    Laguna Verde is located inside the Arenal Nature Reserve in the department of Matagalpa, in the same area as our other farms La Huella and Mama Mina. Laguna Verde has a very unique micro-climate which is covered in fog for over 60% of the day during the harvest season. This means that the farm “auto-shades” itself and does not require many shade trees. As a matter of fact, we have learned that too much shade on this farm actually helps increase the spread of certain fungus which affects the health of the plants. This relatively high altitude of the farm and fog also creates cooler temperatures which help in the slow maturation of the cherries.
