Jessica Ponce
My name is Jessica Ponce, and I am the third generation of a farming family dedicated to the cultivation of citrus fruits, vegetables, olives, grapevines and tropical fruit. I have had the good fortune and the pleasure to be born surrounded by nature. Ever since I was a child I had a passion for agriculture, my parents always taught me that working in the fields was very hard but at the same time very satisfying. They made me see that with effort, love and dedication, nature can offer us wonderful things. But it is something that fills me with nostalgia, as it makes me remember how as a child I always went with my grandfather to the countryside and I loved to watch him carry out each task. My studies are not related to the agricultural sector, as I studied Administration and Finance and Management Assistance, however I come from a family with a long tradition in the agricultural world, so I have a good perspective that mixes innovation and tradition. I would love to take part in training related to the environment. I was lucky enough to start working with Paco Marin, CrowdFarming's Farmer, who helped me to accumulate more knowledge about agriculture. I follow the day-to-day running of their farm and know the joys and difficulties of being part of CrowdFarming first hand. Thanks to this and all the knowledge I have gained over the years, I decided to create this project, with the objective of being able to make the most unproductive areas of the farm profitable, based on ecological and sustainable management, which contributes in every moment to the protection and growth of biodiversity. Together with my father, my work on the farm is focused on controlling the crop, observing if there is any type of pest, such as the cochineal, which is very common. In order to prevent it, we apply potassium soap to each prickly pear every 15 days. It is a totally natural product created to prevent or combat this common pest. In addition, although it is a rain-fed plant, we must provide irrigation one or two times a week, control the elimination of weeds and observe the flowering and harvesting times of the fruit, in this way we work hard to achieve better quality. CrowdFarming gives me the opportunity to give value to such a traditional crop as the prickly pear on our land, as well as being able to offer my products to the end customer without the need for intermediaries.
Finca Familia Aguilar
Our farm is located within the municipality of Comares, in a small hamlet called Llano Almendra, in the province of Málaga. Comares is known as the 'Balcony of the Axarquia' as it stands more than seven hundred metres above sea level, meaning that there are stunning panoramic views from the village. The farm covers 25,000 m² and is close to the Las Cuevas River. Its name comes from the surname of my grandfather Antonio Aguilar, who bought it more than fifty years ago. Today it belongs to his children (my mother and my aunts & uncles). For more than forty years now, the main crop has been the lemon, occupying 90% of the surface. This is a very typical crop in the area, but we also grow other citrus fruits such as oranges. Every year since we've had the farm, we've also grown tomatoes, peppers, melons and all the vegetables we need for our own consumption. The local area is perfect for the cultivation of citrus fruits. Our lemon orchard was grafted in a bitter orange rootstock to obtain more resistant trees and my grandfather chose the Lunar lemon (that's what we call the Fino lemon here because it has several blooms per year depending on the moon). Our farm is a family affair: my grandfather, my mother, my father, my sister and I carry out the necessary tasks. However, we occasionally have the help of other family members or we recruit local workers to help us with specific jobs such as pruning or weed removal. The workers are usually the same ones and their working conditions are regulated according to the bargaining agreement. The farm has its own well and an 'alberca' (like a mini reservoir), which we use to water the trees with a drip irrigation system. We've been certified organic for more than a decade now and we're very proud of it. We combat pests with natural methods and leave the pruning remains and grass to cover the soil. The biodiversity of the farm is wonderful, with it being easy to find chameleons, hares, mountain goats and birds of prey here. When it comes to harvesting, we use any inferior quality and unsellable fruit either for our own consumption or to give to our family and friends as a gift. We make jam, ice cream or delicious lemonades. The main economic activity in the region is agriculture. Over the years, citrus plantations and rainfed crops such as olives and almonds have been replaced by subtropical crops such as mangos and avocados thanks to their greater yield. We decided to continue growing the lemons that my grandfather planted with so much effort. I'm very proud of my roots and, thanks to CrowdFarming, I hope to continue growing this crop for a third generation.
