The project

Adopt an apricot tree from the farm "Le Verger Bio de Véronique" in Rivesaltes (France) and receive your harvest in the form of organic apricot nectar at home. Véronique will take care of your adoption and take its picture. Also, you will be able to download the adoption certificate and, if you wish, plan your visit to the farm. As the production coming from one apricot tree is big, the adoption is shared among various people. If you wish to have a bigger share, you may adopt more than once. You do not enter into any long-term commitment: once you receive your harvest and you enjoyed the experience, you may decide to renew and extend the adoption.

What do you adopt?

Adopt an apricot tree that we cultivate under the Organic Farming regulations of the European Union since 2016. We offer you to adopt an apricot tree of a french variety : the Farlis, it’s the last variety that we harvest on our farm. This tree has grown organically since his plantation in 2016. Those apricots have never seen any chemical products. It’s possible to grow organic apricots thanks to the Roussillon climate (south of France) because the weather is hot, dry and very windy. This climate protects our fruits from the major diseases and produces apricots full of sun. A tree produces around 30 kg of apricots which means around 30 bottles of apricot nectar after processing. In this orchard, we have planted the late variety “Farlis”, the last one we harvest. Those fruits are harvested during August, and every week we only harvest the fruits that are fully ripe. Beautiful fruits are quickly sold on the fresh market, whereas fruits that are damaged are processed into juice by a local craftsman. Besides the organic certification, our orchards are also Vergers Eco-Responsables, Global G.A.P. (certifications about the good agricultural practices) GRASP (social certification) and IFS (certification of the packing station). The productive life of an apricot tree is around 15 years. For as long as you want to keep it and we can continue taking care of it, you can renew your adoption year after year. If your apricot tree dies, we will replace it with no additional cost and assuring the delivery of your harvest from others. Each apricot tree is adopted by 5 CrowdFarmers who receive a box with 4.5 l of organic apricot nectar.

What will you receive?

Each season we will send you a box with: 6 x__ organic apricot nectar__ (75 cl/glass bottle) Farlis is a very perfumed variety, sweet and with a very low acidity, which make it a real gourmet product. Apricot puree is too thick to be filled in a bottle like that. Thus we produce a nectar: a diluted fruit puree. Usually, the nectar composition is : 55 - 60% of organic apricot puree, 35 - 40% of water and 5% of organic sugar. Our nectar contains no preservatives or additives. Our juices are flash-pasteurized, allowing you to keep it during 3 years without taste alterations. Once open, the nectar needs to be put in the fridge and be consumed within one week. Breakfast with this gourmand nectar will have you starting the day in a good mood! Or can be consumed in a cocktail with some rum.

When will you receive it?

The Farlis variety is harvested during August. We need some time to process the organic apricots into nectar and bottle it. Bottles will be ready to send in September.

Why should you adopt?
Know who, how and where your food is produced. Source your food in a conscious, direct and consistent manner.
Buying without intermediaries allows the producer to obtain better prices. This helps generate better jobs and social standards in rural areas.
When you adopt something, you allow the producer to ensure the sale at a fixed price and to produce on demand. This also avoids wasting food that is grown without being sold.
It supports producers who strive for environmentally friendly packaging and cultivation practices.
