The Exchange

Hi, we are Heinrich , Peregrina and Najuka .We live in Portugal for 9 and 45 years. We live in a small farm in a beautiful environment in the south of Portugal, close to Monchique. We have a clay house with 2 separate rooms for guests,also a camping van and some tents. We want to turn our place into a permaculture system with all kinds of vegetation. We try to build a sustainable living. We keep 12 milking goats and make cheese every other day.
