Welcome to Finca Good Life!
By the way, that’s not just a name; it’s our philosophy. Living the good life is what we do everyday, and our desire is to share it with you for a few days.
But what in the world is a finca? In Spanish it means “farm.” We don’t have anything like a huge Texas ranch, or a vast corn field in Iowa. No, it’s not that kind of farm. Maybe you should think more about Old MacDonald’s place. But put it on a mountain-top. At 5000 feet. In Costa Rica. Now you’re getting the idea.
Yes, we have a few chickens…and geese…and guineas. They strut around striking the most delightful poses. Speaking of strutting, don’t be surprised when Ben and Jerry—the twin turkeys—run up to gobble bienvenidos (welcome.) We have the sweetest dairy goats you’ve ever seen. And (with a little help from me in the kitchen) they produce a wide variety of homemade, organic, artisan cheeses. From Manchego to Brie to Chevré and more, they will entrance your taste buds.
Of course, we also have our good-natured pups. And what would a farm be without a barn cat. Today a lot of folks call what we do, homesteading.
We just call it the good life.
