The pristine Uchima River flows from the Podacarpus Nat’l Park, high above in the mtns, down through the valley supplying us with wonderful clean water. The river runs along the road which passes in front of the property. This makes for lovely peaceful walks for yourself and your dogs if you have any.

This is a turn key property with an abundance of fruit trees, many already bearing fruit, mature coffee, bananas, some citrus and a large planted garden.

The land is flat, a rare find in this Andean landscape. The property is ideal setting for a peaceful, healthy lifestyle with clean air and water and an ideal climate for growing year round.
The farm supports a small business selling fruits and vegetables if you like, which could easily be expanded upon. It is also set up to create a small nursery. There a different options if you would like the land to produce income.
