Quinta Alvarinheira - 3 Days Experience

150,00 €  

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 will 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 will 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.

Since then the economics of agriculture has changed and today the quinta is a fraction of its former self, though we continue to harvest fruits and vegetables, and provide pasture for dozens of cows and sheep.
