Small Farms

Farms in Costa Rica grow many different things compared to our farm at home.

These are Tilapia fish imported from Africa and are closely contained so they don't escape and take over the wide fish stocks. They are grown strictly for consumption by the family.

Bananas and plantains and the tress on which they are grown

Bananas have black stems and plantains are more green (the banana tree is the top picture.





and yellow sugar cane

A Macadamia tree and the nuts and blossoms below.

A tangerine/lime cross, tho' I can't remember what it is named.

These tomatoes and cabbages look somwhat familiar...

But I have never seen Holstein oxen, especially ones with such a fancy yoke!
