Not only Fruit and Vegetables in a Micro Farm in the Osa Peninsula

The wide array of environments present in the Osa Peninsula, offer, in almost every Farm Land, some spots that can be easily converted to a shallow pond, fed with natural springs, or creeks that run all the year long , specially in the farms that have good Forest areas.

In these Ponds is quite easy to produce good quality Tilapia Fish in quantity that , often, are much more than the normal need of a family, creating the conditions for the begin of some small local Business like a Restaurant specialized in serving fresh caught Tilapia, or a Family Small Farm that serve this fish to occasionally visitors and clients of Hotels in the area that add an Organic Farm Tour for to entertain their clients.

Your Dream House + 2 acres Microfarm in the best Oceanview Spot of the Osa Peninsula

We have a proposal for people that are looking for an alternative to the traditional ideas of moving out of the too much ” civilized ” world.

Normally the alternatives offered for to start a new life, more in touch with nature and with the possibility of self-sufficiency , are the purchase of a piece of land and start farming it with the personal knowledge and skill and face any kind of risk and defeat,  or join some group of people that are in the same mood, and share land, knowledge and skills, a kind of ” comune”,  a very good system but, often, people that want to run “away from the crazy crowd”, are too much individualistic for to feel comfortable with this solution .

So, what we have to offer you is a combination of Land + House + Knowledge/Training/Help, a special package where the best is assembled for to assure an easy, safe move to a Natural Self-sustainable Life, with the help of good people that made all the experience necessaries to avoid the mistakes that can make difficult the Stairway to Heaven ….

We have this piece of land:

Great Ocean View Property in the Osa Peninsula apt for to build nice, rural residences and Microfarms

Great Ocean View Property in the Osa Peninsula apt for to build nice, rural residences and Microfarms

…do you see the Ocean view we are talking about?….yes, here it is the spot where we are thinking your rural house could fit…..which kind of house?

We are thinking that you would be interested in something like this :

A Top end rural House for a tropical farm for a Microfarming Project in the Osa Peninsula

A Top end rural House for a tropical farm for a Microfarming Project in the Osa Peninsula

….rather than this:

A simple Wood cabin in a tropical Small Farm in the Osa Peninsula

A simple Wood cabin in a tropical Small Farm in the Osa Peninsula

…but we can build for you anything in between of these two possibilities.

The idea is to give you a piece of land , more or less half of one acre, where to build your dream house with a nice tropical garden around, plus one or two acres of land where to start any kind of fruit and vegetable production, set a stable for a couple of horses, chicken, one cow or two goats for milk, maybe a couple of piglets, rabbits and whatever you prefer for to fill your Tropical Micro Farm.

For to give to all these animals and plants the necessary water we have a couple of freshwater springs, in the forest that is part of this project, like this one:

 A natural Freshwater Spring in the Forest of the Osa Peninsula

If you are thinking to move to a natural Farm-like lifestyle, but you don’t want, or can’t , renounce to some features of the civilized world, as cell phone, internet connection, air conditioned…well, it is your choice, but you don’t have to worry about this  because, despite we are in a location just at few kilometres from the border of the Corcovado Park, Internet and cell phone are available on the land of this project, and the electric grid is at the gate of the property, so it will be a smooth passage from one World to the Other.

How much do it is costing to make real this dream?

We have to talk about some details before to be able to do exact numbers, but, just for to start talking about it, you can figure out an amount between  100.000 $  and 300.000, depending by the size of the house and the farm lots, the quality of the Ocean View, the kind of the House you want, and the kind of Farming Plan Training/Help you will need.

So, as You see we need to talk….just email us at info@theosapeninsulaproperties.com, and we will find the right solution.
