The opportunity to witness agriculture in action is a rarity nowadays. To experience where our food is grown rather than to watch it arrive at supermarkets is the point of our farm tours. Our farmers are happy to work with you to design a farm tour that fits into your group’s focus.
The Organic Farm with COSTA RICA DESCENTS is committed to providing the community with opportunities to connect with local agriculture on many levels. If you are interested in getting out into the field to help grow crops this growing season, consider volunteering
