Here is a six acre organic tomato farm for sale near Cotacachi where you could retire in Ecuador.

Merri and I have been looking for ways that subscribers can retire in Ecuador so we visited the farm with our real estate tour director Alberto Verdezoto and Peggy Carper who is living in Cotacachi and who helps subscribers find rentals and real estate.

I happily snapped away all these photos at this potential Ecuador retirement farm.

Delegates on our last tour visited and I have heard that an offer was made.

I have not heard that a sale was confirmed so if you are thinking about retirement in Ecuador and this is of interest subscribe to Ecuador Living here.

Here is the Ecuador organic farmer with our driver Jorge, Alberto Verdezoto and Peggy Carper.

Tomatoes grow quickly here it seems.  These newly planted organic tomatoes will be ready in three weeks. I find this hard to believe but this is what the farmer said.  Though my Spanish has been known to miss on occasion.

We have price and brokerage details that we have sent to our Ecuador Living at Ecuador Organic Tomato Farm.

The farmer recently sold a house in the center of Cotacachi for much less than his asking price. He is building five condos and is using the proceeds of his sales to build.

This Ecuador organic tomato farm is ideal for someone who wants to retire in Ecuador on a small organic operation that provides a modest income and natural lifestyle.

Manabi Ecuador Agri Business Expedition

Here is an update on Jean Marie Butterlin’s Manabi Ecuador agriculture/business expedition.

5969898009 a5eb903a4a o Retire in Ecuador on an Organic Farm

The Manabi Ecuador Agri Expendition will be in 4 wheel drive SUVs

This is the second farm outlined in our Agri business series. See the first farm at “Agricultural Tour“.

The Manabi Agri Business Expedition will show many farms… small… large… and some that can be divided.

Here are the first three farms (Jean Marie will be sending more) to be seen:

#1: Big Ecuador farm!  Here is a 1,000 acre farm that covers an entire enclosed valley.  550 acres are farmland.

This farm has water and computerized irrigation. 

5970457226 6e7f6955fc o Retire in Ecuador on an Organic Farm

Only part has ever been farmed. The soil is very rich.  Last year 14 acres alone produced 25 tons of papayas per week.

5969899325 0decae515b o Retire in Ecuador on an Organic Farm

This property has a beautiful hacienda with a little fruit garden that includes 48 species of tress from cashew trees to coconut, citrus mango, etc….

5970457058 f6118d1fce o Retire in Ecuador on an Organic Farm

Cashew.

5969897587 d4857b890d o Retire in Ecuador on an Organic Farm

Cashew fruit.

This property can be divided into smaller lots, 60 to 100 acres each.   There is a  private 4.5 mile road that runs through the valley. 

5970456344 2213eb3afb o Retire in Ecuador on an Organic Farm

There are also possibilities in the eco-tourism for the part that is hilly where you can see Howler monkeys, many species of birds.

Ideal for growing balsa wood, cashew trees as examples.  Our agri-engineers are thinking outside the box…cashew tree, especially organic, brings one of the highest incomes per acre of all.   Importers in California pay up to $7,000 per ton for dried, organic cashews.   Not many Ecuador farmers know about growing cashews in Manabi where the climate is close to optimal for some of the species. Cashew trees start producing in the 4th year and are good cash flow producing trees as is balsa wood.   Balsa trees take only 4 to 5 years to reach maturity.

There is a big demand for organic produce and we have met recently with US clients who are eager to buy exotic organic fruits from Ecuador.

This valley has easy access to a very good asphalt road and is only 1hour and 30 minutes from the port of Manta.

#2: 250 acres farm in Manabi with year round water, river and very rainy area. This farm is ideal for papaya and mango, with an off season watermelon crop.

5969898441 61bd35d526 o Retire in Ecuador on an Organic Farm

Papaya.

This farm can also be divided in 3 to 5 lots and has a good road and easy access.

 5969900417 a3886ff278 o Retire in Ecuador on an Organic Farm

Hacienda.

#3: 90 acre farm close to Canoa with water.  Ideal for cattle or fruits.  This farm can also be divided.

There is also good opportunity for Biodiesel crops in the dryer areas with pinon or a species of flaxseed. On the Manabi Agri Expedition we include farms best suited for these types of crops.

The prices for all these properties; range between $800 and $1,500/acre; they are all dividable so no-one needs to take the whole property.         Jean Marie
