Using Zapotec agricultural methods, your Villagers gather from Berry Bushes, Mills, Farms, Plantations, Cherry Orchards, and Rice Paddies faster.
—In-game description

Zapotec Food of the Gods is a technology in Age of Empires III: The WarChiefs that can be researched at a Trading Post built on a Zapotec settlement. Once researched, it increases the food gather rate of Settlers, Coureurs des Bois, Settler Wagons, and Villagers by 10%.


When stacked with Home City Cards and improvements to increase food gather rate, Zapotec Food of the Gods can compensate the slower gather rate of Berry Bushes, Cherry Orchards, Mills, and Farms, particularly in Treaty games.
