Hi Folks. My husband, Michael, and I purchased 80 hectares on the side of a mountain in the Andes of Peru directly south of Machu Picchu 2 years ago. It is a remote area which until recently had no road access. We are striving to build adobe structures (one nearly complete), install a Pelton wheel for hydro-electric power (nearly complete), are growing vegetables heretofore unknown in Peru, and raising chickens for eggs and meat and goats for cheese production. We invite anyone who would like to experience rural Andean culture and can assist with planning and working on this project to come stay with us. We can provide transportation to and from the airport in Cusco, food and a bed. We do have an indoor toilet (the only one for miles!) Water is from mountain springs- delicious. Food is mostly what we grow (potatoes, quinoa, vegetables) and some meat. Fish is available from the river at the foot of the property. Quail and deer are available for hunting. Condors and ferrets are regular visitors. We cannot offer salaries at this time; we will be able to do so once we get our value-added products (unique fruits and vegetables, goat cheese, sauerkraut, kim chee etc.) into the market. There is video of the land on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/user/laspuertasranch?feature=mhee#p/u Thank you.
