    Description

    Hi, I'm Marije, been living for 3 years in Portugal to follow my passion: making olive oil and teaching all about it. Together with my Portuguese husband Gui we are slowly expanding our farmland to a little olive paradise. I studied olive tasting and growing in Sevilla and well connected around this industry in Portugal. We have conquered floods, fires and most recent hurricane Leslie. So you can imagine we can use a little help to get back on track...

    If you are interested in the annual Olive Harvest, we only start planning this around September 2019, so check around that time. The rest of the year we do a lot of other landwork, planting, grafting, vegetable garden, building, animal care, bottling, packaging and much much more.

    Farmstay and help: As we invest as much of our family energy and knowledge in to you and the workday hours (9-12) are no biggie we see this as an mutual experience and way to meet new people. This side is unpaid but you are in an awesome little village with your own private studio, bathroom, internet and other facilities like a semi-professional kitchen with smoker, barbeque, etc.
