The superior quality and unique flavors of LAFAZA’s premium Bourbon vanilla beans starts with the expertise and dedication of individual farmers. Meet Martin, a third generation Malagasy vanilla farmer and co-op leader from the small coastal village of Imorona.

Martin and his family grow their vanilla organically using agro-forestry methods that deliver environmental benefits to the land while helping protect their crops, and thus the family’s livelihood, against damage caused by the severe tropical storms that frequently threaten the island. Martin and the over 250 individual farmers we work with take immense pride in growing the all natural vanilla that LAFAZA brings to you.
