Economy

The economy of Santa María la Real de Nieva and its thirteen collective towns are almost 50% devoted to agriculture, mainly cereals, with a high degree of mechanization. Most of the livestock farms raise poultry and fowl; a smaller number are hog or sheep farms, and a minority raise cattle. All of these towns have hunting areas that are governed by leasing contracts of 1 to 6 years. The exploitation of forest land is usually managed by the Government.


Approximately 13% of the population works in manufacturing and industry. None of the companies in the area produce or transform raw materials, so the businesses in this sector are mainly foodstuff, construction, and carpentry businesses, or hardware or packaging factories.

Approximately 37% of the population works in the service sector. These businesses consist mainly of small family-owned businesses and offices, such as hotels and restaurants, and businesses devoted to the transportation of goods, agricultural services, repairs, retail, financial entities, public transportation, fuel, etc.
