🌿At A Quinta, meaning 'farm' in Portuguese, we have established a small permaculture farm nestled in the picturesque town of Salir do Porto along the Portuguese ocean coastline. 🌿 We take great pride in the diversity of our farm family and the collaborative efforts that shape our sustainable practices.

Join us on a journey as we introduce the invaluable members of our team, each playing a unique role in our thriving ecosystem. Over the past four years, we've dedicated ourselves to the transformation of challenging sandy and clay soil into rich, fertile ground. Today, our farm is an oasis where a diverse array of plants, crops, and trees flourish.

At A Quinta, we believe in the power of sustainable agriculture and the positive impact it can have on our environment. We invite you to explore the beauty of our permaculture farm, where the harmony between nature and cultivation creates a truly unique and vibrant experience.
