This lot comes to us from producer Gaspar Hurtado Castro who owns the farm Finca Acsa in the Yanatile Valley of Peru's Cusco region. Gaspar is a member of the co-operative Valle Inca, which functions as a producer group that buys parchment from farmers, reinvesting premiums in the community’s infrastructure to help them continue to improve quality. Valle Inca is managed by Prudencio Vargas Saenz who is greatly known for his honesty, trustworthiness, dedication and genuinely engaging with producers goals and concerns.
He also pays higher prices than farmers had access to prior to the founding of Valle Inca, which has helped to improve quality as well as overall community health over time. Member-wise, Valle Inca is growing fast with 101 farmers currently in the fold. It’s no surprise that more and more farmers want to work with Valle Inca in the community.
