What are my options for organic meat in Nosara?

There have been huge advances in the ten years we’ve lived in Nosara.  I’m sure we’ll write about them in the future, but of all the advances, the most important might be food quality, specifically meat.

In 2006 there was one option for good meat in Nosara, and that was Mini Super Delicias, the mini down from the Iguana.  Everything was frozen, and with the consistent power outages, meat was frozen and re-thawed multiple times.  But, at least we had an option.

Our normal practice for our first 3 or so years was to take a monthly trip to San Jose and grocery shop.  We’d hit Price Smart and then buy our meat at Don Fernando’s.  Load up a huge cooler and drive back to the jungle.  Mind you, the roads weren’t what they are now and the new highway wasn’t yet built – the drive was every bit of six hours.

Cut to present day and there are numerous grocery stores, all much cleaner and fully stocked with anything you’d want to purchase.  For goodness sake, we’ve got craft beer!

Maybe our favorite addition in the last couple years is Tony and his organic farm.  The meat is incredible.  We only supply his meat in our camps and all-inclusive family vacations.  Below you can check out his latest offering.
