Vita Farms consists of two locations in Guatemala. The original 50-acre nursery lies just outside the town of Villa Canales and contains 108 greenhouses in full operation. In 2017 an additional 185 acres was purchased in Jocotillo to support continued expansion. The infrastructure and new greenhouses have been rapidly taking shape at this facility. The farms are managed by Luis Pacheco and his two sons and employs more than 400 office and field personnel.
In 2021, Vita Farms and ForemostCo® finished building a tissue culture lab to strengthen its supply chain and ability to serve North American and European growers. Vita Labs is an 8,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility which has the capacity to produce 15 million plants annually when the space is fully utilized. Additional expansion is planned over the next 3-5 years to further increase capacity. Vita Labs’ key focus will be on ornamental plants, with over 110 varieties currently inhouse.
Today, the farm ships more than 200 million cuttings a year to the United States, Canada and Europe.
Vita Farms is especially known for producing the finest Groundcovers, Perennials, Succulents and Premium Foliage.
