The Belize Spice Farm & Botanical Gardens, located at the foothills of the Maya Mountain was developed in 1990 as a cacao and citrus farm. Now this 541 acre Golden Stream Plantation includes spice plants, exotic fruit trees, teak and mahogany trees and ornamental plants and is home to one of the largest black pepper and vanilla farms in the country. The farm is adorned with varieties of beautiful trees including teak, mahogany, ziricote, Santa Maria, rosewood, sacred banyan trees and sandalwood. The land has 441 acres dedicated to citrus and hardwoods, 50 acres to spices and 50 acres for the owner’s private residence. The citrus and hardwoods acreage can be purchased separate from the spice farm, restaurant and home.
Tours of the farm opened to the public in December, 2011 and is now a popular tourist destination for Norwegian Cruise Line passengers through the spice identification tour package partnership. Over 3,500 visitors purchased a tour of The Spice Farm in April 2017. A gorgeous teak restaurant was recently built to accommodate up to 35 people for meals and private events. In addition to current income from citrus farming, restaurant food, beverages and spice shop merchandise there are opportunities to expand revenue streams such as local wine, chocolate, harvestable teak and mahogany and on-line spice sales.
The property includes the owner’s 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom home, garage and workshop, electrical generators, extensive carpentry shop, bee farm, equipment sheds, spice drying room, tractors, trailers and so much more.
Rare opportunity to purchase beautiful Belizean acreage with working farm and tourist income!
