The project

Adopt a rice field from "Riuet" in Sollana (Spain) and receive your harvest in the form of Jasmine rice at home. The Farmer Jesús 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. 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?

You adopt a rice field in the Natural Park of La Albufera in Valencia. This emblematic place is a natural freshwater wetland declared a natural park in 1986, where rice has been grown since the 15th century. We cultivate your rice, harvest it, leave it to dry in the sun and package it in cotton bags personalized with the name you chose in the adoption process. The seasons mark the calendar of the cycle of rice cultivation: In summer we make use of the sunlight and richness of the substrate to nourish the plants; in winter the fields lay fallow and flooded in order to increase the regeneration of the earth and the aquatic biodiversity. Each rice paddy produces an average of 8kg of Jasmine rice per season.

What will you receive?

Each season we will send you a box with: * 4 x __Jasmine rice__ (1kg bags) Variety of long, crystalline and bleached grain, cultivated within the Albufera Natural Park of Valencia (Spain). It is a variety originating from Southeast Asia, long grain and crystalline. Jasmine rice is always loose after cooking due to its organoleptic characteristics. It is recommended for sides and salads. * 4 x __whole grain Jasmine rice__ (1kg bags) Long grain variety, crystalline and whole grain. We grow it in the Albufera Natural Park. It is aromatic and very rich in dietary fibre, vitamins and other essential elements. Especially suitable for healthy and/or vegetarian diets. It is always loose after cooking due to its special characteristics. Recommended for sides and salads. It is boiled in excess water. The best before date is approximately 2 years after the harvest.

When will you receive it?

You may select the delivery date of your box as suggested by the Farmer at check-out.

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.
