How we do it

 

Perennial Polyculture

Perennials are plants that grow for many years. They have extensive roots that reach deep into the soil. Here they find water, even during dry years. We carefully combine and diversify crops to minimise pests, give season-round food for pollinator

Swales

Swales are contour-following gullies that prevent erosion and run-off. We make them big, so they serve as ecological corridors as well.

Ponds

Strategically placed ponds hold on to water throughout the season. They provide drinking water for wildlife and migratory birds.

Dry Fruit

In Spain this term refers to a variety of fruits including raisins and dry figs, as well as nuts and seeds.

Our secondary commercial crop is almonds, which we sell through a local company called Almehendresa. We also have pistachio and walnuts on a much smaller scale.

Aromatics

Part of our experimental agroforestry systems is planting native perennial shrubs between tree lines and on field edges. Thyme, lavender, rosemary and sage have the ability to survive the long dry season, here in the south of Spain, and can be seen growing wild in the hills around La Junquera.

There plants can be sold fresh or dry and can be processed to essential oils.

Regenerative Farming

We focus in the basis: a healthy soil and ecosystem.
