THE CROPS ARE IN!
Fertilizer has begun to be delivered throughout the communities of Monte el Padre and El Milagro in Metapán. Cornfields are being planted. This might not seem an impressive feat for Canadians until you consider that these fields have all been planted.....by hand! No small feat indeed!

CHECKIN' IN WITH THE CHICKS
As expected, these chicks are handling the Covid pandemic like it was just another day in the Coop. Chicks in Metapan are receiving their second round of vaccinations, while as you can see in the photos, the chickens in Ahuachapan are growing like....well, like chickens! Special thank you to the farmers who continue to tend to these little guys during a life-threathening pandemic, and recent tropical storms.
"Thank you OTRAFE CANADA for supporting our farming community and thank you to the brothers who continue to work!" ~Katherine Campos
