Freedom Orchard is the brainchild of Dr. John Cobin, who is widely acclaimed as an expert on Chile. It is a collaborative effort with his partners, Germán Eyzaguirre and Frank Szabo.
The sustainable community is modeled after “Galt’s Gulch”* from Ayn Rand’s novel Atlas Shrugged. It will be a place where freedom-loving people, from any country, can live as they see fit while enjoying the fruits of their own labor. The community will be supported by a network of organic farms interspersed among home sites owned by Chileans as well as ex-pats.
* However, please do not confuse us with “Galt’s Gulch Chile”. This name is hyped by TDV and is in no way connected with Freedom Orchard.
