  • Description


    We have an organic fruit farm on the Pacific side of Mexico. It's not very touristy yet. Our village economy is fish and mangos. Wally and Amaranta have been living gently on this property for 19 years and it has been a refuge to many types of animals, plants and people. Wally is a master mechanic, inventor and electronic wizard. Amaranth is an artist and teacher, a practitioner of the enneagram, homeopathy and the clinic admin for a monthly sterilization of dogs and cats. We are committed to the community here. We are founders and supporters of the weekly farmer's market (biodegradable food ware only), the cultural center and the animal project.
