Corn Farm Experience

35,00 €  

Located in the heart of Ribatejo, the corn farm exploits over 500 hectares to produce mostly maize. Now in its 3rd generation, it is a family business pioneering the latest technologies in agriculture.

Concerned with environmental impact, the farmers are leading several projects that increase local biodiversity. The farm recently became wholly energy self-sufficient through focusing on the production of photovoltaic energy. A low-cost biodiversity management model is achieved through internal resources that can be expanded and replicated in other maize intense farms in the Tagus Valley.

Corn is a popular grain grown in many parts of the world, extensively used as food or for animal feed due to its remarkable nutritional qualities, containing almost all known amino acids.

Come and discover the rich culture and history behind maize production in Portugal with farmers at the forefront of innovation in environmental agriculture.
