Productive 2-Hectare Income Property
Located 30 minutes from Malacatos in the small Ecuadorian community of Chiquil is this super productive 2-hectare (4.9 acres) property.
Most of this property is flat and cultivated with a variety of crops. Part of the property has fruit trees such as mangos, avocados, and hundreds of bananas. The rest of the property is cultivated with cassava, white carrots, and sweet potatoes. The soil is so fertile here and barely has any rocks which is perfect for growing all year round in this ideal climate!
There is a flat spot ready for building as well. Because the property is nestled on a hill, the views of the mountains around the valley are wonderful.
Towards the upper part of the property there are two ponds with tilpia.
Irrigation for the crops is all set up with a 3-inch pipe providing water to sprinklers. There is canal water available all year round and potable water is also installed. Electricity is nearby for hook up.
