My father has been working on this farm for 30 years and I joined the team to continue his work. We are in love with the countryside, the region and the tropical fruit. We have always trusted that this unique crop would thrive in our region. There were bad times when it was difficult to sell the fruit because in Europe most of us didn't know how to eat it, people ate it green and of course were horrified by it...it has taken a lot of effort to make it known and now at last its growth is unstoppable.
On the farm we schedule the tasks on a weekly basis. Every Monday we go around the farm to define the tasks that will be done that week, pruning, grafting, weeding, treatments, irrigation or harvesting. The fertilization is decided according to the time of the year and the needs of the plant, which are checked by quarterly analysis. Our motivation is to get closer to the final consumer and avoid all the extra costs that the fruit has until it reaches the customer, which is abusive in many cases.
The Atalaya estate, located in Velez-Malaga (Spain), is a small family run farm that is carefully looked after and whose name comes from being situated near an Atalaya, which is a military tower from the Arab period. We are also close to the largest Buddhist centre in southern Europe (Karma guen). Located in an area of agricultural tradition and related economies. The cultivation of avocado and mango is the biggest generator of employment in the area, even above tourism.
The water on our farm come from wells that are tested quarterly to ensure that they are not saline. A tree needs about 10m3 of irrigation water per year, in addition to the rain. The whole farm has drippers installed and we have a small lake to accumulate water
For the fertilization of the trees, only natural products are used in such a way that not only do we improve the quality of the fruit, but we do not harm the environment (water streams, soil, birds, bees etc). The grass is cut with mowers and left on the ground to improve the plant coverl. Within the farm we have approximately 15% of the area planted with other crops to generate a sustainable ecosystem of predators, thus improving the biodiversity of our farm. No waste is generated on the farm as the pruning remains are ground to improve the vegetable layer and the firewood is chopped.
In the farm we are three people who make possible that the avocado comes from the tree to your house. The "oldest" one of us has been on the farm for 35 years and is responsible for the healthy growth of the plant, fertilizing and watering, the two most important cultural tasks in the case of the avocado. The other two of us can and do pick the fruit when the time comes. The avocado is harvested by hand, so those that are very damaged by branches are sold to the industry to make guacamole or creams.
