Farm Name: Greenridge Guavaberry Farm LLC
City: St. Thomas, USVI
Greenridge Guavaberry Farm is a family-owned operation dedicated to being a source of farm fresh food for the Virgin Islands community while promoting sustainable and resilient farming practices to maintain good land stewardship. With the funds, Royce plans to create a super-resilient farm operation that can withstand the rigors of tropical agriculture. The farm typically suffers tremendous loss when hurricanes occur. Royce plans to purchase a 5000-gallon tank. The new tank will automatically double their water storage capacity, increase efficiency, reduce pumping operation costs, and provide more “insurance” for crops during drought.
