¿Qué adoptas?
Adoptas un almendro que cultivamos bajo la normativa de Agricultura Ecológica de la Unión Europea desde 2006. Durante el proceso de compra podrás elegir el nombre con el que identificaremos tu almendro. Los almendros son un nuevo cultivo ecológico en nuestra finca. Desde 2006, hemos plantado 6.400. Nuestro padre Michele plantó los primeros almendros casi por casualidad, para recuperar una pequeña parcela triangular situada junto a un viñedo donde era difícil maniobrar con los vehículos agrícolas. Más tarde, se convirtió en un apasionado del cultivo de almendros y, actualmente, ha plantado mucho más de lo que había imaginado. Los árboles más jóvenes se plantaron en 2017. Hay dos variedades de nuestros almendros: Genco y Filippo Cea. Ambas son variedades típicas de Puglia que se han redescubierto en la última década, tras años en los que habían quedado algo olvidadas en toda la región. Para nosotros, el cultivo de los almendros abarca desde el campo hasta el envasado del fruto, ya que nuestra producción es artesanal y familiar. Nos ocupamos de la cosecha directamente, realizamos las operaciones de descascarado en el campo, junto a los árboles. En esta fase, la parte herbácea que está alrededor de la cáscara marrón se quita de la almendra. Después, se pasa a la fase de secado, en la que las almendras se colocan en un lugar seco donde les dé el sol. Luego, se les da la vuelta varias veces al día hasta que pierden toda la humedad. En ese momento, una máquina separa el fruta de la cáscara. En la fase final, las almendras se seleccionan de forma manual. Se trata de una operación muy exigente que nos permite tener frutos secos de primer nivel. Terradiva es nuestra forma de devolver un poco de belleza y dignidad al mundo de la agricultura. La marca Terradiva fue fundada en 2015 por mi hermana Angela y yo. Actualmente, en Terradiva está toda nuestra familia. Es una empresa pequeña, por eso nuestros productos son artesanales y se empaquetan y se etiquetan uno por uno a mano. Somos una generación más joven que apuesta por combinar la experiencia familiar con nuestra formación y visión actual de una finca ecológica y familiar centrada en la sostenibilidad y el cuidado de nuestra tierra. La vida productiva de un almendro es de unos 35 años. Mientras tú quieras y nosotros podamos seguir cuidándolo, podrás renovar tu adopción año tras año. Si tu almendro muere, te lo repondremos sin ningún coste adicional y asegurándote el envío de cosecha de otros.
¿Qué recibes?
Cada temporada te enviaremos una caja con: 1 x __almendras peladas ecológicas__ (3kg) Las almendras estarán descascaradas, no peladas. Es decir, vienen sin la cáscara que parece de madera, pero con la piel marrón. Nuestras almendras están mezcladas y pertenecen a dos variedades típicas de Puglia: Genco y Filippo Cea, que deben su nombre a nuestros ilustres campesinos, los cuales seleccionaron sabiamente estas semillas a finales de la década de 1950. La __almendra Filippo Cea__ es más pequeña que la Genco. Se caracteriza por tener una plántula gemela o una almendra doble en la misma cáscara. Su sabor es dulce, delicado y mantecoso. La __almendra Genco__ tiene mayor tamaño y un sabor intenso, aromático y persistente. Al degustarla, notarás ligeras notas amargas. Te aconsejamos experimentar con las almendras de muchas formas: pueden ser un tentempié en los descansos del trabajo, se pueden tostar al horno con especias, usarse en bizcochos, tartas dulces y saladas, ensaladas, o combinarse con pollo, pescado o quesos suaves. Las almendras se pueden almacenar durante 12 meses (después de quitarles la cáscara). Realizamos descascarados de forma periódica para ofrecer almendras más frescas y crujientes. Nuestra producción es 100% artesanal, las almendras son cuidadosamente seleccionadas a mano, se empaquetan en una bolsa de papel y se etiquetan a mano. En el último año, hemos adquirido el compromiso de eliminar el plástico de todos nuestros envases de almendras, así que solo utilizamos papel o pulpa de celulosa (biodegradable y convertible en abono). Para conservarlas de forma óptima, te sugerimos almacenar las almendras en uno o más frascos de vidrio herméticos, alejados de fuentes de calor, en un lugar fresco y seco. Si la temperatura es elevada (superior a 24 grados), te recomendamos que las metas en el frigorífico. De lo contrario, dado que son almendras ecológicas sin tratar, podrían aparecer polillas dentro del paquete.

¿Cuándo lo recibes?
