Finca San Fransisco Tecuamburro was founded by Mr. Daniel Barillas Hessarte along with his wife Mrs. Matilde Arrollo de Barillas. When Mr. Barillas passed away, his sons Guillermo Barillas Arrollo and Haroldo Barillas Arrollo inherited the farm. After a few years, Haroldo sold his half, and only Guillermo kept his part of the land and has kept it ever since. The farm has been managed by Mr. Sergio Barillas, son of Guillermo for over 15 years.
