What do you adopt?
Adopt {publicVariety} from our farm in {cityfarm} ({countryFarm}). During the process of adoption you can choose a name that we will engrave on a plaque and hang on your tree. You are adopting a young tree which has is not yet producing a sufficient quantity of fruit. While these trees grow, your harvest will come from their older siblings. A {variety} from our farm produces an average of {masterUnitsMax} kg each season. You do not have to commit to the consumption of the whole harvest. Each season you may decide what quantity to reserve and pay the maintenance in accordance with the amount you reserve. This way you will only pay for what you consume and we can plan and sell the remaining harvest amount from you tree to others. The productive life of {publicVariety} is around 20 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 {variety} dies, we will replace it with no additional cost and assuring the delivery of your harvest from other trees.
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: __5kg of Sinsu persimmon __ * The Sinsu persimmon is sweet, firm and crunchy with an intense orange color. * The fruits are flattened and similar in size to an apple * The skin of the persimmon will show some marks resulting from thrips, fungi, flies etc. but its interior quality remains spotless The best way to keep your persimmon is in the fridge as you can enjoy them longer. Keep the fruits in a cool, dry area and away from the light.
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. This variety is collected at its optimum ripening time between mid-September and mid-October approximately.
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.

At home my whole family has always been associated with working the fields. My grandparents were farmers and marketers. My father has also been a farmer and since I was seven or eight years old I spent my summers with him in the countryside helping where I could. In the early morning we went to the fields to harvest the fruits (peaches, apricots,...) and later in the inner courtyard of our house we packed them into wooden boxes to send them to the markets of Valencia and Barcelona. I finished my studies specializing in agriculture and at 22 years-old, while my friends started to buy their cars and motorbikesm, I took out a loan to buy El Monte de Carlos. Little by little we transformed the farm and have been planting different varieties until today. Some didn’t turn out the way we expected, while with others we were more successful, but I love to keep trying out varieties and keeping myself up-to-date with the latest developments.

“For farmers there is something more worrisome than frost, hail or any other natural catastrophe. It is the incapacity to sell your harvest at a price that will at least cover fixed costs. This situation alerted us and led us to search sales channels directed towards the final consumer. Crowdfarming motivates you to produce quality because you are playing with your own image.”

The Monte de Carlos is a small farm difficult to reach in the midst of a mountain, ideals for developing the cultivation of stoned fruit without the use of pesticides. The absence of other forms of cultivation along with a large forests which surrounds the field and prevents the spreading of pests. In 2012 there was a huge fire in this zone which destroyed the whole mount, burning all of the mediterranean pine trees. The fire didn’t reach the farm but the hot air killed all the trees we had planted. The farm started producing again in the summer of 2014 with the plantation of apricot trees which are now in full production.
