Fresh and in season
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.
Hort de Bitem y Xerta
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".
