  • Description

    Description

    This is a 18 hectare organic farm where we produce mixed cereals and vegetables and also breed horses, donkeys, chickens, bees, goats and a pig! We have a fruit orchard with old fruit varieties and a synergic vegetable garden.
    The farm is also the seat of an association which promotes organic cultivation and awareness. we are also a didactic farm so we work with schools and childrens to show them the life in a organic natural farm.

    I live on the farm with Cristina, two helpers and some guys helping us! other friends help us and come here when they have the possibility.

    We speak basic English, are vegetarian and non-smokers. Minimum time of stay is 2 weeks.

  • Help

    Help

    Help is needed in the vegetable garden, with wood cutting, fencing, with domestic jobs and preparing meals. I ask your patience with the fact that we cannot always work alongside you. We are interested in the training of animals, their use in agriculture and Pet therapy. We are interested in construction using green methods, straw bales, clay and other natural materials and we are hoping to transform the farm into a social and teaching farm. Occasionally there are holiday / weekend programs for children on the farm.
