“The first farmer was the first man. All historic nobility rests on the possession and use of land.”

Emerson, Ralph Waldo

Emerson certainly knew what he was talking about, there is something empowering about living off your own land, especially in such a paradise setting like Costa Rica mountains.

It’s not just the beautiful beaches that offer ideal living conditions and exciting businesses opportunities, if you prefer a cooler mountain climate, love nature and fancy yourself as a farmer or even an eco-tourism entrepreneur, then head to the verdant highlands of Costa Rica.

The region of Savegre is located in San Gerardo de Dota and is defined by picture perfect mountain views that stretch as far as the eye can see. You’ll quite literally feel on top of the world!

The Savegre community is dispersed throughout the rolling foothills that define its landscape. With a relatively low population of 3.800 villagers who live in the basin of the famed Savegre River, the majority of residents are dedicated to farming activities including livestock and pastureland, oil palm and rice plantations as well as coffee. Fresh water fishing is also popular here with plentiful stocks of rainbow trout.
