Finca Argovia dates back to the year 1880, when a Swiss family from the canton "Argau" founded it and gave it the name by which it is known today. At the end of the 19th century it was acquired by Adolf Giesemann and today it is managed by the fourth generation of coffee growers from that same family.
Since its inception, when coffee growers had to live completely autonomously due to communication difficulties with Tapachula (3 days to reach the city), so they developed other crops in parallel with the cultivation of coffee for their own consumption.
The economic-financial crisis that affected and continues to strongly affect the cultivation of coffee, has restricted the area of cultivation and the aromatic distribution companies have established quality standards for differentiated coffees, guaranteeing the safety of the product to the final consumer.
Faced with this situation and in order to Reactivate the Productivity and Profitability of Finca Argovia, the Giesemann family saw the need to Redesign the Production System in accordance with its Vision and Mission, to give it the added value that allows it to remain in the current market.
For this reason, in 1998 the "Production of Tropical Flowers and Foliage" project was introduced, previously carrying out an Economic, Financial, Technical, Social and Environmental feasibility study and it was not until 2004 that the Eco-tourism project began. that allows the visitor to know the benefits of the cultivation of Tropical Flowers and Foliage and the cultivation of coffee, as one of the traditional products of the region that for many years has generated temporary and permanent sources of work for thousands of field workers domestic and foreign.
This diversification has led him to transform his farm into a gigantic nursery where 125 species are cultivated, including coffee trees and fruit trees, which make up a splendid place, among the smells and colors of flowers as rare as they are beautiful. Also the tourist area, for activities in the day, to stay and with this to be able to maintain what the ancestors built with great strength and ideology
The objective of the farm has always been focused on commitments with high quality and permanence over time, using techniques that not only preserve the ecosystem but also strengthen the qualities of the products, mainly coffee with a traditional polyculture arrangement.
