3.4 Hectare Turnkey Permaculture Farm
Located 25 minutes from Malacatos, 35 from Vilcabamba and an hour from Loja sits nearly 3.4 hectares (8.4 acres) of organically cultivated super foods with a steel house taking advantage of the stunning mountain views.
The property boasts hundreds of Moringa plants and a variety of organic super foods such as; almonds, Malabar chestnuts, dragon fruit, avocado, mulberry, fig, oranges, grapefruit, poma rosa, pomegranate, passion fruit, lime, guava, mango, sugar cane, papaya, guarana, black raspberries, grapes, plantain, an abundance of aloe vera and hot pepper plants and many more! There are over 300 banana trees too! You can arrange for the sale of the excess produce when you harvest crops.
This farm is pesticide-free and organic! With incredibly fertile soil, plenty of water, an extensive irrigation system, and the perfect climate, you can grow pretty much anything your heart desires here year-round!
The entire property is equipped with gravity fed drip irrigation system. The water comes from a pure mountain spring and arrives at the property via a constantly flowing 4” pipe (meaning more water than could ever be used) to several backup water storage tanks. With over a 60,000-gallon water capacity, a private natural spring, a roaring creek connected to the property, and piped in irrigation water, natural resources will never be short here on this beautiful “finca” (farm).
The property is intersected by a low-traffic dirt road. The bottom section has the house and the majority of the fruit trees as well as a drying facility for the moringa. This section is mostly flat, however there is an undeveloped sloped section, which could be used for further construction, cultivation or subdivided and sold. There is already a perfect homesite flattened and ready to build your dream house!
The upper section, which is also flat, features the Moringa, some some papaya trees interspersed as well as the water tanks.
There are several more amazing spots for additional houses.
The house, which is handcrafted (mostly welded) features a workshop downstairs, which could easily be converted into a bedroom, and a kitchen/living space upstairs with a beautiful wrap around iron balcony. The house includes a 6-burner stainless steel range, a full glass door refrigerator, deep freezer, washing machine, hot water running sink & outdoor shower, plus the workshop has all the tools you could need for maintaining the land.
Nestled into the Andes and surrounded by mountains on all sides, this property has the most beautiful mountain views that span for miles and miles. The mountain and valley views are seemingly endless, with frequent rainbows and the sight of rain moving through the mountains.
While already hooked up to electric, this is a perfect area for solar to be completely off-grid and self-sufficient.
