    Looking for a workawayer who has skills with power tools, chainsaw, brush trimmer, hedger, rototiller also with a drivers licence. Getting into winter clean up time and preparing areas for RVs

    The farm is going in a transition phase. My Dad who was my farm partner just recently passed away. Its a difficult time and help here will be focused on next stages for the farm. If you are someone who is understanding this could be a good fit for exploring central Portugal.

    Also at this time there is an opportunity for a long stay for the right person(s). If I can go back to Canada for a month that would be why the longstay opportunity. so I can train you on living here while I am gone. could be 2 month trip for me and a month to teach the ins and outs of the farm, area and animal care. I am open to longer visits if interest is there.

    This is a personal farm not a business a very important distinction. Although in time we will make a business right now it is prep stage.

    A small offgrid rustic farm in the center of Portugal. living the simple life while still having the convenience of modern life without all the fluctuating bills. I am from Canada, The farm has a Donkey of the Portuguese breed Mirandes. The race was almost extinct a few years ago so we are happy to help keep the breed awareness up. We have a few dogs that are big but very cute and love farm life. Of course a few free range good time chickens laying eggs.

    4 hectares on a hill overlooking a valley and Nazare. From the farm you can see the ocean and Nazare. The sun sets and rises in perfect form for viewing daybreak and sunsets. The nights are filled with stars and the moon passes at the perfect direction for viewing. Creating a future space in a rural area that I wish to have open to rustic camping and RV Travelers. Almost half way there so more work needs to be done.

    If you are looking for a place to explore the center of Portugal and work for a place to stay and meals. Then this would be ideal. We are offgrid and can show people how to be self sufficient and live within their means to build their own paradise somewhere. Maybe you have more skills to show me things. Its all welcome.

    Someone coming should have a drivers licence as we are in a rural setting but not far from towns and cities. Nazare 5 kms Alcobaca 5 kms If you would like to find out more send a message and we can chat.

    My Father who was my farm partner just passed away. He is the one in the picture with the flowers. He will be greatly missed. RIP BigAlf!

    The help we are needing to get done are general farm task. It will be building fences, fixing fences, moving water, animal care, Garden maintenance, Lawn cutting, Firewood and other day to day chores. it will be 2 to 3 hrs a day. Going to town to pick up supplies, so a drivers licence is needed.

    We eat all kinds of food, country cooking with all homemade meals. Meat is on the menu but we are happy to make vegetarian dishes. If you have a very specific diet rural Portugal may not be for you as some items are difficult to find but vegetables, legumes, fruits, nuts are plenty.

    We are looking for people who may want a longstay. Ideally meeting someone or couple who can stay for a few months by themselves at the farm is what we would like to meet and train.

    If you are in an RV it would be perfect. someone who can drive is most important. here is a truck and a car available to use for personal trips too. The work would not be everyday.
