Hills of San Francisco

Hills of San Francisco

We’ve been planting hundreds of cocoa trees last couple of weeks here in San Francisco de Penas Blancas, in the rain, lightning flashing and thunder crashing this morning, and the cocoa loves rain.  All from one 40 year old tree, we started 3 years ago.  We’re also planting corn, heirloom organic beans, squash and pumpkin on our sister farm the Ponderoso, growing all our own.

1000 square meter lots available, buy now in case your pension disappears in a few years in the next, certain financial crash.  Email me @ curtullman@yahoo.com for details.  Pura Vida.

Here’s a good view of our farm above and to the east of the residences in a somewhat wild state.  To the right is a forest that descends down to the Burrito River, witth maybe 400 meters of riverfront, and as you can see,on the left to the road there’s ample room for farm or gardening projects, such as our cocoa tree farm, the planting of 6000 trees to commence in a few weeks.

IMG_7054Summer has finally arrived a month late, but it sure is beautiful now up here at the Hills of SF, above the pueblo, below the rainforest.  We have almost 6000 cocoa tree seedlings we’re going to plant on our cooperative permaculture farm across the street from our homes.  When you retire here, you now have a typical Tico farm to wander around on, walk or drive a quad down to the wild Rio Burrito, swim in the local swimming hole with the local folks and kids, or walk through the forest along the river.  And eat the greatest food in the world (dark chocolate) from our chocolate business (in a few years).

Come visit us here at the La Fortuna Hotel in La Fortuna, and check out Hills of San Francisco at cacaogecko.com.