Más abajo puedes ver la fecha límite para poder participar en este proyecto (fecha límite de adopción). A partir de esta fecha el Farmer empezará a preparar los pedidos de las cajas que debe enviar. Durante el proceso de compra podrás elegir una de las fechas que el Farmer propone para recibir tu caja. La cosecha de almendras suele realizarse a mediados de septiembre en el caso de las almendras de las variedades Genco y Filippo Cea. Sin embargo, según la añada y las condiciones climáticas, la cosecha puede adelantarse a finales de agosto o retrasarse a finales de septiembre. Hacemos los preparativos para la cosecha cuando, al observar los frutos de los árboles, notamos que la cáscara exterior (la parte herbácea) comienza a desprenderse de la cáscara interior (la parte que parece de madera). Al ser una finca pequeña, en febrero dedicamos gran parte de nuestro trabajo a quienes han adoptado a nuestros almendros. Pelamos, seleccionamos, empaquetamos las almendras, y etiquetamos cada bolsa a mano. Recibirás almendras Terradiva a partir de la segunda semana de marzo, que casualmente es la época en la que nuestros almendros están especialmente hermosos, ya que aparecen sus flores blancas.

Vincenzo Lobascio
We are Vincenzo Lobascio, my sister Angela Lobascio and my partner Katharina Pönisch. We decided to found the Terradiva brand to enhance what our family and above all our father have created with dedication and daily commitment over many years. With Terradiva we have the opportunity to pass on the work of agriculture and food production to future generations as the protection and care of a territory, its economy and the local community. Since 2016 we have invested our training and the skills acquired in previous jobs in the construction of a piece of the business that was not there before: we have closed the supply chain. The olives and almonds, their entire process from the cultivation to the harvest can be communicated, presented and the final products sold by us who have taken care of those same plants from which they were born. With the birth of the brand we have combined my profession, Agronomist, and that of our father Michele as an expert farmer and entrepreneur, with Angela’s extra-agricultural skills in socioeconomic development and promotion of the territory, and Katharina’s expertise in promoting health and well-being. The combination of such a diverse range of competencies is not always easy but it gives us an innovative edge in a traditionally conservative sector. In everyday life my work, with Angela and Katharina is divided between the activities in the agricultural fields and the packaging laboratory. Michele's work focuses on coordinating all the activities we do in the fields together with the workers. I also deal with the transformation, quality and traceability of products and the administrative part. Angela and Katharina work on the packaging of the products and organize the shipments, they dedicate themselves to communication and sales activities, direct contact with clients and welcoming visitors. All three of us have dedicated ourselves to other jobs previously. I worked mainly as an agronomist and freelance organic farming inspector. Angela worked as a sociologist at the university but also in private consulting companies, in contact with international organizations, public institutions, local authorities and innovative companies. Katharina has worked in the field of promoting psycho-physical well-being and organizing events in Germany and the United Kingdom. We are happy to join CrowdFarming because here we will find a community of people who like us believe it is possible to choose a better agriculture, made of food that comes from territories with an identity, of small producers who have a face and who do not abandon their lands. We really like the idea of bringing something good (almonds and organic extra virgin olive oil) to the daily life of people we do not yet know and whom we hope to welcome soon for a walk among our trees!
Vincenzo Lobascio

"Our motivation has always been to safeguard the territory in which we were born and live, agriculture is our way of doing it. Being part of CrowdFarming allows us to tell our story and that of our territory outside the national borders. Offering our organic products throughout Europe is of great support for us: it allows us to continue building our business adventure with daily commitment, but also to always take new steps to find the right balance between man and nature."

Terradiva
Terradiva
Our company is called TERRADIVA for two main reasons. The first: we would like the agriculture of Southern Italy to be more ... Diva! We wish no one was ashamed of being peasants, farmers, or had to encourage their children to leave from small villages, from inland areas, as they have done for generations, because “there’s just the land to work” and thus no worthy future. Terradiva is our way to restore a little beauty and dignity to agriculture. Also, and that’s the second reason for our choice, the name TERRADIVA reminds us of one myth of the goddess Minerva, one of the origins of the name of our very own town of Minervino Murge. Minerva won against Poseidon in the challenge to be the god of Athens, by giving her people the most useful gift – the olive tree, which was at the same time a source of nourishment, light through the lamps and wellbeing through skin care. We began our business adventure with organic extra virgin olive oil, so we feel particularly attached to this legend. The farm is located in Southern Italy, in Puglia, in Minervino Murge, a town at the gates of the Alta Murgia National Park. Minervino lies on two hills from which it is possible to observe a panorama up to 100 km away. It is a town rich in traditions, with a historic center of alleys and stairs, churches, and caves to explore. In TERRADIVA we grow almond trees, olive trees and vineyards. We have fields sown with cereals, and among our crops there are also other wild plants such as: rocket, mustard, poppies, thistles, daisies, rosemary, oregano, thyme, oaks, downy oaks, pomegranates, perastri, and wild almond trees. The fields belonging to Terradiva are scattered over the territory of Minervino Murge, but located in different areas, and they are surrounded by many other fields cultivated