The other day we headed out Barton Creek to my friends property to check it out. At first I was a little curious as to why my friend Mike bought a property a few miles away from town; but as we drove there I found out why. Driving towards Barton Creek all the way to his property was a site you must see. At every turn you could see peeking hills fill with a diverse blanket of colors of green on all the hills and valleys of the golden oranges orchard in Cool Shade. Cool Shade is a Mennonite community of farmers who work and live there. Further in, Mennonite family community was more visual. You could see the men farming, women working and some children helping others playing. All of them were wearing their traditional clothes and was unique to see that they are still Mennonites that keep their traditions and culture alive.
It was a hot but beautiful day! We were out and about investigating land and available properties for purchase. We decided to go check out a friends farm in the El Pilar area of Belize just outside of Bullet Tree Village. And Wow are we glad we did. We were hot and tired, but anxious to see the landscape of Belize and show our friends - future expatriates from Arizona - what Belize has to offer. We had the pleasure of viewing a beautiful farm, peering over the horizon at the magnificent views, and meeting a couple Belizean cowboys who showed us their gracious hospitality.
