Little water, lots of flavour
The Spanish family business Citricos El Romeral defies the water shortage in the sunny region of Málaga with hierba and clever technology.
South-west of Málaga, fourteen organic fincas nestle, one after the other, on the riverbed of the Río Guadalhorce. Although this is one of the most water-rich rivers in Andalusia, its name carries a quiet warning. In Arabic, Guadalhorce means River of the Silent - and in view of climate change, the once abundant water masses are threatening to become silent at some point. But Naturland farmer Miguel Ángel is not letting it get him down.
