HELP WITH FARM/LAND SEARCH
Many people buy
farms in Puerto Rico but only few are aware of what they are buying. There are many factors that determine whether a farm
is ideal for your purpose. Many farms sold are "problem" farms which either
force the new owners to invest enormous amounts of additional money for
site improvements and repairs or the soils are so poor
or unsuited for their purpose that they fail to grow what they intended
Over the years, I have seen literally hundreds of farms
in Puerto Rico, and I have helped many buyers with their decision to
buy the right land for them. I can't recommend enough to always have
land analyzed by a consultant before buying it, especially if it is
meant for agricultural cultivation.
If you are looking for land or need me to look for it
on the west coast or central area of Puerto Rico, I can help you in
the following way:
Locate interesting farms for your purpose and
determine their actual value (just by doing this, I have saved
buyers thousands of dollars).
Make detailed, in-depth evaluation
of land that you consider to buy.
Analyze soil quality and texture, pH, topography, and
other essential factors in order to recommend the most suitable
crops (fruits, vegetables, herbs, bamboo).
Design orchards and help you to get your farm
If you have a farm for sale in Puerto Rico and want an
ecologically conscious buyer, I can help you get the farm sold

pure streams, a large pool - the ideal setting for an eco-village.
The price is good and the options to develop this farm are
Here the feedback from one
of my customers, who I found a farm for and whom I am currently
helping to design and develop one of the most beautiful farms
in Puerto Rico:
"When we decided to search for a farm on the west coast of
Puerto Rico I contacted Sadhu at Govardhan Gardens for help.
Our request was a farm close by surfing beaches, which made
the job of finding a suitable farm for a diversified fruit
farm very difficult. Within only a week, he found a farm in a
fantastic location, just a few minutes from our favorite
beaches. Our first concern was the quality of the soil: we
analyzed it and found that it was one of the best soils on the
west coast. Needless to say I was thrilled and decided to buy
The farm had been pastureland for a long time, and no
chemicals were ever used there, or at least not for decades.
Sadhu guided us in selectively clearing in a way that was
ecologically sensible and in finding optimal areas for a wide
variety of fruit trees and bamboo. Once we had the land ready
and the rainy season arrived we picked up our first
installment of trees at Govardhan Gardens ready for planting.
Sadhu helped sort the plants onsite and instructed us where
and how to plant them. In the process of planting I realized
how each and every species has a very particular cultural
requirement, and Sadhu knows exactly which
Itís been a few months now that the trees are planted and the
growth is nothing short of phenomenal. So far this year weíve
planted several species of structural bamboo, 83 different
fruit and nut trees, including some very rare ones. With the
current climate change, we are growing species that have never
been grown before in this part of the island. Sadhu is already
preparing new species for next yearís planting season. Iíve
saved time, money and avoided costly mistakes by using his
services. We are doing a long-term, sustainability-oriented
project and Sadhu is a crucial part of our team."
Living the dream,