by local farmers with olive trees, vineyards, fruit trees, but also by the Alta Murgia Park, a protected natural area rich in rocky ridges, rolling hills, karst cavities, pastures, oak and conifer woods. TERRADIVA is located in an internal area of Southern Italy, an area with great potential: the landscape, the local history and culture, the conservation of nature, the quality gastronomic heritage. Unfortunately they are often not recognized or valued. The level of employment and the wealth are pretty low, and we are in an area at great risk of depopulation. With the work on our organic farm we make a contribution to the territory in terms of youth employment but also of protection of the territory, prevention of hydrogeological instability (by planting trees where before there was only cereal cultivation), and the enhancement of typical local products. We also try to promote our area of origin in Italy and abroad through our participation in trade fairs and guided tours of the farm and the area that we offer to visitors. The Terradiva brand was founded in 2015. We can count on a strong agricultural tradition and expertise that come from a history of family farming that has its roots in the early 1900s. The history of our farm begins in the early 1900s. At that time our great-grandparents already worked the land around our town, then our grandparents Paolo and Vincenzo continued their work as farmers: Paolo was a passionate cereal grower, while Vincenzo moved to Minervino Murge as an olive tree pruner. Our father Michele, who has always been involved in the world of agriculture, since the late 90s has enlarged and improved the company, making it organic and planting many new crops that were not there before: olive trees, almond trees and vineyards. At the end of 2015, after developing our careers in different directions, my sister Angela and I decided to come back to the fold and to found a brand that would allow us to close the supply chain and reach the market with a finished product. At the beginning it was just an experiment, but since 2018 it has become our main occupation. We started our adventure with oil, in recent years we have added almonds, Apulian taralli and gift ideas to our catalog. In 2020 we inaugurated our new Terradiva headquarters in Minervino Murge, and that is where we now store and package all of our products. At the end of 2016 Katharina Pönisch joined the family and business adventure, moving from Germany to Minervino Murge, firstly as my life partner, and then together with Angela we have built a work team with different skills and experiences and therefore very useful. In Terradiva we often host visitors who come for guided walks among our trees and product tastings. Since 2019 we have been part of La Ferula Magica, a project that aims to welcome travelers who love slow, active travel, in contact with the local community. For irrigation we use the water that comes from the Locone artificial reservoir, very close to our town and lands. A hectare of olive trees tend to need 1,500 cubic meters of water per year, while one single almond tree needs 1,000 cubic meters of water.cHalf of our olive groves and 3 of the 16 hectares of almond groves have a drip irrigation system, where the water comes out in controlled drops right next to the plant. Our water saving efforts consist in using the drip system and, where possible, to irrigate exclusively at night (in order to reduce the amount of water that evaporates). To improve the soil contents, we add to the fertilizing organic substance pruning residues, organic waste, mussel valve. Where the soil is poorer in organic matter and microelements we sow clover and vetch which enrich the soil with nitrogen, give it a more nutritious content, and reduce soil erosion by atmospheric agents such as wind and water. The whole farm is cultivated with the organic farming method. Our father Michele decided to practice exclusively organic farming since 1998 because he believes in the positive impact this has on the environment and biodiversity. He often tells us that he would like our planet's natural resources to be sufficient for his children, grandchildren and future generations as well. In addition, growing without the use of synthetic chemical compounds avoids the farmers themselves coming into contact with substances that are harmful to their health. To defend the plant from various attacks, we only use substances allowed by organic farming such as: copper, sulfur, bacillus, zeolite (rock dust), kaolin, lime. For the nourishment of our plants we instead use: nitrogen, potassium, iron, microelements, organic fertilizers. The grass cut between our trees is always left on the ground as nourishment, while through spontaneous grassing we favor the presence of insects in our fields. There are about 12 of us working on the farm, however the number varies because it depends on the weather conditions, the cultivation phases of almond and olive trees during the year, and the fluctuations in sales. The team has grown slowly since the creation of the brand, at the end of 2015. Within the business, all workers receive a salary in line with the agricultural sector’s collective contract. When traveling between areas of the farm that are distant from each other, we make our means of transport available to workers. At the end of the fruit harvesting phases, we celebrate all together with a collective meal. We constantly monitor the status of sales of packaged products, and our goal is to sell all our production under the Terradiva brand. When there is an excess of production, though, we sell part of this in the wholesale market. An important part of our work consists in selecting, before harvesting, the trees in the field in order to choose those with the healthiest olives for transformation into organic extra virgin olive oil under our brand. In the case of almonds, we select the fruits manually after shelling, eliminating micro-shells of almonds that are not removed by the machine, smaller and poorly hydrated almonds or even broken almonds. All this takes place in order to offer a first choice product that is preserved at best and for a long time. We do not have a composting area so the pruning residues are chopped and left in the field, as are the residual leaves of the harvest.
