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
We have named the farm Hort de Xerta, because it is one of the various fields that we have and belongs to the municipality of Xerta. It is located on the right bank of the river Ebro, bordering it with a perimeter of lush and wild vegetation typical of the riverside forest. Through the center of the farm passes the irrigation channel that carries the water to the rice fields of the Ebro delta. It is also bordered by a ravine called "Xivelli" with a sugar cane vegetation that at the same time provides a natural protective barrier to prevent pollution from other non-organic crops.
There are about 6 hectares of citrus of different varieties on the farm. The soil is a sandy-clay that has been deposited by the river at different times of flooding, so it is a very fertile soil. On the property we also find our restored country house of 480 m2 with a vine over 100 years old at the entrance, under whose shade you can have a chat, a good meal etc ... and you can also enjoy a good summer bath in the pool located opposite it.
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 of "Ports de Tortosa" and "Delta de l'Ebre".
