QSustainable Food Production
Rancho Margot generates well over half of all food consumed by workers, residents and guests onsite. Often producing well over 75% and we aim for more. We do not purchase processed foods of any kind. Mayonnaise, mustard and ketchup are all made from scratch as are all of our sauces. Vinegar is made from our own bananas and plantains. Oils are either local 100% coconut or sunflower, or imported 100% olive . Our breads typically contain gluten but we are always glad to make special gluten free preparations upon request. We are experimenting with in-country, chemical free tubers for gluten-free flour all the time. We harvest fresh vegetables and fruits by hand, harvest/finish all dairy products and butcher 100% of meats, all within walking distance of our kitchen. The processing that occurs between our farm and kitchen is minimal; the attention to production and detail is extensive and ensures freshness and quality. Needless to say, it also greatly reduces waste. Just take a peek into our kitchen. It’s easy as our kitchen’s open layout invites you to watch us work. With one refrigerator and one freezer, we have mastered the art of fresh, right-sizing meal preparation.
QSustainable Energy Production
Rancho Margot generates electricity onsite with two hydroelectric generators. We also have a small percentage of solar installed currently, we recognize this sector of generation technology will become an increasingly larger percentage of our energy mix as we go forward.
Complex composting system collects all food, vegetative and solid animal waste that, with the aid of beneficial micro-organisms, decomposes and is then used as an organic fertilizer to eliminate the need for chemical fertilizers. Originally, we heated our water through an extensive compost hot water heater installation just below Bungalows 4 - 7. In order to meet the demands of guests for super hot water shower, we have since installed an alternate electric system, leaving us with more compost for our expanding gardens!
