Experience

Highlights
  • Visit a sustainable farm in Monteverde
  • See farm animals up close and even try your hand at milking a cow
  • Learn about the benefits of sustainable farming
  • Try fresh Costa Rican cheese
Full description
Visit a sustainable farm where the animals are pasture-fed and roam freely throughout the day. Here, the farm operates without the use of pesticides or chemical based fertilizers and maintains a balance of pasturelands and forest.

Take a tour of the farm; see the cows up close and try your hand at milking. Then, step out into the garden, where you will find banana trees, the beginnings of a small scale coffee farm, and seasonal fruits and veggies under the care of the family.

As Monteverde is an area known for its rich history in dairy production, you will be invited to try fresh Costa Rican cheese. Enjoy an authentic meal featuring the freshly made cheese, hand made tortillas, along with other locally sourced and seasonably available items. You will notice a difference in the quality of the food that is locally sourced and where animals are fed a natural diet. This is an opportunity to experience "La Pura Vida" at its finest.

This is a wonderful chance to get to know a Costa Rican family who loves the land. I've lived in Costa Rica for 25 years, so I'm kind of over really "touristy" stuff. This is the real deal. I brought my parents who are farmers in their 70s from the USA and we all loved it. Wonderful people, a beautiful farm, and an example of how Costa Rica and its culture has evolved over the last 3 generations.

This is a family farm. Orlando, the enthusiastic guide, works the farm with his father and practices sustainable farming. His English is very good. You will feel welcome from the start as he walks you through the farm explaining their transition to sustainable farming. You will have hands on with milking, feeding the animals and tortilla making. Orlando's mother, Yolanda is a light hearted, hard working woman. she will offer you refreshment of coffee, fresh cheese (that you will observe being made) and the homemade tortilla. This was a great surprise ending our Monteverde visit.
