Out in the Sicilian Citrus fields

When I am out in the fields it is like paradise. You breath fresh air, look at all the hard work people do by hand and you are where we should be…in the nature. I feel free. This is one of my favourite part of my work, but also the most difficult. Regulary I visit all fields where fruits and vegetables grow to update with changes and varieties, all this then sent to buyers in Europe. With the producer we collect all information. For citrus it takes about three days and for vegetables approximately a week, from morning to evening, including writing the summary to buyers. Welcome to a small tour in the organic citrus fields; lemons, grapes and oranges.

N?r jag ?r ute p? f?lten ?r det som ett paradis. Du andas frisk luft, ser p? allt det h?rda arbete m?nniskorna g?r f?r hand och du ?r d?r vi borde vara … i naturen. Jag k?nner mig fri. Detta ?r en favorit del av mitt arbete, men ocks? den sv?raste. Regelbundet bes?ker jag alla omr?den d?r frukt och gr?nsaker v?xer f?r att uppdatera med f?r?ndringar och varianter, allt detta skickar jag till k?pare i Europa. Med producenten samlar vi all information. F?r citrus tar det ungef?r tre dagar och f?r gr?nsaker ungef?r en vecka, fr?n morgon till kv?ll, inklusive att skriva sammanfattningen till k?pare. V?lkommen till en liten turn? i de ekologiska citrusf?lten; citroner, grapefrukt och apelsiner.

Piano Casazze

We visited a location called Piano Casazze in Sicily. On this place was located a very important greek city built 400-300 B.C. It was a agricultural business city where also their money called Galaria had a grape symbol. Money had different symbols depending of the area and what was mainly produced in that area. People lived in caves and structures built of stone. Under the hill you can find an arabian synagogue. The historical guide said the origins are from 2500-1500 B.C. I have to ask again…

We are heading to the white hill top on the left.

Vi bes?kte en plats som heter Piano Casazze p? Sicilien. P? denna plats l?g en mycket viktig grekisk stad byggd 400-300 f.Kr. Det var en jordbruksstad d?r ocks? deras pengar som kallas Galaria hade en druva som symbol. Pengarna hade olika symboler beroende av omr?det och vad som huvudsakligen produceras i det omr?det. Folk bodde i grottor och strukturer byggda av sten. Under kullen kan du hitta en arabisk synagoga. Historiska guiden sade att ursprunget ?r fr?n 2500-1500 f.Kr. Jag m?ste fr?ga igen
