What is A Farm to Start

     A Farm to Start was born from a young Portuguese man with a long traditional family history of working the land in the rural centre of Portugal within the region of Castelo Branco.

     He could see many issues impacting his family and the local community, so his insight and passion gave him a purpose to bring positive change to the region.





Our purpose is to make it possible for people to come to the interior of the country and to develop spaces where we can all thrive. This would allow us, above all, to be sustainable in terms of food, energy and water. 

We help foreigners with the residency processes, with trips to banks, public services, etc. because we must help all those who do not speak our language.

We develop bio constructions and intend to create our own office to facilitate legalisation in our territory.

We have investor and personally owned lands that we intend to develop bio constructions that allow us to receive people who want to reside permanently, helping with maintenance and food production.

We will also develop buildings that allow us to receive visitors, helping to develop tourism in this part of the interior of the country.

On the social and ecological side, we are developing spaces where we strive for cleanliness, and later exchange parts of disordered forest (usually pine and eucalyptus in monoculture) for fruit trees.  

We preserve traditional agriculture. We produce olive oil, honey, medronho and food in our first base, where we combine this space with animals, especially goats, from which we produce the best “olive cheese!”.

We will always use environmentally friendly practices and voluntarily develop forest clearings around our spaces, which will allow us, in addition to protecting our spaces, to contribute to the reduction of biomass and fuel for fire.

We already have several properties available to share, which we are developing and some of which we intend to sell. We have properties in the municipalities of Proença-a-Nova, Sertã and Oleiros and others that we know the owners and facilitate the processes… And the perspective is to grow!
