CROWDFARMING #BaumPflanzen #planta1arbol #planter1arbre

EN - If you like to eat healthy, delicious foods, if you care about where your food comes from, who has cultivated it, when they are in season, and so on, then become a "farmer 2.0"! We will plant a tree for you, take care of it, and send you the fruit it produces. Be a part of CROWDFARMING!

That is the weight in kilograms that your grown tree will produce. You can ship them in whatever quantity and frequency you decide. 

We will plant a tree and reserve one of our grown ones so you can order fruits from the very beginning.

We will take care of every single detail of your tree and ensure that it grows strong and healthy by using organic techniques for citrus agriculture, for only € 16 a year (0,20 €/kg). 

We will grant you access to a user area on our website where you will be able to manage your "online plantation", give your tree a name, check the maturation of the fruits, and order a shipment to anywhere in Europe. We will only charge you for the shipment costs* but eventually we won’t charge you if you decide to harvest your fruits by yourself. We guarantee that as soon as your tree finishes growing it will produce 80 kg of fruit every season, unless the plantation suffers climate catastrophes. 

You can leave the crowdfarming project whenever you like. We will continue taking care of the tree, you are welcome back at any time.

*Shipment cost: how much does it cost to send a box of oranges / mandarins from your tree to your door?

Who we are?

We are Naranjas del Carmen, a little orange paradise brought to life by Gabriel, Gonzalo, Fernando and Patricia – four siblings and the third generation of a family dedicated to the cultivation of high quality organic fruits. We put aside maximum production and instead focus on bringing you a product of unrivalled quality that we feel you, the customer, deserve. Inheriting the estate from our grandfather, we connect the past to the present and bring innovation to the tradition of this ancient orange grove. Roaming about these expansive groves as children allowed us to have a desiring zest for life and now, years on, has lead us to realise our dream of establishing a meaningful and fair trade in agricultural produce. We specialise in growing, picking and delivering the best oranges in Spain to people all across Europe, sent in a little box of happiness that arrives at our customers doorsteps in less than 3 days.

 Our mission

Our mission is simple – we want to show the world that local farmers can have an international presence and allow people to put a face to the farmer who cultivates, collects and delivers their produce. All of our oranges are treated with tender loving care – we use no pesticides and all of the farming techniques we use are 100% natural. After 5 great years of success exporting our oranges around Europe, we have decided expand our estate and renew our land so that we have a more sustainable future! Our current trees are unfortunately coming to the end of their life span, and although they have served us well, we now have important decisions to make about the future of Naranjas del Carmen. Our mission is therefore simple. We are looking to remove the old, renew the current and regain our future. And for that, we need your help!

„Wir wollen, dass alles ineinandergreift“, sagt Gónzalo Úrculo von der Firma Naranjas del Carmen: „Die Hunde jagen die Kaninchen und verteidigen so die Orangenbäume. Und wir braten dann die Kaninchen.“ Naranjas del Carmen ist eine junge Plantage mit einem ungewöhnlichen Geschäftsmodell. Die Finca verbindet die Tugenden eines Biobauern mit dem Service eines modernen Online-Vertriebs. „Wir liefern höchste Qualität. Und wir liefern schnell“, sagt Gonzálo Úrculo.

Countries in which we deliver:

At this time, we do not ship oranges to the United States, but we plan to change that in the near future. However, any US resident can still support this project and own a tree. The tree will be planted in your name and taken proper care of. If you decide to, it can also be given as a gift to friends and family in Europe. Additionally, our farm in Valencia is open to you, you can visit any time!

Risks and challenges

Being a Farmer 2.0 means understanding that agriculture is not always an exact science. There is always the risk of natural disasters like wind or a too cold temperature that could decrease production or even kill a tree. However, we specifically chose the location of Valencia, Spain because of it's favourable weather conditions for our trees.

Additionally, to reduce the risk of a lack of production in your tree we will plant double the trees that we sell. Furthermore, we currently have 9.000 big trees that belong to us to ensure that you receive 80 kg of fruit per year.
