Acerca de Huerto María / About Huerto María
Our brand has its origins with the efforts of an 8 year old girl who had to leave school to work in the field. Integrated to the arduous and hard harvest work like many other women, she, dedicated all her efforts to improve her family situation. Motivated by the dedication of those women, who, like her, endured endless days and hours until the extreme tiredness of carrying their children in their blankets to avoid stopping the cultivation process.
Like that, this girl understood the value and love that these women had for their ancestral cultures. This little girl grew up, and many years after, she decided to create ULEVA SAC, arising from a combination of her first name and her family name. The purpose of this community of producers was to change her people’s mentality regarding their vision of women demonstrating the value of their work and preserving their harvest traditions.
Years after, Huerto Maria was born thanks to this community: a brand which underlines the strength, courage and love of every women of this community, located in Tingo Maria– Huánuco– Peru.
