Thanks for reminding me too. Haven’t been there for a while. The great thing about the valley is that the farmers work as a cooperative, which helps get them a fairer/more consistent price for their Picota cherries and supports a more strategic long term view, where all farmers have more of a say.
It’s also worth visiting the valley in January and visit the village of Piornal for the Jarramplas Fiesta – I’ve been a few times – fantastic ( if you like throwing nabos and feeling that depth of time/cultural inheritance that some fiestas have) but dangerous too!
