The farm is in hands of the Rodriguez – Luethje Family since 1959.
The initial road was built around 1965 to connect the farm with the town Union Juarez. Years of hard work had to be invested to rebuild the plantation and to modernize the wet and dry milling facilities. Nowadays the farm management takes care of weed control in a mainly manual way to protect the environment and the same goes for the shade management.
Muxbal recognizes that it is only with enough beneficial sun that they will get the optimum quantity and quality of the beans.
It is only with educated and well-prepared staff that all things work smoothly, from the picking of the ripe cherries, to the proper wet and dry process and many other activities required on the farm. Besides the housing and sanitary facilities, there is a school, a childcare nursery and a medical facility on the farm. Finca Muxbal is RFA certified, meaning it was produced following sustainable ecological and socio-economic criteria.
