Support Our Farm
NPH Mexico - Sustainability

Maria Jose and her little brother enjoy learning about the greenhouse.

At our farm in NPH Mexico, we grow 21 hectares of corn every year. We use the corn to produce about 3,000 fresh tortillas every day for our children, and also contribute to the diet used to feed our pigs, sheep and chickens, which we keep to provide fresh and organic meat to our children. By growing our own corn, we make a strong effort to become more self-sufficient and lower our spending on food.

Each year we also plant and harvest flowers and grains, such as peanuts, hibiscus flowers, sunflowers, giant marigold flowers and amaranth. This food is consumed by season i.e. the peanuts are consumed in the Christmas season (December); our jicama and sunflower seeds are planted and consumed throughout the year; while the marigold flower is planted in early June and harvested in early October, and then used for decoration for Day of the Dead celebrations.

Your support for this project is reflected directly in our children's nutrition and wellbeing. Many children that join our home come displaying signs of severe malnutrition due to the poverty in which they lived. Help us provide them with nutritious vegetables and meat by supporting this project.
