Our farm is located in the heart of Ribatejo, where it exploits more than 500 hectares to produce mostly maize. It’s a family business where management is already in the third generation. This farm is a great user of the latest technologies for agriculture.
Our producer has a big concern about the reduction of environmental impact, with several projects linked to the increase in local biodiversity. Recently, it became self-sufficient in energy with the focus on the production of photovoltaic energy. A low-cost biodiversity management model is therefore used, which can be done with internal resources and ability to be expanded and replicated in other maize intense farms in the Tagus Valley.
Corn is a well-known cereal grown in many parts of the world. Corn is extensively used as human food or for animal feed due to its nutritional qualities. It is one of the most nutritious foods that exist, containing almost all known amino acids, with the exception of lysine and tryptophan.
