Some of History

The origins of this community date back to Prussia and their arrival in Mexico dates back more than a century ago, when they emigrated from Canada. Due to their pacifist culture and religious beliefs, they refrain from participating in armed conflicts, which led them to America during the world wars and finally to Chihuahua, where they were exempt from military service. Their form of prayer is manifested through work, as they contributed significantly to enriching the desert culture and transforming the local economy.


Mennonite food

Mennonite food combines German traditions with Mexican influences, highlighting the famous "Mennonite cheese" in dishes such as tacos and empanadas. In addition, they make their own salamis, bread, cookies and packaged vegetables. Mennonite women are industrious in the kitchen, preserving their generational culinary identity.
