Finca Carrizal has a very special place in Ricardo Zelaya's heart as it was his first ever farm. In 1986, at just 21 years old he bought his own piece of land right next to his family’s farm. He purchased it with a partner that was a good friend of his father. Little did they know they became great friends also. Ricardo learned a great deal from his partner and vice versa. In this farm he able to experiment first hand everything he had learned in his studies in agronomic practices. He built his first wet mill and plated new varietals. Still today, this is the farm where the nursery is located to supply the other farms he manages and owns with new plants. With rain almost 8 months of the year and amazing soil the young plants can grow strong and adapt when transported to other farms.Socially, the farm maintains a primary school of 97 children and includes a computer lab for the youth of the surrounding area.
