Still one of the best real estate deals in the world
Still one of the best real estate deals in the world by Simon Black – Sovereign Man
After roughly two months away in Europe and Asia, it’s great to be back here at my favorite place on earth.
I’m not talking about Chile– although I do enjoy the country. I’m talking specifically about this farm. It’s the perfect place for me.
The views are sensational. I’m surrounded by nature. And there’s an imposing backdrop of snow-capped Andean peaks to frame the vista.
And the stars at night are more vibrant than almost anywhere else I’ve been in the world… including the remote savannahs of Africa.
But I’m not here just for the stars or the views…
I’m able to organically produce almost all of the food I eat on the farm.
There’s an exceptional variety of fruit and nut trees, including peaches, plums, nectarines, figs, walnuts, almonds, chestnuts, apples, oranges, tangerines, lemons, cherries, blueberries, strawberries, pears, apricots, loquats, grapes, and quince to name a few…
I can grow pretty much everything save tropical fruits like bananas.
I also produce olives and press my own olive oil. I grow rice and wheat, so I have my own flour.
I even produce my own wine. And I distill organic waste into ethanol to use as a biofuel.
There are free-range chickens that produce organic, all-natural eggs. Pigs and sheep for meat.
Plus the farm has plenty of sources of water and energy. It’s totally self-sufficient… and abundant.
While the total farm size exceeds 1,000 acres, the portion that I farm for personal use is a fraction of that.
But it’s still more than enough to produce FAR more than I can consume. (You’d be surprised how little land it takes to feed a family– even half an acre is sufficient.)
The surplus can be saved, sold, or in certain cases like biofuel, converted into a different product.
It might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but for me this lifestyle is ideal– one that’s based on production and independence.
