These farms in Guizhou Province, China, are traditional and rural. Our private guide, who took us on hikes from village to village, told us that he played cowboys and indians among the husk stacks as a child.
In the distance are traditional rice terraces, but another ubiquitous crop is the red chili pepper, which you can see drying on porches everywhere.
Rice is grown in broad fields as well as terraces. These fields will be used for other crops, such as canola, once the rice is harvested.
