We originally set out to purchase a large piece of Rain Forest with a view to preserving it and protecting the habitat for the wildlife. Having a lifelong interest in Butterflies, when the Ranch became available it was a dream come true for our family. The Butterfly Farm presented the opportunity to not only preserve a large piece of a Rain Forest but to also employ a significant amount of people creating meaningful professional jobs without having to cut down a single tree!
By far the most rewarding aspect of running the Butterfly Farm is when visitors who planned to spend about 40 minutes with us are still here after a couple of hours. Some have even described their visit to Green Hills as the highlight of their vacation in Belize.
There is more! Our newly created Hummingbird viewing area presents further great photo opportunities. Some visitors have spent more than 3 hours just watching and photographing the Hummingbirds alone!
Green Hills continues to improve as we add more magnificent Butterfly species to and we ourselves learn more about the natural wonders of the Jungles of Belize.
