I am 53. My wife is 44.  We have a 5 year old daughter. We sold everything and moved to Ecuador 4.5 years ago.  We bought land and built house in the Andes. It was just a little too cool for us. And couldn't grow as much as we would like. We decided to sell. And move down in elevation. Buying land and house in Ecuador. 4500ft 1371M.  
Temps 70-80F 21-26C everyday. Year around growing most anything. Property only has about 5 acres. But more land is for sale nearby. Currently has many fruit trees. Oranges several types of Lemons bananas etc.  

We were thinking it would be good to do this with someone else. Let someone else live this dream with us  Trying to be as self sufficient as possible. Seems many are interested, but no idea how to start the journey.  Two heads might be better than one so to speak. Rent free. Just contribute to Homestead.  

Would anyone be interested in Homesteading with us in Ecuador?  House is huge. It has a suite built for person to stay in while main house was being built. Bedroom kitchen bathroom living area. Seperate entrance. Perfect for single person. Couple. Or small Family.


Are thoughts on canidates. First and foremost we must get along, be friends, and work as one. We would like them to bring something to the table. Like carpenter, mason, animal husbandry, horticulture, aquaculture, anything they would specialize in. Ask any questions.

Wow that climate sounds perfect, and growing all my favorite things!  We've always been interested in leaving the US but haven't managed to figure out the visa and residency logistics without a location independent income, yet.  Right now we're mini-homesteading in the Northern Marianas Islands.  Would love to hear how your new place is going!  🌅
