Cajamarca: Porcon Farm

The evangelical community that runs the Atahualpa Jerusalén Cooperative or Porcón Farm – a farm dating back to 1535 – offers visitors a chance to share community work with local farmers.

Over its 12 thousand hectares it has organized a successful environmental, agricultural, forestry and dairy production plan without losing its typical culture. It provides good quality services for travelers, and is close to archeological sites of interest and the Highlands Inca Trail.
