As the manager of Hortalizas Organicas I represent a group of 20 small avocado growers in the beautiful area of Michoacán, who joined forces to ensure that the fruit we grow reaches you in the best possible condition. Apart from avocados we also grow mango's, grapefruits, green limes, passion fruit and more. Thank you for buying our products!
Michoacán is a Mexican state located on the west coast, bordering the beautiful pacific ocean. Our region is perfect for growing avocados, due to the fertile volcanic soil, the excellent climate and the altitude. The avocado orchards are all between 1500 and 2100 meters above sea level. It therefore comes as no surprise that people call this region the world capital of the avocado. Our farmers are really in love with their avocado's. We eat them all the time!
Our farm is a real family business. My father started farming organically in 1994 and I joined him two years later. My wife Luisa, my three daughters and one son and their families are all involved with the company one way or another. Thanks to our organic approach, we live a wonderful life in the countryside, amidst an abundance of plant and animal diversity.
