Read this comprehensive overview of Tahiti limes including markets, regions of productions, best practices, forecasts, and more. The data contained in this report is the foundation of our Valle Verde lime operation.
La Frontera is a breathtaking Tahiti lime farm located in the spectacular Valle del Cauca region of Colombia. This 103-cuadra (66-hectare) property consists of 22,542 trees ranging from two months to three years in age, and the limes currently being produced are achieving an exceptional export quality rating of over 75%. These limes are sold directly to Farmfolio’s Valle Verde lime packhouse, an established relationship that is one of the key components of the opportunity. This fixed price offset agreement helps create consistent and considerable returns for La Frontera farmland owners.
La Frontera is strategically located along one of the region’s major highways, features a well-developed internal infrastructure, and is located in an area considered prime farm real estate. Nestled in the emerald foothills of the Andes, Valle del Cauca is one of Colombia’s most productive agricultural regions. Known for its rolling hills and rich farming tradition, Valle del Cauca’s temperate climate is ideal for growing a wide variety of crops, especially Tahiti lime. Often considered a hidden gem by tourists, this region is set for further growth from Colombia’s ongoing 4G and 5G infrastructure investment projects, which will connect the region to the country’s coastal ports with new highways and roads.
Over time we’ve been tracking the farm’s export quality fruit, agricultural methods, and other factors, and the data shows that the farm is led by a highly efficient management team producing unrivaled lime quality using the best agriculture technology paired with generational knowledge of best practices.
One of the key data points in determining farm quality is the percentage of product that is considered export quality. The current owner of the La Frontera farm has consistently achieved an export quality rating exceeding 75% on La Frontera itself and on other farmland owned in the surrounding area.
