Cattleman, 60 years old, love trees, learning regenerative technics for the soil. Married, two young sons, son & daughter. Want to be an entrepeneur in ecotourism and cultural travel. Motorcycling.
We are located in a stunning landscape near Guadalajara, México, (1.5 hours away) in the area of Ixtlahuacán Del Río, which is about 15 minutes from there, and we want to establish an edible forest around the house and share the experience and the view. We need eco solutions to supply energy and dwell to visitors, also to give them attention, food, fun and recreation. Regenerative agriculture is a goal in order to produce food for the people and the animals in the farm.
We have this place since more than 50 years, it's a huge portion of land of about 1000 acres and almost no capital, it is a very valuable nature retreat near a very big city, and we want to preserve for future generations.

The owners are city people but the personnel in the farm are campesinos, we would have a great opportunity to work with them and learn from them. Also share our knowledge between us in order to establish a new relation with nature. We are located in a recently declared Natural Protected Area with plenty of flora, fauna and fungi.
