Enjoy an amazing cork farm tour around Redondo (Évora)
Our farm is located on the foothills of the Serra D’Ossa, in the Alentejo region of Portugal. Owned by an Anglo-Portuguese family for over 5 generations, the 540-hectare farm was originally dedicated to cork forestry and livestock, activities administrated from its farmhouse built in the traditional style, overlooking the surrounding countryside.
Discover the cork oak forest by (or while) hiking through our quiet fields. Embrace your senses’ experiences. Learn all about what cork is today and its heritage.
What we do:
- Arrival to the farm and welcome;
- Put on your hiking shoes – set off for a peaceful hike among friends and seize what nature provides along the trails: warm sun or cork tree shade;

- Caress the cork – know the cork forest intimately by taking it in with your every awaken sense like you have never imagined;
- Treasure all of the pauses – collect each moment with the fauna, flora, water springs and overall scenery as a cherished memory to share;
- Challenge yourself – Hike up the hill for a 360º rewarding view over the farm boundaries, the beautiful Serra D’Ossa and your next trail.

Portugal is famous for its cork production (accounting for nearly 50% of annual supply) and it can be seen atop wine bottles and in souvenir form all over Lisbon – but how is it made? We transport you to the heart of its production, at a farm in Redondo that applies ecological concepts alongside the medieval montado ecosystem, resulting in an innovative approach to the protection and harvest of their cork oak trees. Set in the beautiful Alentejo region, you will be immersed in the Mediterranean traits.
- The tour will always depend on the weather conditions;
- Wear comfortable hiking shoes.

Foi uma experiência única e inesquecível! Esperávamos conhecer melhor a produção de cortiça, mas além disso, conhecemos uma pessoa incrível, com uma história de vida linda, e também um lugar preparado especialmente para nos receber. Esta fazenda e os seus ensinamentos vão com certeza ficar gravados na nossa memória desta viagem. Ficamos muito felizes, meu marido e eu!

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! 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!!
