-We have been here since 2011 it is a family business that we started, we have dairy products- For people who do not know absolutely nothing of the Mennonites a brief summary of how it is. - We are a branch of the Anabaptists which is a movement that came out of the reform in the 1500s. From what I understand you have an emphasis on living very simply, not having much technology, cars and things like that.- It is because of the teachings of Jesus. He taught us that this is how we have to live.

Great project, we are with a great friend, Natan comes from far from Florida. They established this business together with the church to provide employment and to provide for the family and the Church here in Siguatepeque with great flavor and as you can see a great market for all the Siguatepequeño people.
