Shiitake Mushroom Farm Experience
Couldn’t recommend this more! Shalane L.

We were excited to find out about Farm Tours during a recent family trip, but initially flummoxed by scheduling – which a conversation with Estêvão promptly solved. Since it was at a destination midpoint he suggested the "Visit a Shiitake Mushroom Farm," tour and even drove us himself - despite it being several hours, and through both a detour and a downpour!  We’re still flabbergasted and grateful - and it was also great to get to learn more about the company/his background. At the farm Manuel’s demonstration of the inoculation process was fascinating – and the chance to try it ourselves – great fun! The alfredo lunch was splendid – as was the homemade wine, and while we’re sorry we didn’t get to meet his wife who is the fantastic chef - we're thrilled to have enjoyed her cooking!  Additionally Manuel’s workspace/barn area is populated by numerous custom contraptions – and kept in more pristine condition then most science labs.  And as I’m late to write this, I can only imagine what he’s since been working on. Couldn’t recommend this more, many many thanks!

Wonderful tour! Judith M.

We had a wonderful day and a wonderful tour and a wonderful meal at the mushroom farm. Rodrigues drove us there and back, and provided us with a lot of information about Portugal, farming, tourism, and mushrooms. We got to learn about the farming techniques, to pick our own mushrooms, and then enjoyed a delicious picnic meal which featured mushrooms. We took some back to our apartment that evening and made a delicious stir-fry. My next trip to Portugal will definitely include another farm tour!

Very good experience! Myrna I. Lozada

Very good way to get to know the city of Torres Novas and the process of raising mushrooms by inserting boards into Carvalho or eucalyptus sticks. Fine quality mushrooms are produced, worthy of comparison at the level of world brands.

Highly recommended! Chris K.

Ask yourself, "When will I ever again have an experience visiting a mushroom?" My family of four (6 and 8 year old) absolutely loved our truly unique and memorable Portugal Farm Experience with Estevao. He accomodated us by changing our requested date to avoid going on a rainy day. Estevao picked us up promptly @ 10 am and was a personal driver for the entire day. We visited two farms, a mushroom farm, and a snail farm, both unique trips in themselves. At the mushroom farm, we saw and participated in the entire process and learned how they grow mushrooms. We had an absolutely delicious home-cooked outdoor picnic featuring freshly picked mushrooms in a variety of Portuguese dishes. Then, we travelled to the snail farm, where we met with the local farmer, learned about the process of snail farming, handled the snails, and enoyed a home cooked Portuguese Snail stew. Afterwards, Estevao drove us back to Lisbon. Estevao has a warm, genuine personality, and has many interestesting stories to share, which made the trip all the more enjoyable. Highly recommended!

Special tour! Jackie R.

The farmer is social, passionate and hard worker! He made this place so comfortable for guests. It started with a learning experience and afterwards a long and big meal at a cute spot up a hill. You also get a big box of the shiitake mushrooms which you picked yourself. Muito obrigada!
