About Us and our Approach

The Horticola Sierra Cooperative was started in 1996 as a response to rising concerns about the pollution of local aquifers with nitrates, being caused by intensive conventional agriculture in the area.

From there the Cooperative has grown in size, and in 2005 was one of the founding members of a regional program to provide organic food to school kitchens. We have maintained and strengthened our involvement with this program since then, thanks to the efforts of our own members and other partnering organic farms in the Málaga area.
