Calling all avocado lovers!
Why not join us during our Bacon, Fuerte and Hass avocado harvests? This is a wonderful activity for solo travellers, friends, families and work colleagues because no matter your age or level of fitness you can join in. Everyone taking part will come away with a wealth of knowledge about avocados, will have experienced at first hand the satisfaction of harvesting food and will have a new perspective on what's involved in running a sub-tropical and citrus fruit farm.
Everyone on an Avocation gets involved in the harvest, and no matter the weather, the fact that you are outside, physically engaging with nature, under the trees, touching and harvesting the fruit, makes for an unforgettable experience. There is simply no better way to connect to others than to go back and do what our ancestors did for thousands of years -- and that is to gather food and then sit down together to a homecooked meal.
You will learn all there is to know about avocados -- why they grow where they grow and the different types of avocado -- as well as how to pick and handle them whilst harvesting. We wish to share our passion for sustainably grown food and to allow guests to engage with the plants, the surroundings and each other in a positive way. Avocations are all about working together in a group, communication, and most importantly, connection to each other, nature and oneself.
Guests will also visit the cooperative where we deliver the fruit and eat avocado with the home-cooked lunch every day.
Avocations of 2-5 days are ideal. Please note that this is a non-residential 'vacation' which means you stay in a hotel of your choice -- be it in the locality, on the coast or Malaga city -- and you pop up to the farm for the day. Avocations are a full-day activity with a homecooked lunch and drinks included. Prices vary depending on group size.
