Ranch news


Education and Youth

The Vía Orgánica Ranch has become a living school. Enriching and formative experiences are generated daily, not only for the people who come to visit but also for the team that collaborates on the project. In particular for young people who currently work and learn in this space. 

We have a very varied group of young people who participate in the project: from 17-year-old girls and boys to students from different universities doing their internships. This mix of young people creates mutual inspiration and learning for life. Several boys and girls work in the maguey plantation, in the production of vegetables gardens, in the management of farm animals, in the production of fodder and organic fertilizers. 

Thanks to these experiences, some have started their garden at home, doing layering, others have been encouraged to study agriculture or biology and careers related to the environment. In this way they will spread this enthusiasm and love for the environment to young people in their communities. 

The young women of Vía Orgánica are a fundamental part of the project and their collective participation, creativity and energy make them environmental leaders. United to generate solutions from the Jalpa Valley and the eight surrounding communities. 


The Mexican Government issued and published a new presidential decree to revoke and no longer grant authorizations for the use of genetically modified corn, specifically in products intended for human consumption, as well as the use of the herbicide glyphosate, with a gradual transition. This in response to pressure on the first provision in this regard issued in 2020.

Mercedes López, director of the Asociación de Consumidores Orgánicos, Vía Orgánica in CDMX, and Regeneration International, spoke about the fight that is being done to prohibit the use of transgenic corn in Mexico. We invite you to watch the interview here.

Our member of Vía Orgánica, Diana Hoogesteger, visited and interviewed Mario Pedraza, in the Sierra Gorda of Querétaro, where she had the opportunity to see how this ranch called Suelo Vivo practices regenerative livestock, because that is the result. We invite you to read the interview by clicking here.


This year come and visit for the first time or return to the Agroecological Park project in the Jalpa Valley in San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato. Put together your package: you can include delicious foods with nixtamalized corn tortillas and fresh, colorful salads from the garden. Experience a guided tour visiting all areas of the ranch and learn how the farm works. You can choose to stay in one of our adobe cabins and end the day with a campfire in the gazebo, at the top of the ranch.

Every weekend we have activities for children where they can plant, feed the animals and even harvest their greens for salad. 

This month come and take a look at our store and discover the variety of delicious and healthy products available. We have seeds and plants for sale so that you can grow too! Then go to the restaurant and try any dish with nixtamalized corn tortillas, a green juice and some fresh greens that will make your day. 

Remember that your visit supports environmental education and care for the planet.

Store and Restaurant

In the store we have a wide variety of products from the basic basket, fruits and vegetables, cheese, salad, cereals and even processed foods ready to heat when you get home. Thanks to the supply of products in the store, it has been possible to maintain a network of producers who have made their way with other stores, restaurants and various consumers. Meet our producers! Click here to see a list .

Our Vía Orgánica restaurant offers delicious local, natural and organic dishes. It is located inside the Agrecology Park, on the way to Jalpa. It has a menu  “from farm to table” which raises awareness from the palate about the origin of our food, the methods or techniques used in its production and about the people behind the products: teachers, meteorologists, ecologists, guardians, whose purpose is to produce food taking care of the earth. 

We are here to serve you both in the store and in the restaurant daily from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm.

March 22: World Water Day World Water

World Water Day is celebrated every March 22 with the aim of drawing attention to its importance and also to defend the sustainable management of water resources. For this reason, this year 2023 the motto is “The importance of water”, as a premise to remember the relevance of fresh water to which about 2,200 million people still cannot access.  

We recommend the documentary Mission Blue available on Netflix, which tells the story of oceanographer Sylvia Earle as she travels the globe on an urgent mission to highlight the dire state of Earth’s oceans.
