The first full day for our leadership group started with a beautiful breezy day seeing the green countryside on our way to LucObidos. The sour cherry lequeur is is ran by Kristina and her son, Bernado, while her husband is hands on at the farm. They have learned to market their product by specializing it to each country that they ship to. Bernado showed us the different stages the liqueur is in the vasts. They have created chocolates that contain the liqueur. The packaging is done a lot by hand right in the factory.
Virgil Merano and Anna his wife hosted the leadership group for a taste of his produce for lunch after a tour of the olive trees. Virgil is eager to share why it is important to maintain his organic produce and provide opportunities to learn and be in the ag industry.
