Sugarcane

Raw Sugarcane fresh from the field
Unloading the stocks of cane at the mill.
Young Fernando, Collecting the Juice.
This family run Sugarcane business deep in the heart of formerly controlled Guerrilla countryside in Colombia, is probably using  the same method to process the Sugarcane the way it was process one hundred years ago. This family has no car or truck they just have one horse and a mule. They go out into the fields and cut the stocks of cane, load them onto their animals and then bring the sugarcane back to the mill. They then  squeeze the juice out of the stocks into a bucket, boil it and then sell it to locally buyers. All in a days work for this family that was nice enough to let me photography them.
