What do you adopt?
Adopt {publicVariety} from our farm in {cityfarm} ({countryFarm}) grown without pesticides and nourished with organic fertilizers. During the process of adoption you can choose a name that we will engrave on a plaque and hang on your tree. Each {variety} bears an average of {masterUnitsMax}kg per season. You can decide how many kilos you would like to reserve from your tree and pay the maintenance costs based on the chosen quantity. This helps the Farmer to plan and sell the remaining harvest amount from your tree to others. The trees are approximately 30 years old. These oranges can prolong their productive life for many more years if given favorable conditions and are not subjected to any kind of excess. In fact, artificial mineral fertilizers have been eliminated from my orchard. Organic matter is provided to nourish them, we have eliminated the use of herbicides to help improve living conditions in the soil and in terms of managing pests and diseases I decided to do without any insecticide or unnatural fungicide.
What will you receive?
During harvest season you can progressively receive the quantity of {production} harvest that you reserve on the moment of adoption. Shipping format: __10 kg box of Valencia Late Oranges__ The Valencia Late orange is one of the late oranges par excellence. * Medium orange between 150 and 200 g per unit * Intense orange color that may turn pale orange in the case of a very late harvest * Harvesting from the beginning of April to the middle of June. * It retains its acidity until the end of its ripening process, making it a perfect variety not only for fresh consumption, but also for preparing delicious juices during summer. By keeping your oranges in a dry and cool place you will be able to enjoy them for at least two weeks. This, together with the particular characteristics of the soil and irrigation water makes the fruit grown in Les Lloses very special.
When will you receive it?
Please, check the deadline for participating in this project (deadline for adoption) below. As of this date shipments begin. You can plan all the deliveries once you completed the adoption process. The Farmer will collect your harvest on demand and just before shipment so you will receive it fresh, not treated with wax or other preservatives.
Why should you adopt?
* Learn who produces your food, how and where. Receive your food in a conscious manner. * Buy directly from the farmer. Help to generate wealth and better jobs in the rural areas. * Plan ahead and enable the Farmer to produce on demand. This way we can avoid overproduction and fight food waste. * Reward Farmers who make an effort to use environmentally-friendly packaging and cultivation techniques.

I spent all my childhood in Les Lloses, I always enjoyed the contact with nature. When I had to decide what to study, I opted for economics, but when I started working I immediately realised that it wasn't what I wanted to do in life. I took various agricultural trainings and I began to collaborate with my father in the cultivation of the land on the farm. Little by little, I have changed the way I cultivate, leaving behind the intensive systems based on synthetic products and betting on processes that adapt to my objective of obtaining healthy fruit and improving the environment. This is something that, apart from motivating me enormously, inspires me because it reminds me of the way of farming that I knew as a child.

"This mindset makes me optimistic about agriculture. There is a balance between my professional and personal philosophy and the product I can offer. I have the opportunity to allow farming activities to flow naturally, to allow processes to occur at their moment, without forcing them, and for the benefit of everyone, producers and consumers."

Les Lloses
Les Lloses
Les Lloses is located in the municipality of Sagunto, in the district of Gausa, which lies at the foot of the eastern end of the Sierra Calderona, when it reaches the Mediterranean Sea. To the west, it borders a small mountain known as the Muntanyeta de les Lloses. To the north, five kilometres away, the mountain of Sagunto, enclosed by the walls of its Roman castle. To the east, 6 km away, is the Marjal del Moro wetland, an ornithological reserve on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. This special enclave is not only a unique environment, but also provides a particularly favourable climate for the cultivation of citrus fruits and pomegranates. The agricultural estate covers 31 hectares and is concentrated around its Masía (Mas les Lloses), a building more than 100 years old with a modernist touch. In les Lloses different varieties of oranges, clementines and pomegranates are cultivated, in a completely respectful manner with the environment, thanks to the use of organic fertilizers and the maximum use of useful fauna.
