We arrived in Alto Tâmega in 2017, more precisely in Montalegre, around Alto Rabagão’s dam and we fell in love with the place and its energy.
We decided to be part of it and integrate the dynamics of eco-farming & eco-construction, in order to fight against global warming and be responsible for the upcoming generations.
Elected World Agricultural Heritage in 2019, the Barroso Region was one of the 3 European regions highlighted with its authenticity, biodiversity, ancestral farming practices, and uniqueness.
The cooperation between Hortalegre and “Cooperativa Agrícola do Barroso” inspired us to use permaculture and Biodynamic Agriculture, practiced without and inner plantation. Moon and Planet influence are also factors used in our plantations.
