A variety of organic crops are currently growing on the property such as bananas, plantains, citrus fruits, cassava, corn, beans, coffee, and others! There is plenty of land to grow more crops as well. The abundant spring water is used to irrigate the crops in addition to being used as potable drinking water at the house. This water is pure and some of the best in the area! Not many properties this close to Vilcabamba have their own water springs, so it makes this property even more extraordinary!
