba. The combination of recipes from their countries with national ingredients results in an explosion of unique flavors. Anabel’s certification as Chef from the prestigious French institute Ferrandi, could also explain this. Tungasuk farm is definitely an excellent example of tenacity and passion that you will not forget. To learn more about this beautiful family project, visit www.tungasuk.com.
