    Description

    Hey, my name is Dan. Im 29 and originally from England.

    I have an amazing ancient 5 hector farm in a lovely little village in central portugal. The farm has all the makings of a completely self sufficient farm with large terraces and I have lots of mature fruit trees including a 200 year old mulberry tree! There is much to do on the farm and i could really do with some help restoring it to its former glory. Clearing, digging ponds, cleaning wells and water ways, pruning, building, forest maintainence, tree planting, gardening and much much more.

    I am currently renovating my stone ruin which is nearly completed and will need help on the farm keeping things manageable. Also lots of garden work :)

    I really enjoy working alongside others for that sense of achievement and teamwork. Come on over for a true sense of country living!
