Finca Vega de Aguín is a modern kiwi plantation with more than 11 hectares (ha) of cultivation. In 2019 it will be extended up to 16 ha, with an investment in 5 ha for ecological kiwis. In 2020, new productive investments will be carried out in order to reach 30/40 ha of the Actinidia Deliciosa, Hayward green variety, in conventional and ecological qualities.

The location of the plantation, in the eastern interior of Asturias, its abundance of water, flanked by the river Borines, the fact that it is south facing, as well as the design of the plantation, favour producing a kiwi with a unique flavour. Harvesting is done with a minimum Brix index (sugar content) of 7.5/8%, well above what regulations require (minimum of 6.2%), thus optimizing the dry matter extract and guaranteeing a highly seasoned kiwi. The fruit starts being sold in December with 11/12% sugar content.

Finca Vega de Aguín manages the crop using sustainable exploitation, using water resources rationally with automated and computerized irrigation systems, using photovoltaic energy and using foliar fertilizers and the latest biodegradable treatments, with a complete lack of hormones for the artificial growth of the fruit as well as herbicides. The fruit is analysed every year by approved laboratories, with a complete absence of residues observed, which backs up this type of cultivation.

All the leftovers from pruning, grass and discarded fruit are recycled as organic fertilizer. Important volumes of compost and cured manure are used every year.

Finca Vega de Aguín is the first kiwi-growing company that has certified all its activities in 2016 with Global Gap (version 5.0) (kiwi 155.209). It also has authorization to use the Food of Natural Paradise mark (K0049) as a guarantee of quality and origin in Asturias and has the Veriseg certification as well as being an authorized operator (registration nº 4056186834959) by COPAE for the commercialization of ecological kiwis.
