Miguel Berasteen, Jesus Colina and Hector Bottger live and farm with their families at 1,990 meters above sea level on Cipizu hill. All 3 producers receive support from 7 Elements, which is focused on supporting sustainable livelihoods by revitalizing permaculture and other climate-smart agricultural practices in the Indigenous Yanesha community and beyond. 

Named after the nearby creek, the name Cipizu comes from the Arawak words “cipi”, meaning fish, and “zu”, meaning river.  The land where the three families farm has its own unique microclimate with specific ecological features and native plant species.
