The farm Quinta do Queijao is at the edge of a small village in the Viseu district of central Portugal. The land is almost two hectares including woodland, terraces for growing, fruit trees (mostly apple and pear), kiwi vines and lots of grape vines.

Our goal is to bring the farm back into production using organic methods and permaculture principles. In our gardens we produce almost all the vegetables we need for our own consumption. We are expanding the gardens to try to provide a small income by selling at local markets or direct to restaurants.

We offer helpers an apartment to stay in with two double bedrooms, living room and balcony. There is a shared bathroom and kitchen and a pool for summer.

We ask for five hours work a day, with varying work depending on what projects we are doing at that time. At the moment we are restoring a building. The new roof is on and watertight. Current jobs include weeding and watering, preparing and sowing beds, planting out seedlings, building a new chicken coop, harvesting and storing food and picking grapes to press for juice. We are looking for independent people whom we can trust to be left to get on with tasks.

Minimum stay would be one week but longer stays possible. If you think you would like to come and stay here and help then please get in touch. We look forward to hearing from you.
