We visited Huaca Huasi with Adrian from Terra Quechua Tours out of Cusco, Peru (http://www.terraquechuaperu.com/). At nearly 4,000 meters in the Andes, the community subsists primarily on the only crop that will grow: potatoes. About 80 percent of men from Huaca Huasi work in the fields, and labor rules are strictly determined by gender.
Let it be known—a potato grown without the aid of chemicals, pesticides, or even modern tools is just about the best potato we've ever tried. And just about the most difficult farming we've ever seen.
