  • Learn about Organic Farming, Andes-Style

    Patate Things to Do

    The Hacienda is a working farm, with the goal of introducing organic farming to the valley and preserving the cloud forest above.I watched Ernesto compost the kitchen garbage, and layer it with droppings from the Guinea Pig coops.Predictably, farmers are not easily swayed. Organic farming produces less, and the crops must be priced higher. Yet,...

    Patate Transportation

    The helpful owners of Hacienda Manteles can arrange your transfer from Quito.However, if you are stubbornly independent like me, you can reach Manteles almost all the way by bus. From the North (Quito), or the South (Cuenca), take a bus to Baños.Get off in Pelileo, half an hour before reaching Baños. In Pelileo, you can catch a white pickup, as...
