At our farm in Mexico, which encompasses around 63 hectares of crop area, we grow 21 hectares of corn every year. Everything that is harvested is used to feed our children and animals. We also have two greenhouses where we produce tomatoes, lettuce, spinach, cabbages, cucumbers, and many other fresh vegetables that keep our children's diet rich and full of proteins and vitamins.
We use the corn that we grow to produce about 2,000 fresh tortillas daily for our children and to feed our pigs, sheep and chicken, which we raise as another food source.
For our animals we also need medicines for when they get sick, special food for them to grow healthy and other nutrients that they do not get from the corn.
Getting our land ready for the crops is not an easy task; we need specialized workers who can run the tractors, harvesters and seed machines and also our greenhouses in order to achieve our largest goal which is having healthy and happy kids.
