What do you adopt?
Ecological orange tree from the family of Navel oranges. At the Hort de Bitem we have three main varieties: fukumoto (between November and December), navelina (from the end of December to January) and navel (from mid-January to the end of February). 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. __Boxes of 10kg of oranges__ * Fukumoto: is a round navelina orange with a thin skin. It is harvested at the beginning of November if the weather is favourable. When we begin to collect it has a slightly more acidic taste and its colour has greenish tones that change as time goes by. Its flavour at the best point of ripeness is intense with a good juice content. * Navelina: is an orange with a quite round shape and a good juice content. When it is well ripened it is very sweet and tasty. Depending on the year, we can have it from the end of November until January. * Navel Foyos: is an orange generally bigger than the previous ones. Its flavour is sweet and it has a high juice content which makes it exquisite both for consumption fresh and in juice. It ripens approximately between January and February.
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. This way we can avoid overproduction and fight food waste. * Reward Farmers who make an effort to use environmentally-friendly packaging and cultivation techniques.

I am the son and grandson of farmers, our family has always been linked to the countryside, growing vegetables, fruit trees, olives and citrus. But at the moment we only grow organic citrus. We decided to switch to organic farming because we used to do integrated agriculture and we decided to take a step forward and differentiate ourselves with a high quality product, respecting the environment and nutritional health as much as possible. We are the third generation of a family business dedicated to the production of citrus fruits. We produce and pack our fruit in the farm warehouse. I have always dedicated myself to agriculture because it motivates me and it satisfies me to see, on a day to day basis, how every plant that we take care of evolves until it yields the expected fruit in order to be able to deliver it to our customers. We are currently looking forward to joining CrowdFarming, so that we can deliver our organic citrus directly to you.

"I am a professional farmer and together with my family we have different farms located in our region: El Baix Ebre, located in the south of Catalonia. There we have different varieties of mandarins and oranges, so that our customers can enjoy our citrus fruits for as long as possible, starting at the end of October and ending at the end of June depending on each season. The future as a farmer I see in being able to deliver our products directly with the highest quality."

The "Hort de Bítem" farm is located on the left bank of the river Ebro, bordering the highest point with the pines of the area that extends from the "Sierra de Cardó y Boix". Over the centuries the Ebro River has deposited sediments on the banks of the river, making these areas ideal locations for cultivation. The farm has a level difference of about 35 meters from the river to where the pines start. From the highest point we have a good view of the region with the Ebro valley in its centre. The production of the farm is entirely organic since 2008. It covers an area of 8.5 hectares and we have different varieties of citrus fruit, always grown organically, such as Fukumoto, which is the first to be harvested at the beginning of November, and also the navels which will be harvested in January and February. Apart from the varieties from the CrowdFarming project we have others that allow us to extend the season and complement it with mandarins and lemons. On the same farm we have the farmhouse where my parents live and also the warehouse where we manage, prepare and send orders to our customers.. The farms we have are located within the Terres de l'Ebre Biosphere Reserve and at the same time we are surrounded by two natural parks "Ports de Tortosa" and "Delta de L'Ebre".
