The project

Adopt a grapefruit tree from the farm "Bio Agrumi Monasteri" in Floridia SR (Italy) and receive your harvest in the form of Organic grapefruits at home. Angelo 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 grapefruit tree that we cultivate under the Organic Farming regulations of the European Union since 2010. During the process of adoption you can choose a name that we will engrave on a plaque and hang on your tree. We have been growing citrus fruits in these areas for over 40 years and we are still a family-run farm with me, Valeria, my wife, Renato and Sara, my two children who live and work in the farm with me. We have been growing grapefruits in these areas since 2010, making the grapefruit our youngest citrus addition to the farm. The local climate and vicinity to the sea, makes it the perfect environment for this citrus variety to grow well and reach a very high quality. The total production of our grapefruits amounts to about 20% of the total production. The productive life of a grapefruit tree is around 30 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 grapefruit tree dies, we will replace it with no additional cost and assuring the delivery of your harvest from other trees. Each grapefruit tree bears an average of 93.5kg per season.

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 11 boxes. Once you paid for the adoption, you will be able to plan your shipments from your user account. Shipping format: __8.5 kg box of grapefruits Star Ruby variety__ * Star Ruby (beginning of November until mid-April): rounded shape with a very juicy pulp of a rich pink colour, without seeds, has a very pleasant bitter/sweet taste * Organic farming certified by the European Organic Farming seal since 2000 * Harvest on request, shipped without wax or preservative treatments in a cardboard box without plastics * We do not store the fruit in cold chambers, they go directly from the tree to your doorstep * One kilo contains between 2 and 4 fruits * If you keep them in a fresh and airy place, they can last 2-3 weeks in good condition (if you want them to last longer, you can keep them in the fridge)

When will you receive it?

The Farmer will collect your harvest on demand and just before shipment so you will receive it fresh, not treated with wax or other preservatives. Harvesting happens from October to 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.
