    Description

    Hi everyone!!! my oral english is fair enough, not like my writting. haha. sorry about the future mistakes. I am a professional cook and vocational farmer. I had been worked and studied in China for almost 4 years, but 3 years ago i had to came back home bcz my grandpa passed and i had to take care of the farm. I produce lemon mainly, but my idea is to plant an edible forest, integrated with animals. By now i have, chesnuts, brainnuts, peaches, small peaches( pexegos), plums, medlar, apples, pears, avocados (growing) and i m planting hazelnut in this moment. Of course everything with no chemicals, everything Ecofarming. I like tropical fruits, and i m a beliver of global warming so....i m testing guinea bananas, macadamian nut, kalamanci, pink peppercorn, litchi and so on..... my orchard is kinda small, only 200 square meters, i prefer trees, much less work.
    I feel attracted by self-sufficiency,bee keeping, food preservation, smoking, salted, fermentation, solar cooking, bioconstruction, brewing and all that kind of stuff.

    I have few chickens and i hope i can start doing line crossing soon to make a good double purpose hibrid, meat and eggs. I have a dog and some cats.

    Actually the whole farms have tons of work and things to be repaired, improve and maintain. I m there alone, except for some days a week my mom come to give me some help. Right now i m surviving selling lemons and the others fruits i have ech season of the year, plus i work some extra hours as cook.

    Muy buenas!! soy cocinero de profesión y agricultor de vocación. Pase 4 años trabajando y estudiando en China, y hace 3 años me toco volver a casa ya que mi abuelo falleció y me toco a mi hacerme cargo de las fincas.Principalmente cultivo limones, pero mi idea es llegar a tener un bosque comestible, integrado con animales. Ahora mismo en la finca hay castañeros, nogaless, pexegos, melocotoneros, ciruelos, algun nispero, manzanos, algun peral, aguacates creciendo y estoy empezando a plantar avellanos. Por supuesto todo en ecologico. Me llaman mucho las frutas tropicales,y creo firmemente en el cambio climatico asi que estoy haciendo pruebas con platanera de guinea, nuez de macadamia, kalamanci, pimienta rosa, litchi y alguna hierba mas. Mi huerta es pequeña, unos 200 metros cuadrados, prefiero los arboles, mucho menos trabajo. Me atrae mucho la autosuficiencia , la apicultura, la conservacion de alimentos, ahumado, salado, fermentacion, cocina solar, bioconstruccion elaboracion de sidras y alcoholes, etc.
    Mantengo un grupo pequeño de gallinas, y espero poder empezar a hacer cruces con razas pronto para llegar a producir un buen hibrido para carne y huevos. Tengo un perro y algun gato.
    La verdad es que la finca tiene muchisimas cosas que reparar, mejorar y mantener. Y yo estoy solo alli , excepto algunos dias a la semana que viene mi madre a ayudarme. Ahora mismo sobrevivo con la venta de limones y lo que produzco en cada epoca. Ademas hago alguna hora extra como cocinero.
