Overview
More
In 2011 we started a small organic farm. We produce many of our own vegetables, quinua and potatoes. Our farm is worked without agrochemicals or synthetic fertilizers, using many traditional techniques (plowing with oxen, rotating crops and biological controllers for pests & disease). A traditional Incan meal cooked on hot rocks, the Pachamanca Lunch includes a tour of our hotel, farm, Canazo distillery and coffee roastery. Lunch includes chicken, pork, and lamb, potatoes, organic vegetables and salad, and chicha morada. It is served at covered picnic tables with views of the mountains, glaciers and archeological sites. We accommodate most dietary restrictions. For guests not staying with us, we ask for a 50% deposit in advance. Cancellations or modifications must be made before 8pm the day prior to the reservation, otherwise we charge the full amount of the deposit as a cancellation fee. Daily at 11am, 1pm, & 3pm; $40USD (Adult), $30USD (Child); total duration: approx. 2 hours.

The setting for the farm lunch was lovely, but the food was inedible. The roasted potatoes were burned hard and the portions of meat were all fat and bones. No dessert was served to our groups, but the group that came after us received dessert....More

This was a very nice meal prepared in an earth covered oven on super-heated rocks. It was amazing to watch the process and the food was excellent!
