F is for Farms in Cuba

FFarming is important to Cuba. If you drive through the countryside, you will see farms for sugarcane, mangoes, bananas and many other crops.  You will also see lots of goats, cows and chickens. In some cases, Cuban farmers use oxen or horses to pull carts and assist their work. While the state owns a majority of Cuban farms, cooperatives own of some farms. Cooperatives are  groups of families who pool their resources and farm the land together. The land is very lush and green — beautiful.
