  • Descripción


    Hi, I’m Filippo, I am 30 years old and come from Italy. After years of living all around the world, I permanently moved to Portugal in 2020 to start building my own farm.

    I have a classic education in Agriculture. I studied and worked all over the world before starting my own project. Now my time is split up between developing my farm and cultivating 2 additional hectares of vineyards that I am slowly recovering and bringing back to production for winemaking. Volunteers are asked to only help on the farm but if they show interest in vineyards and their cultivation I will be happy to give some insights.

    The farm is around 3 Ha, with the main house, veggie garden, pine forest and more. It’s an idyllic place in the countryside just 10 minutes drive from some of the most beautiful beaches Portugal has to offer. The main village, Aljezur can be reached by bicycle or car in just a few minutes. There you will find anything you need (pharmacy, grocery store, farmers market, shops, …)

    To run and manage the farm we take inspiration from permaculture, market gardening and traditional farm practices learned through direct experience with local farmers. We are not fanatic on one way of farming and we take what we think works good for us from each different philosophy. The core of the project is to provide an effective design in order to minimize inputs, improving soil quality and generating a balanced system.

    We will be sharing good times on the land and I can give you some precious local insights on things to do around the area. There is always a lot to do, share and learn from each other. I speak Italian, French, English, Portuguese and Spanish. Again, I have a higher education in agriculture and years of experience in the field and I will be happy to share some insights on how the things happen here on the farm.

    The accommodation consists in a fantastic place at the bottom of the property. There is a big 4 m bell tent which is suitable to groups of up to 3 friends or couples. In addition there’s another 3 people camping tent that is usually occupied by a single person or a couple. The space also includes an outside shower, compost toilet and outside kitchen with gas stoves. You will find all you need for a comfortable stay. There will be a maximum of 4 people sharing the whole place, lots of room for everybody.

    If you have a van or personal tent you can also choose to set it up and access kitchen and bathroom.

    No pets allowed.

    Food provided from veggie garden plus basics such as pasta, rice, ... If you have particular needs, you're vegan or vegetarian and want particular foods that will be on you. I will be happy to suggest local markets to source the best produce.

    Algo más...

    There is so much to do on your time off. From surfing or chilling on one of the several amazing beaches around the area. You can explore the countryside and its small villages, check out local pottery shops and just have a good time. If you wish, there is also the possibility for some paid extra jobs that you can perform during your time off (land clearing, small construction/painting jobs and other similar tasks). I can sometimes provide a bicycle to go to town but a car or some basic transportation is needed to fully enjoy the area. There is also a bus that goes from the farm to the village and from the village to the beach.

    I currently don't have WiFi that can reach the volunteer's area so you will need to take care of it yourself. There is also a great cafe/coworking space just few minutes from the farm that offer some great coffee and vegetarian/vegan meals.
