Animals

There are all manner of wild animals on the farm. More than 80% of the area is devoted to re-forestation and that is their habitat. They include hundreds of howler, spider and white face monkeys, sloths, deer, coyote, fox, opossum, skunk, squirrel, iguana as well as hundreds of species of birds.

We also have herds of domesticated animals for food production and work animals such as hoses and oxen. All these animals are free range and are raised under strict organic standards. The animals are fed a milled mix of high protein plants including morera, sugar cane, taiwan grass and the high protein leaves of several local trees such as moringa, guacimo and madero negro.

We raise cows for milk, cheese, yogurt, butter and beef as well as manure which we use in our compost for its nitrogen content.

We raise pelibuey, a goat/sheep cross, primarily for its meat.

We raise chickens for eggs and meat.
