This document discusses the experience and contributions on rural development promoted during more than 25 years by the Plan Meseta Tarasca of the Colegio de Postgraduados among Purepecha farmers and indigenous in the center of the State of Michoacan, Mexico. In addition, the causes of the Plan's closure in the context of the neoliberalization in Mexico, its transcendence in science as well as on small farmers' and indigenous development in the contemporary world are exposed.
