  • Description


    We are at our farm 5 Km away from Setúbal, an hour south of Lisbon.
    The land is located in the beautiful Arrábida Natural Park surrounded by a vast olive orchard.
    We have a small organic vegetable garden and eat mainly vegetarian food, but we do eat fish occasionally.
    The area offers great hiking and mountain-biking opportunities and Setúbal is a nice town with museums, restaurants and a great food market. There are also beautiful beaches nearby.
    There is a public bus to Setúbal, Lisbon and other locations 5 minutes away.
    It's our aim to become self sustainable on the long run using permaculture designs and have a holistic approach to the management of the farm.
    We are looking forward to welcome you at our farm and live and work together with you.
