Bionest, Spain

Bionest was established in 1992 when the Soltero family decided to produce organic berries. The farm, owned by two brothers, operates in a privileged natural environment called Doñana which has encouraged the family to produce organic that would help sustain and preserve the beautiful landscape. Many different varieties of wildlife, plants and animals share the extraordinary landscape with the farm. This is the main reason why their growing techniques and agricultural practices are extremely cautious and respectful of every single factor that affects nature.
