As a shining star of the Caribbean and known as "La Isla del Encanto", which means "The Island of Enchantment", Puerto Rico is composed of 110 miles long x 35 miles wide, is surrounded by mountains, rain forest, karst areas, arid desert regions, caves, rivers, beaches and oceans. With a warm and tropical climate we describe our agriculture in two systems: one of very small farms mainly producing subsistence commodities and another of large farms producing dairy milk, vegetables, and fruit products. We have approximately 15, 745 farms; most of them composed of 10 acres or less.
