Dominican Republic Farms and Farmland for Sale
The purchase of farmland by foreigners in the Dominican Republic, where ownership and operation of agricultural property is not only possible but encouraged, is a growing trend. There are many beautiful farms for sale on this Caribbean Island, of varying sizes, suitable for different uses. Typically, a single farm might provide for a small herd of dairy cows, a fish-farm, plantain production and some acres in melons, cocoas or pineapples.
The soil is well-drained and rich, of volcanic origin. A wide variety of crops flourish on Dominican farms. These include bulk crops like sugarcane and rice in the lowlands and various tubers, bananas, plantains, avocadoes, citrus, melons and pineapples on up-country farms. Luxurious dark cocoa and world-class Arabica coffees grow at higher altitudes, warmed by the tropical sun and benefiting from abundant rainfall in many areas.
That same rich earth may also support farms dedicated to the raising and nurturing of animals. Beef cattle ranching is widespread in the country as is dairy farming. Other properties specialize in equestrian breeding and training, some producing world renowned Paso Fino horses. Other farm raised animals seen in the Dominican Republic include goats, sheep, poultry and pigs. An unusual but increasingly popular form of farming today involves the raising of edible fish, such as Tilapia, or sweet-water shrimp.
With almost 30% of the total land area of the country suitable for crop production and about 17% of the labor force engaged in farming, agriculture remains the primary occupation of the Dominican population. For a person or group considering a farm, the Dominican Republic is a natural choice, being blessed by nature’s abundance and populated by a friendly, eager people skilled in most aspects of land use.
