Enjoy an amazing cork farm tour close to Évora

Cork production in Alentejo, Portugal, is a significant industry, as the region is one of the world’s major cork-producing areas.

Alentejo is known for its vast expanses of cork oak forests, covering approximately one-third of Portugal’s cork oak stands. These trees are the source of cork, with the outer bark harvested periodically in a sustainable manner.

Cork harvesting in Alentejo often follows traditional methods that have been passed down through generations. The outer bark of the cork oak, known as the cork cambium layer, is carefully stripped from the tree without harming its inner layers. This process is usually done by skilled workers known as “corticeiros.”

Our farm is a traditional farm that produces cork in a family environment.

The highlight of my trip Renee A

The highlight of my trip to Lisbon with my three children (19, 17 and 14) was our experience at this magical farm. Every detail was thought out with love and care - the beautiful cork trees, the organic products, the delicious food and most of all the conversation. This experience is an absolute must!! I can't wait to come back again next time I am in Lisbon. With gratitude. Renee

Incredible experience that I highly recommend! Matthew

Incredible experience that I highly recommend! This was, without a doubt, our best & favorite day in Portugal. We met the farmer at the "herdade" in the morning where we had a casual discussion about the day ahead & Portuguese agriculture in general. The cork production it's huge and we learn a lot of new things! Thank you, PFE, very much!!
