Our mission is to connect conscientious consumers in export markets with smallholder farmers in tropical countries through quality, sustainability-produced natural products.
Nicaragua is the second poorest country in the western hemisphere with almost 48% of its population living on less than $1 per day. A severe lack of jobs and education in rural areas coupled with the inability for smallholder farmers to compete in the global market has created a perpetual cycle of poverty.
Burke Agro was founded in 2007 to address the growing demand for sustainable products and the need for market linkages and technical training to engage smallholder farmers in the global market. Through hands-on technical support and an integrated farmer development program, Nicaraguan farming families are taught the importance of the sustainability of their land have been able to increase farm productivity and yearly incomes.
