Going back to the land.......

More and more people want to return to the simple life...why? Some for health reasons, some are disenfranchised with modern industrial capitalistic and socialistic world economy, and others for fear that in a possible world crisis...it is important to be in a place self sufficient. I would admit that for our family farm....we fit into all three of these reasons.

We are a American/Ecuadorian family who own and operate our farm in the Andes of Ecuador. We do not live full time at our farm but use it occasionally for enjoyment and it also serves as our "super market". We invite foreigners to come visit us and stay with us.
