Picking strawberries in January

Day 7 of AALP Class 17 IST contintued with one of the highlights so far on the trip, a fruit cooperative named Cuna De Platero. We were lucky enough to be taken on a tour of their greenhouses where they allowed to try some of the different varieties of strawberries that they grow.  The greenhouses are once again made with plastic and are of similar style to our previous visits this trip. They have a cooperative structure, which is something we have come to find is very common here in Spain.…

Exploring traditional and modern agriculture in Spain

Jan 12 - Sunday

Our day began leaving the sunny Mediterranean coast and travelling to the small rural village of Alameda. We visited the Centre Tematico del campo Andaluz. This was a museum dedicated to teaching people about the past farming practices and traditions. We were met by a museum guide, and two local farmers, a father and son – Antonio Sr. and Antonio Jr. Antonio Sr. was 90 years old and had, in his lifetime, farmed in the traditional way which, for olive oil production,…

Ag and city tours make up our first few days in Spain

The AALP Class left the beautiful Toledo to head to a feedlot outside the city. We were toured around a feedlot that is part of a cooperative that consists of 9,500 head of cattle. Our host, who is the president of the cooperative, has two feedlots and 600 hectares of crop land. It was interesting to learn that the cooperative’s major export market outside of Spain are Lebanon, Turkey and Israel. These destinations have particularly stringent standards for how the beef must be treated and…

Sheep Farming: Producing Quality Lambs

At Ewetopia Farms, we combine two days of footage into one. There were lots of new lambs born into our flock during this time. As we see the lambs at birth and in the lambing jugs, then move on to the slightly older lambs in the Coveralls, we can see the fruits of our labor and it becomes more evident who are blossoming into the type of quality lambs we are striving for. Not everyone makes the cut, but already, there are some who are beginning to stand out. Alongside all the births, we have also had our share of mortalities the past few days due mainly to a listeriosis outbreak caused by moldy feed which took one of our favorite rams, Snappy, and also a few ewes. It is truly devastating when this happens! We also had a customer pick up one of our yearling rams to add to his flock.
