Traditional Farming of the Andes
In Harmony with Nature
The Andean region has been characterized for the past 5,000 years by its variety of indigenous and diversifying crop species. Agriculture here is underscored by the vast and adaptable knowledge of the Inca farmers; whose methods we still implement today. These practices are defined by reworking the unique terrain with traditional tools and dispersing particular elements at different altitudes via terraces, to sustain the land and maximize yields.
Our seasonal, organic garden´s terraces are brimming with green beets, butter lettuce, and the sweetest spring onions in the Sacred Valley. We strive to grow as much of our own food as possible, and more than just a sustainable practice this allows us to have the freshest ingredients possible, when we can eat produce in the same place and on the same day as where it was harvested.
