Cultivating together an organic relationship with the land
La Mierda de Vaca is an initiative dedicated to rescue the old, the past that is impregnated with wisdom and full of values; where the bio-power of the humble people of the countryside is combined with the new that technology offers us; without losing the sensitivity towards the search for the fraternal and self-determination to decide the production of basic crops to survive with dignity. It is a present that breaks with the paradigm where they want us to believe that only the giant agribusiness is useful, where everything depends on a technologically imposed and predatory sequence. La Mierda de Vaca seeks the rescue of the simple, the independence of external resources, the expression of knowledge made understanding from the hands of thousands of peasant families that still re-exist in the countryside.
