Manuel Troya

Manuel Troya has owned Pajaretillo, a family farm since the 60s. Located in Sierra Cádiz, a renowned livestock area, Pajaretillo stands out for its regenerative livestock. Manuel actively adopts innovation to restore ecosystems, ensure animal welfare, and promote biodiversity, transitioning the farm to regenerative management since 2018.

Overview
Manuel is participating in the “Aggregated Project Mediterranean South (MDS) and Mediterranean North (MDN)” as a part of the Climate Farmers Carbon+ program.  The aggregated project is developed by Climate Farmers and is tailored to farms located in the Mediterranean South & North. The project aims to generate financial incentives for farmers to encourage the adoption of regenerative agriculture resulting in GHG reductions and carbon removals. Regenerative agriculture can be described as an approach that goes beyond organic farming by focusing on rebuilding and regenerating the soil, as well as improving the overall health and biodiversity of the farm ecosystem.

Project Highlight
Through the Climate Farmers Carbon+ Program, Manuel is set to invest in a new water management system that will allow him to build resilience to extreme weather events into the core of his farm. He’ll also be able to extend the boundaries for where his livestock can graze, making his farm business more economically efficient. Beyond the economic and ecological benefits of Carbon+, Manuel has also appreciated the social dimension of transitioning to regenerative agriculture. Through the program, he’s been able to connect with a diverse network of farmers throughout Europe to support his farm transformation.

Their carbon credits are generated through their own ISO 14064-2 certified methodology and every project is verified by the external auditor Tüv.

About Climate Farmers

Climate Farmers was founded in order to build the infrastructure to scale regenerative agriculture in Europe. They connect farmers with each other through a Europe wide Peer to Peer learning community, help them create context specific transition plans and support them financially in their transition journey through the sale of carbon+ credits. Regenerative farmers are providing ecosystem services such as carbon sequestration, biodiversity increase and soil water holding capacity for all of us. If we want to get more farmers on the regenerative path, we need to pay them for these ecosystem services.

Vision

Their vision is a world where humans are living in harmony with nature. The first step to achieving that system is to grow our food in a way that is regenerating our planet instead of harming it. Climate Farmers believe that regenerative agriculture is the pathway to reach this goal.

 

“Out of 475 hectares on the farm, I only have access to water in about 250 Ha. Now that I can invest in a water network I can pump water up the hills. In doing so, I’ll be able to make the farm more resilient, use the land economically and at the same time regenerate paddocks.”

Method

Soil Sequestration

Soil sequestration involves the management of land to enhance the passage of carbon dioxide through plants and into soils and the subsequent storage and protection of that carbon in the soil. The potential of this method is driven by the vast storage capacity of soils.
