We are a self supporting organic farm and our main activity is goat cheese production. Our farm exists since 1984, when we built our farm starting just with a few goats. Nowadays, the farm accounts more than 100 goats, 10 black pigs and 20 chickens.
We are located in a small valley near a water reservoir, and the entire farm is surrounded by forest and different types of agrarian and wild landscape. Our land is built in small terraces, where we grow all the vegetables we eat, fruits, corn for bread baking, olives for oil and grapes for juice, additionally we also grow all the animal feed we need for our livestock.
Almost all of our food comes from our farm, which includes vegetables, olive oil, pig, chicken and goat meat. During all year we need help from volunteers in a variety of activities, which includes planting, weeding, watering, crop harvesting, cutting food for the animals, making hay, olive harvesting, cleaning manure out of the stables, grape juice making, amongst oth... more inside

Interested in travelling to Portugal and see the country starting from the coastal centre? Would you like to exchange your help for free accommodation and some meals?

I am a 67-year old retired teacher and I live in a house situated on a hill, surrounded by nature, incredibly at a 10-minutes walking distance from Leiria, a small city in Central Portugal, 20km far from the Ocean.
The hill was a former farm that produced wine but is no longer cultivated. I need some help to do some works like weeding the big garden, cleaning paths, pruning, rebuilding, etc.
On arrival, I'd show you a list of what I'd like you to do and you would be free to organize your timetable. You may work as long as you like a day and take free days to rest or to do anything you like, providing that at the end of the agreed time of stay we are both happy with the result of your contribution.
You'd get a bedroom of your own and I'd be glad to share the kitchen with you.

Hello dear friends of nature! My name is Andi, original from Switzerland but living in this beautiful area of Portugal since 25 years. The farm is embeded in a national park. I'm not really a farmer. My idea was (and still is) to build up a natural growing landscape. But the nature needs a little assist..and this means work. Too much for only one person.
I'm looking for allrounders, people who like to work outdoors...gardening,watering,planting trees,cuting brambles,pickin' olives and so on. But are also able to work with wood,all kind of repairings on the two houses,paintings,etc.
I can offer free accomodation. You live in a small apartement with bedroom and a little kitchen.
Almost forgot to mention my friendly dog Zora. She likes to go for a walk..;) Musicians are very welcome. Rehearsal-room available. Music is my hobby..and my love.
I prefere long therm stay, at least one month, if possible.
Any questions...just contact me!

We are a dutch couple, living at the edge of a very small village in the center of Portugal.
We have many plans and ideals and are willing to learn every day.

June 2017 there was the big forest fire in the area where we live (Pedrógão Grande) and our house, machinery, equipmwet and land burned down completely.
No compensation from the state, not enough money to rebuild or substitute other things,
but we go on. Steady, slowly and in good faith we'll recover from the blow.

Over winter and spring (2018) a new house was built and we partly recovered the ruine.
Part of the old kitchen with the ancient wood oven is recovered and in full use for making pizzas and other dishes.

Although there still are many burned trees that needs to be cut, nature is recovering fast.
The land looks different than before the fire, but is still very beautiful and will be paradise again.
There is plenty to do on the land, the former gardens, the forest and the house.

We keep 20 goats... more inside

Since it´s inception 20 years ago the grounds at Moinhos Velhos have been developed following the organic principles of synergistic gardening & permaculture. There are over 40 mature varieties of fruit & nut trees alone.

Moinhos Velhos is a holistic health retreat for fasting, detoxification, cleansing and purification of body, mind and spirit for our clients. At the same time we want to maintain our permaculture and conventional vegetable gardens and greenhouse to provide us with a greater yield of organic food.

We currently need help on our grounds to assist in new eco-projects, tree & vegetation maintenance & to increase food production yields. We also need help with cooking for staff, juicing for guests, and other day to day tasks. We ask for 6 hours work, five days a week in return for your own room and vegetarian meals. We have free wi-fi and there is a car available for use on your days off.

Hello everybody! We are a big family that 8 years ago bought, together with several other families, a land to make our dream come true: live in harmony with nature and with each other, and create a little paradise to raise up our children. This years we have been creating spaces - by now almost each family has built their house to live, and we even built the "homeschooling" school of our little village.
The quinta where we live together is a very special place: it is big and wild, has an incredibly beautiful river, pure air and water, and is surrounded by only more wild nature. We are totally off-the-grid: our water comes from a nearby spring, we use only renewable energies as a source of electricity, and we have compost toilets.
Oraibi, a part of the whole community, works like this: We are a big family with small children, trying to educate them, build a bigger house and get sustainable, everything at the same time :) So a lot of things (and life force) going on here...

I live below the Gardunha mountains on a small organic quinta with olive trees and woodland.

This year I'm building a house on the footprint of an old brick barn. The planned building will be part natural build, using earth plaster over straw bales, cob, cordwood etc.

I'm not a builder and this is a big task, so I'm looking for willing people who want to get stuck into the project with me and learn some natural building skills. This is an opportunity to get hands-on natural build experience in a fun, relaxed environment with elements of teaching from an experienced natural build teacher but without the expense of a course or workshop.

A professional natural builder will be putting up the timber frame and roof. The earth plastering, cob, cordwood etc. begins in May 2019 and will be ongoing into summer. It's a project with an organic flow and no deadline, so helping hands will be welcome throughout. I'm looking for volunteers from late April onwards and ask for a minimum sta... more inside
