It has installations for housing and milking 116 cows (presently), which can be easily increased for 150/60 cows producing up to 3,000 litres milk per day (US$1,500 per day at current prices). There is a manager’s house plus six workers cottages. The farm is worked by 7 employees.
Dairy Herd: Present dairy herd of cows, heifers and calves numbers 250 – 65% Holstein-Friesian and the remainder Jerseys – plus a purebred Ayrshire bull, brought in as an embryo transplant from New Zealand.
There will be an average of 15 cows and heifers calving monthly from now on. Sales of surplus stock can generate a useful second income. The last three cows sold from the farm raised US$1,600. Jersey cows and pregnant heifers are selling very well at present and are getting up to US$2,000 each.
Plus… US$25,000+ Per Month For Cow Sales.
Reproduction is mainly due to artificial insemination. A vet visits the farm monthly to check on herd health, individual fertility and condition. Vaccinations etc are carried out according to an annual programme. All animals are monitored with a computer programme.
Current Production: Around 3,000 litres of milk per day, sold under contract to a large industrial corporation operating. Collection is every other day. Previously, and until recently, because of it’s superior quality, for 7 years our milk was sold to Lekkerland the premier cheese maker in the country. The future for the dairy business is bright as world stocks dwindle before great demand from Asia.
Water Sources: The farm has many springs within its premises, but water is supplied by the village water company for the dairy installations — an ASADA — of excellent quality.
Relations with the Community: There is an excellent relationship with the local community, from which many inhabitants have found employment in the farm and hotel, presently and in the past. The present owners have worked for the betterment of the community during their ownership. They have also been involved in promoting sustainable practices in their own businesses and in the area.
Communications: Telephones, mains electricity, broadband, are all available in the area.
Driving time to San Jose the capital is about one hour.

The community has several organizations looking after the interests of its inhabitants.
There are approximately 16,000M2 in various but contiguous pieces and would be ideal, due to their road frontage position, to site agro-touristic enterprises adding value to the production of the farm. There is every opportunity to add value to milk and other products produced on the farm or nearby, and market locally to the thousands of tourists passing the front of the farm.
