What do you adopt?
Lemon tree of the organic Primofiori variety. Cultivation is done with the utmost respect for the environment, so that our production has the least impact on our planet and keeps the land and water free of contaminants. Organic farming. You can download the corresponding certificate in the section of seals below. Each {variety} bears an average of {masterUnitsMax}kg per season. You can decide how many kilos you would like to reserve from your tree and pay the maintenance costs based on the chosen quantity. This helps the Farmer to plan and sell the remaining harvest amount from your tree to others.
What will you receive?
During the season you will be receiving the quantity of harvest you reserved in the adoption process. __6kg box of organic Primofiori lemons__ The Primofiori lemon is characterized by: * thin skin * medium size and spherical-oval shape * without neck at the base * short and pointed mamelon * contains seeds You will receive lemons produced under the organic certification and that do not receive any post-harvest treatment so you can consume the skin of the lemon. One kilo of lemons contains 7 to 9 pieces. You can enjoy your lemons for at least three weeks. If you don't keep them in the fridge the skin will dry out but inside they will remain juicy. Wrapped in a paper bag they keep better.
When will you receive it?
Please, check the deadline for participating in this project (deadline for adoption) below. As of this date shipments begin. You can plan all the deliveries once you completed the adoption process. 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.
Why should you adopt?
* Learn who produces your food, how and where. Receive your food in a conscious manner. * Buy directly from the farmer. Help to generate wealth and better jobs in the rural areas. * Plan ahead and enable the Farmer to produce on demand.

When my father died I decided to dedicate myself to the care of the farm, otherwise the land would probably end up being abandoned. So in 2007 I left teaching at the university and took charge of everything and the first thing I decided was that the crop had to be organic, because I can't see any other way to produce the food we consume. Since 2010 we have the seal of organic production. Because I care not only about people's health, but also about the health of the planet. We are putting it at risk because of the ways and customs that we have developed in our society, in which the only thing that has counted is progress at any cost, even risking our own health and the survival of the planet itself. We have learned a lot and now we only need the weather to help us and not be against us. My children are joining the project now and we are very excited about the opportunity that CrowdFarming gives us, to be able to send you our lemons so that you can enjoy their quality just like we do.

"Besides the fact that it had to be organic, from the first moment I dedicated myself to growing crops I decided that I had to be able to get our lemons as directly as possible to the people who were going to consume them. I want to avoid the chain of intermediaries who make the product more expensive and often mean long storage times that do not benefit the quality of the fruit. And that is precisely what CrowdFarming offers me!"

Our farm is a family farm, which has been growing lemons since the 80s. The farm is named "El Carrascal" after the great hundred-year-old holm oak (Quercus ilex) that grows next to our storeroom. It is located in the municipality of Fortuna, Murcia, a lemon-growing area par excellence in Spain. Cultivated lemons in our Mediterranean climate conditions provide an adequate and valued level of acidity. In addition it is an area with a low risk of frost which makes the lemon tree develop very well. Therefore, in this area the whole environment is a general landscape of lemons. In particular, our lemon trees are traditional trees, more than forty years old, grafted on the foot of bitter orange, which gives them their high quality. The switch to organic farming was difficult, due to the lack of general experience and because there were additional problems, including a strong frost that devastated the trees and we almost had to start again from scratch. So it has been very difficult for us to get the farm as it is right now, but I think we have finally got what we wanted. In addition to lemons, we have recently planted grapefruits, oranges and mandarins, which will soon begin to produce as well. The standards for our varieties are mainly quality at the expense of slow growth.
