Well-priced land to build on in Panama

"Finca Cazador offers a unique affordable opportunity to live a clean organic lifestyle, surrounded by tropical forest splendor high in the mountains of  western Panama, without having to invest time and money in water or electric infrastructure"

Finca Cazador is a 12 acre organic tropical mountain community that is fully planted with coffee, plantains (platanos) and cacao.

This green and fertile organic farmland is ideal for those who are serious about growing fresh fruits and vegetables on their own small organic farm, or who simply wish to be surrounded by a lush clean garden atmosphere. Our farm community is in an excellent location to build and maintain the perfect family retreat and enjoy complete food, water and personal security.

Bio-Diverse Organic Land - Click to Enlarge
Why is organic soil so important?

Nearly all the available land in Panama, unfortunately, has been sprayed (often for many generations) with petrochemical based fertilizers and pesticides, in order to maximize crop yields and increase production.

This practice has, in effect, killed off all the beneficial vital nutrients in the soil, rendering it worthless without the addition of these toxic substances.

When the time comes that petrochemical additives are either 1) extremely expensive or 2) not available at all, that polluted land will not produce a thing, and will become useless for growing food.

The soil at Finca Cazador is revitalized and totally organic.

The soil here is black and rich with an aroma that only healthy organic soils can produce. 

That was no accident!

When this farm was purchased 12 years ago, we began a tedious and expensive process of revitalization, using natural organic matter to slowly and gradually rebuild the nutrient content of the soil. In addition, many legumes and other nitrogen supplying plants were added to the soil to further aid in photosynthesis and the nutrient building process. 

Finally, over 300 hardwood trees were added in 2006, and now provide a canopy of much needed shade, a vital component of healthy soil. 

Much of the farmland in Panama, and worldwide, has been clear cut to enable mass farming techniques using chemical additives, in order to increase crop yields and profits.

The result? Damaged, dead soil that is heavily dependent on toxic chemicals to keep plants alive, and to keep pests and fungus away.
At Finca Cazador, we have never used chemicals, so your land will provide food security even in the event of an increase in price or shortage of oil-based chemicals.

All of these additional steps were taken for the sole purpose of providing the soil with what it needs to be naturally healthy and life-sustaining indefinitely.

Old Growth Shade Trees Aid Soil Health - Click to Enlarge
This organic Panama farmland is also home to many old growth trees (NOT for harvesting) and fruit trees including platanos, citrus, avocado and others too numerous to mention.

A private 140 foot deep well provides ample water and serves as the farms main water supply, as well as a fresh water creek running through the property. Buyers at Finca Cazador will be co-owners of the water company set up to supply the community. Municipal water is also available, and a fourth source of water is being added now, that comes down to the farm from the nearby mountains under high pressure and will be used primarily for agriculture.

You can raise farm animals, collect fresh eggs and grow all of your own veggies right on your own private retreat, supported by the infrastructure already in place in this sustainable off the grid organic farm community.

Revitalized Soil - Click to Enlarge
The land here has been "revitalized" to as close to original biodiversity and organic nature as possible, through advanced soil re-composition techniques and great expense of time and money. Truly sustainable farming can only take place in a truly organic environment, and this soil has been revitalized tirelessly over the last 12 years.
Perfect location for perma-culture farming
What is perma-culture?

The concept of perma-culture was coined by Bill Mollison and David Holmgren in the late 70's, and is comprised of a combination of the word "permanent" and the word "agriculture". Essentially, perma-culture means a method by which food can be grown naturally and permanently, consistent with nature.

In his book, Introduction to Permaculture, Bill Mollison writes:

"The aim is to create systems that are ecologically-sound and economically viable, which provide for their own needs, do not exploit or pollute, and are therefore sustainable in the long term."

"Perma-culture uses the inherent qualities of plants and animals combined with the natural characteristics of landscapes and structures to produce a life-supporting system for city and country, using the smallest practical area."

So, in essence, perma-culture farming is designing an agricultural system that closely mimics that of nature, and because it does, requires less work and no artificial or chemical means of pest control or fertilization.

The land at Finca Cazador is already perfectly suited for perma-culture farming, as the entire 12 acre property has been strategically planted and maintained to provide optimum natural growing conditions. Operating a small sustainable farm using perma-culture as a design concept would enable a resident to grow organic food abundantly and naturally with almost no maintenance.

Whether you are looking for the best place to live permanently, or just get away from it all and live off the grid for a few weeks a year, this organic Panamanian farmland has it all.
