Edible Forest

So what do we mean by “edible forest” anyways?

By the term edible forest, we are referring to the extremely hard, and time consuming work, that began almost five years ago and is ongoing. For example, this year alone we planted over 3,000 fruit trees! This is on top of the already hundreds of fruit trees planted over 5 years ago, as well as other plants and flowers to beautify the village.

At the ranch, coming through the gates, an amazing tranquil feeling overcomes you as the infrastructure we have created begins to unfold right in front of your eyes.

We take great pride in the work we have done to achieve the goal of having a fully self sustainable ecovillage. In order to make this possible, it was necessary to start the process of planting trees and vegetation years before we actually built our community of people and homes. You will find fruit trees like Yaca, Wild Plumbs, Noni, Avocados, Mango, Papaya, Guanabana, and more. Not only are these trees planted all over the ranch property, but they are also planted on and around each home’s property. In the main crop field, we are growing sugar cane and corn. Walk out your front door and pick a giant mango for breakfast. Or perhaps you will take a stroll down to your enclosed vegetable garden and pick the veggies for tonight’s dinner?

The edible forest is strategically planted with mixed fruit trees and vegetation to allow us to use NO pesticides. We are completely ORGANIC! Organic is very important to us, as we believe that nature was not meant to be sprayed with dangerous chemicals. If you are looking for a quiet and peaceful place to call home, or perhaps even a weekend getaway, look no further. At Rancho ∞ Amigos we are focused on creating an environment that is exactly this – tranquility.
