    We are Michael and Mary, experienced farmers with a background of organic farming in the UK.
    Our Quinta here in the Beiras is an 8 hectare established bio / eco farm, powered entirely on a combination of solar and hydro power. At present we have chickens for meat and eggs, and a gang of peacocks. Once we have replaced our fencing and created a new pig pen we will be reintroducing pigs and establishing a flock of sheep..

    We are situated next to the Ecopista do Dao which is a 50 km long bicycle and pedestrian path running between Santa Comba Dao and Viseu so we are in a stunning spot and there are plenty of opportunities for enjoying nature. The Quinta borders the Dao and two beautiful natural swimming spots.
