    Thumbs up

    Yes you can own your own land, and grow whatever you like.
    Price depends on how good your spanish are, and the location.



    Good luck, i have always wanted to have a finca in this country.

    My wife's extended family has a farm east of Mao with plantin, banana, beans etc. These days it is more a free supermarket for refugees. Not sure how widespread the problem is but I imagine lots of farmers are struggling with the issue. Other family has a farm near Constanza with less problems at the moment. So location, location, location if you want to keep anything and I am sure priced accordingly.

    Sadly, this will explode one of these days.

    Jes, jes and jes.

    I, like many, have the dream of buying good land to farm.

    The going rate for good land in the Cibao region is around 40k+ per tarea by all accounts.

    Yes. Mao and the surrounding country is heavily populated with Haitian farm workers. In the rice fields it would be a safe bet to say that 95% of the workers are Haitian, and onthe banana and plantain farms the number is certainly more than 50% and perhaps closer to 80%.
    Even in tobacco growing areas, once a Dominican-only preserve- there are now Haitians involved in many if not all phases of the crop.

    I have no idea what the numbers are but for every employed farm worker there are certainly one or two times number of unemployed, plus families.
