18 Rabbit (18 Conejos) is a collective of farms all owned by different members of the Zelaya Ontreras family. Dulce Marlen, the owner of Finca Dulce Luna, is the matriarch of the family, and the owner of 18 Rabbit exports. Her and her husband were pioneers of both organic and Biodynamic farming techniques, being intentional about naturally regenerating the soil they use for their agriculture. Members of the 18 Rabbit family have placed in the top 10 for Honudras’ Cup of Excellence, and work together to create unique fermentations and cupping experiences for their partners.

Featured Farmer

Flhor Zelaya Ontreras

Flhor is located in the Marcala, Honduras region near the pyramids of the Mayan King, 18 Rabbit (Uaxaclajuun Ub’aah K’awiil) where she manages an all-female cooperative and runs her farms biodynamically. She started her first farm when she was just five years old and was already focused on growing organically. Now, as an adult, Flhor is committed to changing the coffee culture in her area and total sustainability of the land. Her Biodynamic certification guarantees that the coffee not only has the absence of chemical pesticides and fertilizers, but that the planting of the coffee works with the ecosystem rather than disrupting it. She is in the process of submitting a grant to the Cafe Femenino Foundation, to begin an entrepreneur program for indigenous women in the nearby mountains. For her hard work, Flhor earns 300% higher wages than the Fair Trade minimum. We have come to love her in the time we have known her, and we hope you can see why.
