Hi there,

We are Dulce and Manuel, a middle age couple who switched two years go from the urban turmoil towards a more sustainable way of living in our small certified organic farm close to Proenša-a-Velha in the region of Castelo Branco.

The farm already has a daily production of fresh eggs thanks to our chickens that, together with our two sheep, are great weed eaters and manure producers.

We really need help and truly welcome helping volunteers in farming activities such as seeding, transplanting, pruning, weeding, compost pile management, raised beds construction, wood gathering, fencing, chicken-coop construction. Not everything at the same time and not in that particular order ;)

We provide ingredients for cooking meals and place for camping; an outside dry toilet is under construction and the refurbish of an existent construction in on the go! small auto-caravans are welcome since the access of vehicles to the farm is a bit narrow.

Hi there, thanks for choosing to read our entry :))
We live on a small farm (2.2 hectares) inland of Central Portugal, 30km from the Spanish border in a beautiful wild area. From our land you can see the mountain of Monsanto (Sacred Mountain).
We have 50 olive trees, 100 vines, various fruit trees and an ever-expanding vegetable garden.
We are restoring the land; planting trees and digging ponds and swales. We are working towards a food forest, self-sufficiency, and money-less living. Those are our ultimate goals!
Volunteers will be working on any of the land projects: digging garden beds, planting trees, watering the nursery, working in the veggie garden or helping us build because we are still in the process of creating structures.
We like to use natural methods of building and work with reclaimed materials as much as possible.
We are designing our property along the lines of permaculture principles. A friend recently called our life-style 'natural living'. We don't reall... more inside

Hi. I'm Manuel, a 56 yo portuguese, living in Porto with wife and children but taking care of a family 4ha farm in CinfŃes, near the Douro Valley. I'm not a farmer but I love farming. For me farming is not something like "watch the grass grow" (although I love to plant and see plants growing) but one way to set my spirit free. Think about everything or about nothing. And make projects. One is to turn this small farm into a place even more inspiring. Did I inspire you?

Beautiful riverside quinta, with approx 3 hectares comprised of gardens and land leading down to the banks of the Rio Mondego, plus a large area of woodland on the hillside.

We have 3 dogs, chickens, and possibly 2 horses coming soon!

We are "quinta partners" Sophie and Ruan and we're developing the quinta as a small venue for Pure Portugal Living the Good Life courses and events. Quinta dos Cov§es has already hosted residential Portuguese Language courses (2 more planned for this year), Bee Keeping courses, and Vermicomposting workshops.

We'd love some help with a variety of projects both ongoing and planned - gardening, cooking, household chores, event preparation, general maintenance, clearing the woodland, cutting firewood, fencing, building work, help with the animals (horses are imminent!) and also sometimes to look after the gardens and animals if we are away.

There is a cosy and fully equipped caravan with small double bed (not great for very tall people, unles... more inside

Hi there!

Olives and Acorns is a smallholding on 5 hectares of stunning countryside in Castelo Branco region of Central Portugal. It's been 5 years since we've started our journey, and we finally feel like we know a bit more about what we are doing and can pass that knowledge along.

We've started our farm enamoured with principles of permaculture, but the project evolved into a mishmash of different agricultural ideas, homesteading methods and anything else that works in harsh dry Portuguese summers. We are loving our experiments and are constantly looking how to improve things even more!

I guess you can say that we are a homestead, aiming for as much self-sufficiency as possible, growing veg organically all year round, raising livestock for food, preserving what we harvest and building infrastructure when and as needed.

We keep sheep, pigs, goats, chickens, ducks, quail, 3 adorable and well behaved dogs and a mob of farm cats. They are all well loved, free to roam and c... more inside
