I am an enthusiastic robotics engineer, passionate for nature and the integration of technology in agriculture. At my ranch you will find unique attractions such as the world´s first intelligent chicken nesting trailer. Although it is fully technological, it provides a humane life to the chickens as they are always in liberty, it also provides rich chicken manure to our fields and the peace of mind to be connected to it 24/7 via cell phone. There is also a 6500 sqft green house where we try to grow part of our diet. Recently we have planted over 1200 trees, setup bee hives and built a Temazcal to nurture the land and our bodies. I truly believe that any workawayers would have amazing knowledge and experiences to share to our community. What are you waiting for? Come and spend time in this magical place!
There is currently 1 local employee, Mr. Hipolito, he is helping in general activities at the ranch, gardening, cleaning, maintenance, etc. He needs some help!!
