  • Description


    Our property is a 16.6 ha organic farm with 800 olive trees, a vineyard, 50 Bordelaira sheep, 2 horses, chickens and 3 cats and 2 dogs. We are living in Parque Serra da Estrela, close to Guarda but in the middle of nature with a special micro climate.

    All is very new to us, as we are living on the farm since February 1, 2021(!) but we really do love living the farm-live and the sustainable way of living. Every day we work with the animals, on the land, in the garden and we are improving the house. Far away from the busy and commercial live we used te have in The Netherlands. We now see ourselves as caretakers of the land and we feel very blessed to grow our own food.

    Please come and help us, learn about biodynamic preparations, olives, sheep and wine making and enjoy the clean air and clean waters! There is a lot of work and a lot of fun. You can swim in the Mondego River, sup and swim in the lake just around the corner, visit the medieval villages, go see a movie in Guarda or hike in the mountains of the Serra da Estrela. During wintertime there even is some snow in the area and you can do some skiing and sledding.

    The next coming months we need help on the farm with harvesting the olives, harvesting chestnuts, preparing the biodynamic preparations, take care of the sheep (little lambs), take care of the chickens, cats and dogs. Starting January, February we will start to prepare the vegetable garden, the vineyard and cleaning the land. Volunteering with us, is living the farm live and learning by doing.

    We do not seek help with the business or selling products.

    Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions whatsoever!

    Looking forward to be hearing from you,
    Manda & Jasper ☀️

  • Aide


    We are looking for people who can help us with biodynamic organic gardening, looking after the sheep (take a walk with them :-)) and love to cook, make jam, make ice cream and lemonade. In November/December we mostly need help with harvesting the olives. Oh and we most certainly could use help in our organic vineyard! This will start around February: preparing the plants for the next wine season.

    We have tents available with beds and bedlinnen, in wintertime we have studio's (sleeps two persons) available with your private bathroom. But it can be cold (snow) during wintertime and we do not have a central heating system in the rooms, yet. The lounge and office are warm and we love to gather there in front of the fireplace. All food and hot showers will be included and we eat organic. Cooking and cleaning we do all together on a daily basis. As we offer you our home we do expect you to keep it clean and show respect to our personal stuff.

    In your free time you can go for a swim in the river (Mondego) or go supping and swimming in the lake nearby. )We can drive you). There are a lot of walking paths (for beginners and experienced walkers) nearby. And, if you are lucky, you can do some skiing.
    Porto is a two hour drive and Coïmbra about 1,5 hour. If you want to visit Nazaré, where the big waves roll in, it will take you about 2,5 hours. We also drive you to Guarda, the busstation, the lake (to do some stand up paddling, we have the boards for you to use).
