How does it work?How does it work?

The harvest of our trees is reserved for our orange tree owners. This allows us to grow oranges organically on demand and send them straight from the tree to your home without post-harvest treatment and without going through cooling chambers. How do you become an orange tree owner?

1. Decide how many oranges you want to reserve for the first season.

2. Give your tree a name

3. When you confirm the adoption of your orange tree we will give you access to an orchard in your user account.

INFO
80 kg. per year...
This is the amount of oranges that we will send to you at the frequencies and quantities you prefer. If the entire harvest is too much for you, have a look at the possibility to receive only half of it.
The first year...
We'll assign you an orange tree, water it, and take care of it. We will hang a sign engraved with the name you have chosen and we will take a picture of it. You can order your harvest to be sent to you during the entire season (from November to May).

Price of the tree: 80.00€
From the second year onwards...
If you enjoy the experience, you can renew the adoption of your tree each season and change the quantity of the harvest you want to receive for next season. You do, however, not enter into any long-term commitment. If you don’t wish to renew, we will continue caring for the tree.

Maintenance price: 60.00€/year
Maintenance will be fixed for the life of your tree as long as our production costs remain constant.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS - FAQ

1

How long does my orange tree live?

An orange tree has an average life expectancy of around 25 years. If, for some reason, your tree becomes sick or dies before the 25 years are over, we will replace it by one of our own trees, having the same age and orange variety.
2

Can I also order clementines from the harvest I reserved on my orange tree?

Yes, as long as we harvest enough fruits. The clementine season (variety: clemenules) begins in middle of November and usually lasts until the end of December.
3

When can I order the harvest?

From November to May you'll be able to receive the amount of fruit you want to reserve from your adoption. You can have all the boxes sent to the same address or to different addresses including (optionally) a gift message.

We have three box sizes: 5 kg, 10 kg and 15 kg. All packaging material is recycled and we don't use plastics for shipping.
4

Will I receive the oranges from my own tree?

Our fields are not a screw factory, the trees do not all produce the same amount. Following an agricultural logic, it wouldn’t make much sense to only harvest the fruit from your tree. If your tree produces few fruits in one year, you will receive the fruit from other trees as well. We can mitigate the risks of a small harvest by sharing the fruit from all of the planted trees.

When you come to visit your tree, you can pick the oranges from your tree and enjoy them directly.
5

Can I visit my tree?

Yes of course! We will be happy to show you around our farm and show you your tree. In order to visit your tree, we kindly ask you to make an appointment with us one week before using this contact form.
6

How many oranges does an orange tree produce?

Our orange trees produce around 80kg per season. Although we could harvest even more, quality comes always first at Naranjas del Carmen.
7

Can I give a tree as a gift?

Yes, of course! A tree is a very special and healthy gift, which lasts for 25 years. You need to complete the purchase with your account. Afterwards, as soon as the tree appears in your garden, you can indicate the e-mail address of the person who is supposed to receive the gift, a personal message and the date when he or she should be informed by us.
8

What happens if I will not consume all of my harvest during one season?

You will not lose the kilos you do not consume. They will automatically be added to your kilos of the next season. However, every season we can guarantee only 80kg per tree. In case you have more kilos of the previous seasons left, we cannot assure that you will be able to consume all of them throughout the ongoing harvest period. We depend on the amount of oranges hanging on our trees.
9

When will the name plaque be attached?

From the moment you decide to adopt a tree, we will give you access to your orchard from where you will be able to order oranges during the season. The process of producing the plaque, hanging it on your tree, and taking the photo is very manual; we can take up to 8 months to do all this process although we are trying to streamline the process to take less time.
10

When will the maintenance costs for the next season be deducted?

The maintenance cost of your tree will be debited automatically before the new season begins (in September or October).

Please bear in mind that you have the possibility to stop the maintenance of your tree before each season, there is no obligation to commit to the adoption long-term.
11

Can I pause the maintenance payment?

Yes, you can pause the maintenance of your tree for one season through your private area and consume the kilos that you have left from previous harvests, paying only the logistics costs. If you don't start again in the following season, you can still order your remaining harvest, but you'll lose the tree and won't be able to get it back.

Crowdfarming® makes it possible to reduce food waste, which from a farmer’s point of view is one of the biggest problems that needs to be treated and solved with great urgency by today’s society.

By adopting a tree we can plan and cultivate oranges that will eventually be shipped to you. This system allows for complete traceability and transparency regarding the origin of the oranges you receive.

Knowing who is cultivating, harvesting, and packaging your fruit is the best quality assurance we can offer.
