Rancho Mazatepec is multigenerational family business with 250 heads grazing. Only some bulls are intended for meat production. We truly care about our animals and our goal is the make them live stress-free possible. We own 370 acres or 150 Ha of fertile land where we grow corn, alfalfa, wheat, and other kinds of forages. I am building a team young-working people who are willing to bring to life this farm again.Because I am the new person in charge of the farm currently our goal is to apply the lean manufacturing concept in our farm the 5 s and the kaizen method so any experience with lean method will be more than well received.
Work in the farm could vary from setting up the electric fence in the field, feeding calves or calves, organize, clean or repair some room in the building.
Lodging is in the main house your accommodation is in a private room with clean mattresses, sheets, pillows shared bathroom with hot shower, WIFI.
Food preparation and groceries for vegetarian or vegan diets could be arranged if you let me know in advance, once a week we go grocery shopping and could provide anything we can get in the nearest town, in the house we have a cook that could prepare different meals as requested by the guests.
