Quinta das Abelhas
Organic Smallholding in Central Portugal.
Quinta das Abelhas (Honeybee Farm) is a 4 hectare organic smallholding situated in the 'green heart' of the Beiras region of central Portugal. Nestling in a terraced valley, we enjoy incredible views of the Serra do A?or and Serra da Estrela mountain ranges. We moved here in May 2003 having only ever grown small amounts of veg in our back gardens, so this is a big adventure for us. It's proving to be a lot of learning, a lot of hard work, and (most of the time) a lot of fun! We offer cheap and cheerful camping and we also welcome WWOOF and other volunteers on working 'holidays' (free camping and meals in return for your work). Ideal for back packers, gap year students, or anyone who'd like to sample an alternative way of life and/or learn more about organic farming and low-impact living. We are WWOOF Independents hosts (no: POR054). www.portugalsmallholding.org
