The grounds at Finca La Víspera are our main source of food with our organic plants, we have the Garden Café, the Herbolarium, horses, flowers and birds, and areas for lodging and camping, as well as plenty of areas to simply do nothing.
La Víspera is a well-established organic herb farm. Herbs are dried and processed into delicious herbal blends on a daily basis. We also process herbal extracts & massage oils and make our own mango chutney, jams, rhubarb sauce & fruity nectars.
Besides we are specialized in leafy vegetables & edible flowers. Every Wednesday we harvest fresh
products for the health food market in Santa Cruz.
