The Farm – an Essential Ingredient of Chan Chich Lodge
Chan Chich Lodge is dedicated to developing lasting economic stability in Northwestern Belize through agriculture. Coffee, cattle and a variety of greens are being grown organically by local people who are paid fair wages and treated with fairness and respect.
Products that are not yet grown at Gallon Jug are found in the nearest town to Chan Chich Lodge, Spanish Lookout. That way we are responsible for a very small footprint that is compensated with the conservation of 30,000 acres of forest. Guests are in for a treat when they dine with us. Thanks to our large working farm, Chan Chich sources roughly 60% of its food products from right on the premises.
Diners at our comfortable indoor/outdoor restaurant and bar will enjoy a variety of special Belizean dishes as well as an array of international flavors using the finest in local ingredients. The restaurant is located in our main lodge building surrounded by forest, garden and the buried grandeur of Mayan ruins. Guests are invited to sit back with a glass of wine, Belikin Beer, or refreshing fruit and vegetable drinks and of course the complimentary sounds of the jungle, which are a nightly indulgence.
