The love for agriculture comes from my father and mother who taught me how to work on the fields. Back in 1978 I started planting vegetables myself but at that time I was using a lot of different pesticides also in our lime orchards. When I started harvesting the first limes they were the worst limes I had seen in my life. Therefore, during the next flowering, I didn’t use pesticides and the limes came out clean and beautiful. Never again did I use these chemicals. In 2000, our clients and partners said that, since we didn’t use pesticides, we should go after the organic certification and so we listened to them and we became organic certified. Today, my family is also involved in the business with the second and third generations actively involved in our company.
