We are a Belgian couple and this is our first year on our new farm in the beautiful Alentejo region 15mins from the beach.
It's just the 2 of us but a lot of animals already. We are planning to start a commercial organic mixed orchard or 'food forest'. But this will take us 1 or 2 more years. For now we could really use some help setting up our garden and animal systems. We are already 80% self sufficient in veggies, eggs and meat. With your help we believe we can increase this further.

We start the day doing the daily chores; feeding/moving animals & vegetable garden. After this is we start working on whatever project we have going on. Often we have several and you can choose whatever intrests you most. If you want to know what we are working on the period you want to come, just ask.

We have a second building with a basic but fully stocked kitchen and bathroom for volunteers. Sometimes you will be asked to cook for yourselve with the food we provide. The meals can be 100% vegetarian, but omnivores can get meat from our own animals once or twice a week.

We have a big tent and caravan for you to stay in.

What to bring:
Decent footwear for working is a must for safety
You should bring: a pair of (safety) shoes. sunhat, (head)light, sleeping bag. -sunscreen-!-
We have tents so no need to bring one. But you can if you rather bring your own. Rubber boots are always nice in winter.

If you have any questions feel free to contact us.
