After that many friends had readed my last post about my dramatic experience with the cold climate of Minnesota, more than one have asked me: Why are you there? Why go to in a place so far from paradise Ecuador? ………
Not only my friends from Ecuador have mentioned how illogical it was to moved to the cold North but friends from Minnesota Whom usually after listen and watch pictures from my country and the natural beauty also have asked me: What are you doing here? Why change Ecuador for Minnesota?
I answered them, I have come to Hoch Orchard and Garden Farm, this place stole my heart since the first time I saw it in August 2011.
The warmth of the people, the opportunity to always interact with people from different countries, different ideas, cultures, foods. The most fascinating thing about Hoch Orchard is that they are not only an organic farm but They are in the transition to have the Biodynamic certification.
How can I miss home!!! if here I’m able to be involved in gardening, planting berries, bud grafting in the nurseries, fruits crops (apple, blueberry, strawberry, raspberry,etc.)
When I arrived I didn’t see anything green, just the white snow on the ground… For somebody who comes from a country where can see green everywhere all the time is hard to believe that everything will popping up again.
more than 50 varieties of apple, berries, grapes, vegetables, hogs, sheeps, chickens, a llama, a cute puppy an the cool people make of this farm the perfect place for me to stay.
I read somewhere that “God make the countryside and humans the city”.
I could write more details about Why I am here, but I don’t think I have enough time and space. Life is good 🙂
