Alberto Torres
Alberto Torres grows some of our fantastic organic stone fruit, citrus and berries in beautiful Valencia, Spain. A real nature buff, Alberto loves a spot of mountaineering and mountain biking when he’s not on the farm. In 2000, Alberto wanted to do his part to protect the local area he loved so much. “When I started to grow organic, I didn’t have a clue. At the time, there was very little knowledge about how to combat disease and pests that fruit farms can experience,” he explains. “As time went on, I found that it was easier than you might expect. We had come to believe you need everything agronomists, technicians and chemical companies say you do. Instead, all you have to do is find the right balance between your farm and nature.”
