About us

We arrived to Alto Tâmega in 2017, more precisely in Montalegre district around the 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 with 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 with out and inner plantation. Moon and Planet influence are also factors used in our plantations.

Can I create my own basket?

The composition of the basket is made according to the availability of the products, so we do not allow changes for the weekly baskets.

Are all products Biologic ?

Yes, everything that we plant, grows in biological terrain. We work with products without pesticides.
The organic ones are also products without pesticides, with the difference of being certified with a seal of the Ministry of the Environment.
Therefore, all products are free from pesticides, but not all have Organic certification.

Where do Hortalegre products come from?

HortAlegre has its roots in Montalegre. Our name was mainly inspired in our region.
Right at the north of Portugal, already on the border with Spain, you’ll find the beautiful region of Barroso, and it’s here, right at this point, where Montalegre takes place. Long ago Celtic region where Celtic civilizations lived on these mountains, Montalegre has still some events related with this era.
