Our producer

Our farm is a 120-year-old house and farm that once dominated many hundreds of surrounding hectares of the croplands surrounding it. Since then, the economics of agriculture have changed, and today the farm is a fraction of its former self, though we continue to harvest fruits and vegetables and provide pasture for dozens of cows and sheep.

Deep in the interior of Portugal, there is a farm that is attempting to bring new economic life to the area. Our farm is a micro-village of activity in the zone where value-added products are slowly replacing the traditional agricultural practices. During your visit, you can see how at the farm these new activities exist side-by-side with traditional ones. Moreover, we invite you to visit our display of old farming practices and rural economics. While in the town of Oledo, you also get a glimpse of the life and people of Beira Baixa, including the option to visit the important landmarks of the area: Monsanto and Idanha-a-Velha.
