Default British run farms in Spain?

Hi,

I was curious if there are many British run farms in Spain and if this is something that is viable for someone planning to relocate to Spain and start a venture of this kind? This could be along the lines of a more commercial venture or a personal project on private land. It would be great to know if there are others doing this, especially in the Andalucía region.

Thanks in advance.
Amy

I seem to remember a similar thread a while ago with someone who had a similar idea - non-starter IMO.

The only ones I'm aware of are veg farms such as owned by Guy Shropshire. Google him. But he's pretty big.
I once applied for a farm manager's job near Ronda, a 600ha 'finca' owned by Zac Goldsmith, the former editor of The Ecologist/MP.
What would be the difference for you between a British run one and an enterprising Spanish one?

Andalucia. Olives, asparagus, fruit and veg. I would make sure you had a good supply of water. It is going to get hotter and drier.

Maybe a niche market like specialist veg and herbs for upmarket restaurant.

Doesn't that niche market already exist? On Goodbye Deutschland a guy called Andre started selling veg in Arico Tenerife to upmarket restaurants, but being on a TV show probably helps and he still doesn't seem to be that successful. It's all about connections and why should the Spanish restaurant owner now buy from a foreigner instead of the local Spanish seller? Even the foreign business owner prefers the local Spanish supplier because it gives him more connections.

Pistachio trees are resistant to heat and draught. Saffron can deal with severe conditions (hot & dry) but the inital planting is expensive and the harvesting is a pain.
