I just toured Blancaneaux's 3.5-acre organic vegetable garden in the Mountain Pine Ridge yesterday. Impressive operation with 8 full-time employees, terraced farming, rotating crops -- supplies the restaurant at Blancaneaux and Turtle Inn.

The Ka'ana Resort, just west of San Ignacio, which will be opening soon, also promises a totally organic garden to supply their kitchen, as the manager told me horror stories of whiffing the chemicals on market day in San Ignacio when the vegetable trucks open their doors.
