Forest Farm San Nicolas


This farm is the first official Forest Farm in Nicaragua which started over 20 years ago when its owner decided to abandon growing maize and beans and to produce wood instead. If you are interested to learn more about the management of Pine forest, this is a great place to visit. You can take one of the walking routes established. The farm also has a small wood-processing plant where they process there own wood. In the last years the farm has also converted it in an increasingly popular recreation area where families gather in the weekends to spend some time in a natural area. Their ranches, playing grounds and publicly available “firewood/ charcoal” kitchens offers them a great opportunity with relatively little costs!
