We are a sustainable farming project started by Afonso and Marieke in 2015.
Our main project is the production of Medronho (strawberry tree fruit) spirit, a traditional beverage from the South of Portugal. In addition we have a large vegetable garden for self consumption and to supply the local community.
We are also constantly improving our infrastructure and landscape and we are looking for motivated Workawayers to help us take the project forward.
We are a family of 4: Afonso - Portuguese, Marieke - Belgian, and the little boys, Elias and Lucas.
During our free time, we like to go to the beach, surf, participate in local events and enjoy nature in this beautifull region.

In general we offer very good living conditions to our visitors. The coast line is only some 5km away. Surfboards and bikes are available. The region offers great surfing and hiking/trekking conditions.
As a growing business, there will be plenty of opportunities to learn how to develop a sustainable farming business.
Workawayers will have the opportunity to learn more about organic farming, forest conservation, destilling and eco-building.
Workawayers with experience in farming and/or building are always welcome. People with little experience are also welcome since pratical training is provided.
Currently we are looking for a long term couple to help us manage the day to day activities. We are open to discuss specific conditions and benefits.
