Where does the Finca Fresh produce come from?
The phrase 'Finca Fresh' was coined during Finca Bellavista's hay day and was a popular option for guests. The bag was filled with a selection of fruits and vegetables straight from the former community gardens. Unfortunately, when the business shut, so did the gardens and sadly residents are not permitted to use the vivero as it is now considered private property
Here's the good news! The former head gardner "Felo Zuniga" (seen leading a garden tour of the once flourishing FBV gardens) is still producing fresh produce, only now on an even bigger scale!
We went to visit Felo and his family in Santa Rosa (about a 20 min drive from Finca Bellavista) to see what he has been getting up too since leaving FBV.
We knew Felo was talented, we've been working with him for 8 years but what we didn't know was that his own personal gardens made the former communities gardens look like amateurs!
The Fusion Home takes no responsibility for your stay at Finca Bellavista or the services provided. The operations are the same as they were prior to the property management company being shut early 2020 only now they are head up independently by the former FBV employee.
We are happy to assist our neighbors rent their homes and the former Finca Bellavista employees with work opportunities - we take no cut or commission from any of the services offered.
The Finca Fresh bag can be purchased when making your reservation for $35.00. The owner of the home you are renting will receive the money and forward it to Felo, who will then harvest your produce the morning of your arrival and leave it in your rental home.
Felo would like to request that you leave the empty bag, note and any containers received with your Finca Fresh bag inside the rental when checking out.
We cannot adjust or request anything on your behalf but feel free to reach out to Felo after purchasing the bag for any adjustments or special requests:
