This upscale Costa Rican project features premium facilities, 106 acres of carbon-offsetting tropical forest, hidden waterfalls, a nature-immersed spa, yoga, hiking, horseback riding, meditation, and healthy organic cuisine.
Hacienda Okhra Corporation is a Costa Rican Corporation owned by Georges Lefebvre who purchased over 43 hectares of pristine property in this area of Mal Pais, Costa Rica. With the first phase of the project completed including roads and infrastructure the Hacienda Okhra Project is on its way to construct the second phase of its sustainable project.
Georges Lefebvre was born in France and spent most of his childhood between Paris, France and NYC, USA. Growing up between these two cultures assisted in Georges developing an interest in the finer things this life has to offer. In 1983 Georges graduated from an American School in Paris. After graduation Georges spent a short time in the French Military as an Airborne Commando before he moved to NYC where he opened a variety of restaurants over the next 12 years.
In NYC Georges founded the world famous Parisian restaurant Bilboquet and the Vigt-Deux Private Bar. He also opened a number of famous NYC cafe’s including Palallawest, Panino, Caffe Rosso and Il Baggote before re-locating to Costa Rica in 1999. In 1999 Georges took his knowledge in fine dinning to Costa Rica where he opened a Bilboquet Restaurant in the city of San Jose. In 2003 Georges wanted to combine his culinary knowledge with sustainable food production practices so he started Hacienda Okhra where he has spent the past 10 years implementing the first phase of the project.
The Gardens at Haceinda Okhra are all unique and cater to the type of yield they are producing. The farmers use a variety of techniques including indoor vertical growing systems, out door raised beds of all different sizes as well as growing directly in the ground. The growers use a combination of mediums including fibre de coco, which is coconut fibers, natural compost from the farm, dirt from the ground, as well as the gardens compost and vermiposting systems.
The water is all gravity fed once it gets pumped up to a water tower that is drawing directly from a well. The system is designed as a natural reclamation system where all of the run off flows directly into the outdoor gardens with any leftover ending up in the pond that feeds the well.
The Okhra mix is a salad mix of natural greens produced by Hacienda Ohkra. The gardens are equipped with a natural food production facility using a combination of hydroponics and organic growing practices utilizing natural, chemical free growing techniques that use a 10th of the water that conventional farms use. Currently Hacienda Okhra is producing over 20kilos of fresh fruit and vegetables for top tier restaurants and private chef’s in the neighboring communities.
Hacienda Okhra will continue to build upon its natural food production by developing a facility using aquaponics, which is a combination of aquaculture and hydroponics. This will assist Hacienda Okhra in producing over 20kilos of fish per week for project guests and neighboring restaurants.
