Monteadita Agroecológica emerged in 2018 due to the need to create products that really come from nature. Located in the virgin mountains of Valle Nuevo, Rancho Arriba San José de Ocoa, Monteadita Agroecológica constitutes a 100% green industry model, merging organic planting with an ecological process and a circular economy that ranges from dehydration in solar chambers, use of spring water from of the same property, electrification with renewable energy and packaging that does not affect the environment.
We are advised by the Institute of Innovation in Biotechnology (IIBI) with a social scheme that trains farmers to produce products with export quality, to meet the demand for food that provides nutrients without adding anything that alters its natural condition. Thanks to our avant-garde management, we were awarded by the USDA Export Quality program, with continuous support to continue innovating in the production of products that can satisfy the demand in the most demanding organic markets in the world.
Monteadita Agroecológica also has the advice and economic support of the Caribbean Export program, a dependency of the European Union, which provides us with advice and economic resources to increase our efficiency and ecological management.

The legend of the fountain of youth

My great-great-grandfather Juan Aníbal De León died at the age of 108 while working the land he owned. Nine children survived him and one in particular left him an orphan because he was only 9 years old. His name was Julián, whom his brothers stripped of the land that belonged to him, leaving him only a bag that supposedly contained the secret discovered 500 years ago by his ancestor, Juan Ponce De León, jealously guarded for generations.
In his innocence, Julián considered his inheritance fair and kept the alleged treasure well guarded, however, he died young, leaving his widow with a son in the womb whose name would be Abigail.
Abigail worked in a printing house from the age of 10 until her death and did not give much importance to that bag that she kept in a mahogany box, along with other family memorabilia that went to the house of her eldest son, Leandro, who was my dad.
One day looking for things, my attention was caught by that bag worn by time, inside which only what seemed to be seeds could be distinguished.
She asked me: what value could they have to be next to a silver medal, letters and photos that if they justified sentimental value?
When I asked my father he jokingly told me the story of the supposed fountain of youth.
-Can I keep it?- I asked- And he nodded without prodding.
30 years later, during a move, I found that bag again, but this time I proceeded to send it to a chemical laboratory where they finally gave me the result of its contents.
Those seeds were cocoa beans rich in magnesium, a mineral considered the fountain of youth which has allowed me to feel better at 47 than when I was 20.
