Quinta da Bazágueda

If you want to have a strong experience of a day to day live in a traditional farm and see for yourself how to take care of most task almost not in use anymore in "industrial" farms! Quinta da Bazágueda is a very ancient farm. It's a farm, in it's true meaning, not a house with a garden or little field with crops. Beeing an ancient farm, it has very basic acomodation. The houses are from the 16th century or older, so they are cold in winter, of course. If you come in a rainy day, as in all rainy days, the farm work must go on and some of the tasks cannot be delayed. Also keep in mind that it's not possibly to make a specific food for you if you have a very diferent diet from "most" people. We always have vegetable soup, so if you're vegetarian you're welcome to come, but if the rest of the team is having meat, with plain rice you can have soup with rice, but not a specific dish just for you, unless you provide it. At last, keep in mind that the farm is ISOLATED. This means is 12 km from the nearest village! You can walk in or out of the farm as you want, but the farm only provides car rides to volunteers in the previously agreed days of arrival and departure. All other rides must be on agreement. Having this in mind, please read the full extent of the profile, including REFERENCES and, in case you want, make a hosting request or ask anything if you have doubts. We can assure, this will be a true experience, witch you cannot find in many places!

The work is sometimes hard, but somehow adaptable to your best skills. You'll be explained about the reasons and importance of your tasks and you're alway welcome to ask if in doubt.

The short time i spent there was a real adventure i will never forget! The way of living and working was a totally new and awesome experience i would recommend to everyone how is openminded enough to try something new. Especially the animals and the beautiful nature conquered my heart.
Tip: if you want to apply for the summer months then you should be capable of doing manual work in really hot temperatures.

This experience is definitely something I think everyone should have. The hosts are dedicated to maintaining a way of life that people have lived in for centuries. It is a great test of endurance to see what you are capable of handling. The lack of wifi and cell service was perfect for detoxing. The work hours were long and the facilities were very rustic, but the environment, the wildlife, the sounds, and the food, were all reward enough. I'm planning on returning one day, and I will always be grateful to have had this experience which has given me a whole new way to see the world.
