    [Please respond to host in Spanish]

    We are a small cooperative farm since 2011 in the south of the state of Hidalgo, inspired by permaculture as a model. Currently we grow traditionally, free of pesticides and chemicals corn, beans, gourds, squash, maguey and nopal and some fruit trees in the region, we also planted hundreds of white cedar and thousands pine trees, to produce oxygen and reforest our community . Luis, the project leader and main host is 66 years old, yoga practitioner for more than 20 years; Mariza, his wife and hostess is 62 years old, and is an excellent cook. Both cooperative members, vegetarians, do not drink alcohol and are very healthy people, with much experience to share.

    The community is very quiet. The farm is located on farmland which has existed since pre-Hispanic times, so read the eye, because you will find hundreds of fragments of pottery and obsidian from the ancient inhabitants. The climate is temperate to cold, depending on the time of year and yes, a lot of sun, so it is always good to have a coat and hat on hand. Nearby you will find old pulque haciendas and within a radius of 90 kms some archaeological sites of great importance such as Teotihuacan, Cacaxtla, Cholula and cities like Puebla, Pachuca, Tlaxcala and of course Mexico City, you are last no more than 1:45 hrs . By car.

    La comunidad es muy tranquila. La granja se ubica en tierras de cultivo las cuales han existido desde época prehispánica, así que alista el ojo, porque encontrarás cientos de fragmentos de cerámica y obsidiana de los antiguos habitantes. El clima es de templado a frio, dependiendo la época del año y eso sí, mucho sol, así que siempre es bueno tener un abrigo y sombrero a la mano. Cerca encontraras antiguas haciendas pulqueras y en un radio de 90 kms algunos sitios arqueológicos de gran importancia como Teotihuacan, Cacaxtla, Cholula y ciudades como Puebla, Pachuca, Tlaxcala y desde luego la Ciudad de México, estás últimas a no más de 1:45 hrs. en automóvil.
