Immerse yourself in Pura Vida commercial lifestyle with this turn-key cacao farm. Be a part of a trending cultural movement into locally produced and organically grown cacao products. This sprawling 11 Hectare farm is nestled in a quite rural valley and has over 6,000 cacao trees. The farm produces and packages its own chocolate and branded products on site. The owner has all the necessary modern equipment and machines included in the sales price to produce chocolate and even is producing chocolate ice cream. The property includes a two-bedroom apartment and a one-bedroom staff quarter. There are some permaculture activities on the premises like composting of the cacao.
At the center of the operation there is a modern visitor’s center, and tourists can witness the complete process of producing artisanal chocolate. The farm also grows vanilla, plantains, bananas for additional income. The farm also has cows, goats, chickens, and various other farm animals. In the surrounding jungle, there is an abundance of local wildlife in the area include Monkey’s, Crocodiles, and a variety of tropical birds.
There is a additional separated 2 hectares available for a green housing development, great potential for a retreat center or large residential home.
Property contains 5 wells and has an abundance of water, including a long winding creek that feeds a large pond. The cacao and plantain fields are irrigated from waters from the pond.
The farm regularly hosts tours from companies in neighboring towns and travelers, producing substantial additional income. There is a newly added small track for quad tours traveling through the area.
Don’t miss out on this exciting opportunity. The owner who is Italian is willing to stay over and give you the necessary training.
My take on this farm is: the buyer can control the chocolate production, middleman position and product, packaging and sell to feeder markets under your own brand to US, Europe, local markets, and other commercial markets in the world.
