MORE THAN 50 YEARS GROWING OUR LAND
It all began when our great-grandfather Pepe Asunción decided to buy a few hectares of carob trees to plant what was overflowing in the Valencian lands at that time, the orange trees. Every week he went with his son José to care for and watch his plantation grow, transmitting to his son the passion he felt for the land.
Little by little, his son José (our grandfather) fell more and more in love with his land and continued to cultivate orange trees in the traditional way, buying a few more hectares to expand the farm. Unfortunately, during the 1970s a disease called “la tristeza” devastated the Valencian citrus industry and grandfather José had to uproot all the trees that his father had planted with such enthusiasm.
But grandfather José was a determined and passionate person and he replanted the farm, achieving a healthy and balanced crop. He loved to spend Sunday afternoons walking around the estate, and like his father, he would take his children and grandchildren with him. We loved to pick the oranges from the tree and eat them while our grandfather told us stories.
Today, our grandfather’s grandchildren take care of the land and a few years ago we converted all the fields to ecological and sustainable production that respects our environment and our land. Since, like our ancestors, we feel great passion for it. Follow us on Facebook to se how we work.
