What do you adopt?
Adopt 150 m² of our organic wheat field and receive Khorasan (Triticum turgidum var. turanicum) wheat flour directly from our stone mill. While the crop is growing we will manually remove the ears that do not correspond to the variety of Khorasan wheat that we want to offer. In doing so we have achieved a 97.6% purity of our crop (certified). Once harvested and threshed, we take the grain to our stone mill and pack the flour in paper bags. Organic farming. You can download the corresponding certificate in the section of seals below.
What will you receive?
5 x white flour (1kg paper bags) 5 x wholemeal flour (1kg paper bags) Variedad: Khorasan wheat (Triticum turgidum var. turanicum). Khorasan wheat is one of the oldest varieties of wheat we know, along with spelt. The Khorasan wheat grain is very hard and has a larger size than common wheat. It has a sweet and pleasant taste reminiscent of butter. Compared to common wheat, it has a higher concentration of protein and lipids.
When will you receive it?
Please, check the deadline for participating in this project (deadline for adoption) below. As of this date the Farmer will start preparing the orders that are to be shipped. You may select the delivery date of your box as suggested by the Farmer at check-out.
Why should you adopt?

I am a farmer by conviction, all my previous generations, or at least those I can remember, have dedicated themselves to agriculture. My son Tales also wants to follow in the footsteps of the agricultural tradition and we entered this adventure together. We believe that conventional agriculture based on synthesis chemistry is damaging our land, the environment, biodiversity and our health, so in 2008 we decided to initiate the change and began to certify our plots in Organic Farming. We combined the traditional techniques and advice from our grandparents with the collaboration with the Polytechnic University of Madrid to move our crops forward. As a result of this collaboration, we participated in the LIFE+ Crops for better Soil project, whose objective was to demonstrate that organic farming methods can return carbon content to vulnerable soils and make them economically viable again. The project started in 2011 and was awarded the 2018 Green Awards. During the five years of the project we were able to gain very satisfactory knowledge that gives us the security to offer our products with full guarantees. We join CrowdFarming for a fair price for our product and to save both economic and energy costs. I am worried about the future of my profession because climate change generates many unknowns: will we be able to stop it?

“We live off the land and for the land so that many more generations can say the same thing. I am a lifelong farmer. My father taught me how to work and love the countryside since I was a child. In my environment they call me “Pincheto”, a common name for the goldfinch in my land. My main hobby is caring for my hives. I currently have 120 LANGSTROTH hives scattered throughout the nearby mountains where I produce Alcarria honey. The hives barely move from their settlement except to pollinate our own crops (chickpeas, almonds...).”

The name “BioVallega” consists of two parts: “Bio” refers to the fact that all the plots we cultivate have been certified in Organic Agriculture since 2008 and “Vállega” refers to an Andalusian settlement on the Tagus River near our village. We are located in Illana, within the region of La Alcarria in the south of the central Iberian plateau. It is an area where dry crops alternate with small orchards around the numerous rivers and streams that run through it. Apart from the crops, the presence of slopes, hills and cliffs near the streams favours the presence of a great diversity of aromatic flora which has led to the introduction of apiaries in the area a while ago.
