Visiting Vinales, in the western part of Cuba more precisely in the province of Pinar del Rio, one usually comes across the typical farmer of the valley. Dressed in the simplest apparels with his boots, shirt, shorts and straw hat, the farmer remains forever ready to get through a lot of work from daybreak to dusk. Always busy preparing the land by oxen-ploughing, sowing, finding the right crop’s time and harvesting, the peasant in the hot tropical sun is tired and satisfied after a day’s work in the fields. The natural processes used in the plantation by using organic or semi organic fertilizers, soil conservation, crop rotation and green manure vulgarized after the collapse of the western block as well the traditional methods applied have made Vinales a valley of abundance. Today, Vinales is synonymous of a successful agriculture and behind this lays the farmer. The province harbours the following crops; tobacco, sugar, coffee, vegetable and fruits growing over the different shades of red fertile soil. Descendants of the Canary Islands farmers who came to Cuba two centuries back, the descendants of the Guanatabajey Amerindians or of slaves descents all of whom form nowadays the population of the Cuba, the farmers have inherited their ancestor’s patience and knowledge.
