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 late 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 __Nadorcott__ and __Tango__ varieties of mandarin trees are very productive and robust, with a very straight growth and lack of thorns. They ripen between January and early April. The trees were planted in 2011 and have been organic since 2021. They are hybrid varieties that require authorisation to be planted. Tangos were first commercialised in 2007 following studies carried out by the University of California, Riverside. Nadorcotts first appeared in Morocco in 1988, in the Beni Mellal region. Both are protected varieties that require a licence to be grown. Our farm is certified by the GlobalGAP Good Agricultural Practices protocol, which guarantees the food safety of our clementines and the use of environmentally friendly agricultural practices. What's more, we comply with the SPRING standard, which shows our commitment to sustainable water management. We also obtained the ECOVALIA social certification to further prove ethical workplace practices 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 60kg 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: __5kg box of organic late mandarins__ * Nadorcott and Tango mandarins: Flattened shape, with a very bright reddish-orange skin and easy to peel; they contain a large amount of juice and the skin of the segments is very thin, making them very pleasant to eat; their sugar content ranges between 11 and 13 degrees Brix and they may contain some seeds * Organic farming certified by the European Organic Farming label since 2021 * Harvest on request, shipped without wax or preservative treatments in a cardboard box without plastics * 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'll receive your mandarins from the first fortnight of February until the end of April.

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.
