Gloria Isabel Díaz
My name is Gloria Díaz and I am responsible for production at the La Atalaya farm. I come from a family of farmers of four brothers, but I was the only one who fell in love with the field thanks to my father, a man of few words but who treated each plant with affection and as a living organisms, "older than humans" he used to say. I was born in an agricultural setting where my family worked for long summer hours. During my adolescence I sweated and worked hard the land with my father, while my love and respect for it grew.
The area where the farm is located is an area with a subtropical climate, a small oasis in Europe. I love working on a farm that has been organic since its origins, where mangoes and avocados have been cultivated since the 70s, being one of the first farms to grow this type of fruit in the region. Due to the environmentally friendly vision of the first owners, they decided to start organic farming from the beginning, even when there were no certificates.
I personally believe that each fruit is a small miracle, every year the flowers that are pollinated by insects work, and I would like to share this miracle with the world. CrowdFarming gives me the opportunity to do it and earn a living, doing what I love to do which is growing and caring for trees. Currently I am responsible for production on the farm, we schedule tasks weekly. Every Monday the farm is reviewed to organize the tasks that will be done during the week: pruning, grafting, clearing, treatments, irrigation or collection. The fertilization is decided based on the time of year and the needs of the plant that are verified by quarterly analysis. Each fruit that reaches a CrowdFarmer will have been harvested at its perfect ripening point, being carefully packaged so that it arrives with all the love that we put at your table. With the advantage of avoiding extra costs that the fruit usually has until it reaches the end customer.
La Atalaya farm is a lovingly cared family farm whose name comes from being located near a watchtower, which is a tower from the Arab era with a military character. We are close to the largest Buddhist center in southern Europe (Karma Guen). Located in an area of agricultural tradition and economy related to the sector. Avocado and mango cultivation is the largest generator of employment in the area, even above tourism. Our family of humble origin has been able to keep a job thanks to the cultivation of these delicious fruits.
On average, each tree on our farm, whether mango or avocado, needs about 7m3 of irrigation water per year, in addition to that provided by the rain. The entire farm has high-performance drippers installed and we have a pond to collect water. The water on our farm comes from wells that are analyzed quarterly as quality control to ensure that they are not salinized.
For the fertilization of the fruit, only validated natural products are used for use in organic farming, so that not only do we improve the quality of the fruit, but we do not harm the environment. The grass is controlled by cutting it with pruners and it is kept on the ground to improve the amount of organic matter and fertility. Within the farm we have approximately 15% of the area planted with other crops to generate a diverse and sustainable ecosystem that encourages the proliferation of predators, thus improving the biodiversity of our farm. On the farm no waste is generated since the pruning remains are ground to improve the topsoil and the firewood is chopped.
On the farm we are three workers who make it possible for the avocado and mango to reach the house from the tree. The oldest of us has been on the farm for 35 years and is responsible for keeping the plant healthy, fertilizing and watering, the two most important cultural tasks in the case of avocado. The other two prune and pick the fruit when the time comes. Avocado and mango are harvested manually, so those heavily damaged by twigs are sold to the industry to make guacamole, creams, juices, or jams.
