Nuestra visita (Our visit)
President of the Colombian Draft Horse Association for the past four years, José Restrepo was kind enough to invite us to not only his farm and home our first day in the country, but also to his business: Eclipse Flowers, located just 35 miles northeast of Bogotá. In the family for 27 years, Eclipse is one of the largest suppliers of carnations to both the . and Japan. They also ship fresh cut flowers to Canada, Eastern and Western Europe and Asia. To that end, he has 30 hectares (or 74 acres) under plastic cover and in production of flowers. Under the "Pride" label, he also grows roses on a somewhat smaller scale for these same markets.
