Visit to Mas Terricabras

On September the 26th, students of the second year of agricultural production visited Mas Terricabras, an agricultural and livestock farm located in Oristà, in Lluçanès. Mas Terricabras is a family business, where the Rovira Costa family works. They received us, responded to the questions asked by the students, and showed us the livestock, the facilities and the machinery. Mas Terricabras has a diversified production and activity: the production of cereals, legumes, cruciferous crops, fattening of stock breeding calves, many of them come from the herd of cows raised in an extensive system, and one intensive pork production. Other notable aspects of the visit are: The recovery and production of a local variety of chickpeas, currently recognized as a Denomination of Origin, and which is currently difficult to carry out due to the increasing presence of wild boar, and the production of the Forment wheat’s variety. These products are marketed locally and directly, to consumers, restaurants and bakeries to produce high quality bread. The innovative spirit and the initiative made them install in the farm a renewable energy heating system, where as a fuel they consume their own shaft’s production. In addition, they also produce electricity through photovoltaic solar panels installed on the roof of farm. The school, we thank the Rovira Costa family for their kindness and time that has allowed us having the experience of doing this interesting visit.
