    Description

    Hello and thank you so much for your interest in our farm!

    We have a son (12 years old), 2 dogs and 2 cats. Our farm Las Ceibas is a certified organic farm with an area of 7400mts2 (1.8 acres). We grow a wide variety of vegetables and some fruits. We have 120 egg laying chickens who roam freely in a large space during the day and sleep safely inside at night. We also cultivate Esenia Foétida worms in 6 beds (each bed 3x20mts). The worms produce vermicompost which we use to fertilize the farm soil and feed the chickens. Part of the vermicompost is for sale as well. In Oaxaca city we have a store where we sell organic products and a cafetería named Xiguela.
    To get a video impression of our farm- ask us for a video.
