GET TO KNOW US A LITTLE MORE
HOW THE PROJECT ARISES
La Verdeaurora Bio Farm was born in the 1960s in the heart of Fuerteventura when Antonio Mesa and Pilar Cabrera decided to buy this farm to plant tomatoes. Previously, the land was used for cereal and legume plantations, as was the case in much of the island. However, in the generational replacement of Antonio’s son, Luis Mesa Cabrera, the tomato activity continues but innovating in production with the greenhouse that still stands today.
This new system allowed better control of weather conditions, especially wind. In 1997 Luis Mesa and his partner decide that the farm is going to be the place to create the family home to raise little Luis and Aurora.
In 2000, approximately Luis Mesa was forced to abandon the tomato activity due to different situations such as Moroccan competition and difficulties in island cooperation.
For a few years the farm was without productive activity until in 2008 Luis Mesa and due to his passion for agriculture decided to plant the first 400 olive trees on the farm. </ span >
In the following years Aloe Vera plantations were inaugurated and 200 more olive trees were added. In 2013 Luis Mesa, third generation, finished his Architecture studies in Madrid and returned to the island to lead the family business. All the activities of the farm are unified under the same name: Verdeaurora.
The history of rural accommodation begins in the town of Roque, in 2002 when Cloti decided to enter rural tourism by rehabilitating the house in which he was born, thus creating Casa Tile .
Then, in 2006, a house on the Verdeaurora estate was rehabilitated, formerly intended for mediators who worked the land, and Casa Pilar and Casa Aurora were born. </ span>
In 2014 the line of pure and natural care products was created, always created under the project’s philosophy and inspired by the sensations and magic of the island. Thus begins the adventure that continues to this day.
We use solar panels to supply the farm with sufficient energy thanks to renewable energy, reducing energy consumption
We have created an Ornithological Reserve with the aim of offering a space for the conservation and observation of the birds that nest in Fuerteventura
The Verdeaurora Bio Farm has CRAE ecological certificates thanks to our sustainable Aloe Vera and olive cultivation project
Application of the concepts and principles of ecology to the design, development and management of sustainable agricultural systems on our farm </ span>
At Verdeaurora we work every day under the slow philosophy. We spend all the time we need, without haste, to create unique experiences and natural products that will make our clients, friends and collaborators enjoy themselves, and that will make them feel part of nature in its purest state.
Our project rescues the traditions of Fuerteventura, our main inspiration, as well as the local culture. Our goal is to make them known through sustainable tourism, with minimal impact on the environment, and to highlight all its benefits.
In addition, we are concerned with the well-being of people and that of the planet, for this reason all our activity is carried out under ecological certification, but also under the principles of quality, respect and commitment.
