  • Description

    Description

    This is an authentic ORGANIC farm with 300 years of history, located nearby Marco de Canaveses and ancient Roman settlement Tongobriga. We have a space of more than 20 hectares were we run our business in agriculture and ecotourism. We have a lot of animals more than 1000 fruit trees, forests, fields, gardens. Very beautiful. Portuguese tourists, as well as visitors from abroad, come frequently to stay at our farm and enjoy this pure nature and biodiversity.

    We´ve got a lot of various work to do here, so each day is different from the previous one: it can be agricultural work (greenhouses, harvesting, gardening, help in the warehouse, taking care of animals, plantation, general maintenance, etc.) or something more creative (work with children, photography, social media, talking to people, etc.). We expect you can contribute about 20-25 hours per week of your time to help our farm. You don´t need any specific knowledge or competences to work here, but if you like nature, animals, a sustainable lifestyle, biodiversity and everything which is authentic, our farm is just the right place for you to stay!

    We offer accommodation + amazing Portuguese food with a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables + guided tours around nearby + a lot of fun with locals + Portuguese classes.

    We can pick you up in Porto and bring you here. Also, we go to Lisbon twice a week (Monday and Wednesday), so transportation is not a problem.

    Any questions, don´t hesitate!
