    Hello Wladimir and welcome,
    I think that of all the places I'd like to visit/live in the world, Chile is at the very top of the list. While looking up where in Chile is El Maule (apparently a wine producing region south of Santiago) I found some photos of the area:

    Stunning!
    Looking forward to hearing of your project!

    Excellent Wladimir! Your house looks to be coming along nicely. Do you have grazing animals?

    Not of my own. But I let the cows come in, and they keep the grass low. All the acres next are closed for animals and the grass is grwn and the people work to cut it. In the future hope to have some pig and chiken.

    Your property looks great Wladimir. What is the type of tree I see on your pics? How high is your mountain?
    Like you I am also planning to have chickens, but first time only from Oct-April, so I think of maybe just small ones.
    Good luck with your pigs.

    Is just 426 above sea level, but near is 2230 and after that, 2800 aprox. The tress are a tipe of forest of de central zone called esclerofilo, capable to live in extreme hot and cold. Are Quillay, Litre, Belloto del sur, and Acacia Caven (the three first are very similar betwen them, acacia is diferent).

    ¿Any idea to start with the pigs? In a very small scale.

    Saludos!
