Small farms in Otavalo, Ecuador

A series of small farms fill the foreground as mountains loom in the background. The farmhouses are small, white-washed structures with tiled roofs.

Ecuador is an ecologically-diverse nation, and its products reflect the area where they were produced. In the east, tropical fruits and rainforest products abound. In the west, the coastal plantations produce sugar, rice, and bananas. In the highlands of Ecuador, in the center of the country, small farms produce grains, wheat, and corn.
