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.
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.
