From Iconowatch, I found the site for Nudo, an Italian company that allows you to “adopt” an olive tree for a year. They press the oil from the tree (along with 50 of it’s neighbors so they can do a full press), and send you the produce. This is an interesting mix of conservation, culture, and foodie-ism. Certainly, a lot of value in many gourmet products is a connection to the agriculture of another region, and this sounds like a way to get more directly linked to the whole process from dirt-to-plate.
The question is, would people adopt a cacao tree? I can see a spectrum of products here from a fully custom mix of beans to beans from a single tree.
