From Maria Elena Video de Ovalle:
“In 1956 Dr. Jorge Vides Molina bought a piece of land named La Bolsa, it was given that name because it is located between large mountains. It has its own spring water and two rivers go across the property, leaving and island of the patio where we dry our coffee, the mill, farmhouse and school.
One of our strong features is that we have our own natural spring water which while we use it we are also able to donate the surplus the Municipio La Mesilla, located at the border of Mexico. You can actually see the tree-less line that is the border as you drive to the farm.
In the year 2002 we obtained second place at the national level of the Cup of Excellence with a rating of 94.98.
The farm also counts with a school in order to alphabetize the children of the farm. It also has a hydroelectric and we work with earthworms for organic matter.”
