Bolivian farmers nourishing goodness
Deep in the middle of nowhere, where the beaten track was an unpaved road a hundred miles ago, a small, teak-skinned woman is speaking in a language akin to Spanish. She talks about the wind, ostriches and other concerns for quinoa growers 13,000 feet high on the Altiplano. When Sara Flores talks, Andean Naturals listens. She is a life-seasoned quinoa farmer and recently agente of her local growers' cooperative. Every year we are the first custodians of their hand-cut harvest. We refine their quinoa and take it to market, thousands of miles away, with reverence for its raising and a fair reward for those whose dedication it personifies.
