History
The project

Adopt a mandarin tree from the farm "Barranc de Llop" in Antella (Spain) and receive your harvest in the form of organic Orri mandarins at home. Arantza will take care of your adoption and take its picture. You will also be able to download the adoption certificate, and if you wish, plan your visit to the farm. You do not enter into any long-term commitment: Although your adoption will be renewed automatically, you will always be informed in advance and may decide to cancel your adoption at any time as long as the preparation has not yet begun.

What do you adopt?

Adopt a mandarin tree that we cultivate following the Organic Farming regulations of the European Union since 2021. During the process of adoption you can choose a name which we will use to identify your mandarin tree. The Orri mandarin tree is a sturdy, upright and leafy tree. It’s dark green in colour and may have some small thorns. The trees were planted in 2011. The variety comes from Israel and requires authorisation for its growth, which limits the cultivated area in the world. Our mandarins are grown according to the organic production process. Our supervisory authority is the Valencian Committee for Organic Agriculture. We also hold GLOBAL G.A.P. certifications, including the GRASP and SPRING modules, in order to ensure agricultural and social management based on the most discerning good practices. We also have ECOVALIA social certification to further prove the ethical aspect of work on our farms. The productive life of a mandarin tree is around 25 years. For as long as you want to keep it and we can continue taking care of it, you can renew your adoption year after year. If your mandarin tree dies, we will replace it with no additional cost and assuring the delivery of your harvest from others. A mandarin tree from our farm produces an average of 60 kg each season. You do not have to commit to the consumption of the whole harvest. Each season you may decide what quantity to reserve and pay the maintenance in accordance with the amount you reserve. This way you will only pay for what you consume and we can plan and sell the remaining harvest amount to others.

What will you receive?

During the season, you will be able to receive the harvest that you are reserving now: a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 12 boxes. Once you paid for the adoption, you will be able to plan your shipments from your user account. Shipping format: __box with 5 kg of organic mandarins__ * Orri mandarins (March): oval shape; intense orange colour; soft, smooth, resistant and easy-to-peel skin; may contain pips; and high sugar content (14-15 degrees Brix) compensated with an acidity point that gives them a very fresh flavour * Organic farming certified by the European Organic Farming label since 2021 * They are not treated with wax or preservatives (you can use the peel) * Our trees are not a screw factory: each fruit is unique in appearance and size * One kilo contains between 8 and 10 fruits * If you keep them in a fresh and airy place, they can last 2 weeks in good condition (if you want them to last longer, you can keep them in the fridge)

When will you receive it?

You will receive your mandarins in the second half of March.

Why should you adopt?
Know who, how and where your food is produced. Source your food in a conscious, direct and consistent manner.
Buying without intermediaries allows the producer to obtain better prices. This helps generate better jobs and social standards in rural areas.
When you adopt something, you allow the producer to ensure the sale at a fixed price and to produce on demand. This also avoids wasting food that is grown without being sold.
It supports producers who strive for environmentally friendly packaging and cultivation practices.
