We bring life back to soils through Holistic Management in Livestock Production.


At Suelos Vivos we understand regenerative livestock farming as a way to provide solutions to the current challenges faced by humanity and the planet.

We are a grassroots movement that brings together technicians and farmers who want to work with a new perspective; learning to unlearn and observing and imitating nature to transform livestock systems into a solution.

By applying Holistic Management on our livestock and farms, we contribute to reestablish natural cycles and capture carbon into the soil. Thus restoring our healthy relationship with the ecosystems, while achieving a more efficient and profitable production.

With healthy, living soils we ensure the wellbeing of our lands and of future generations who wish to keep the legacy of our farms alive.

We are the Costa Rican hub of the Savory Institute.

The Savory Network is a global network that seeks to reverse desertification and respond to climate change through regenerative livestock farming. 
The Savory Institute specializes in Holistic Management, a management framework developed by Allan Savory. The implementation of Holistic Management in livestock production allows doubling the profitability of a farm and recovering the ecosystem through pasture regeneration.

"Ultimately, the only wealth that can sustain any community, economy or nation is derived from the photosynthetic process: green plants growing in regenerating soil."
