We are a family with 4 children aged 13, 9,7 & 3 who have just purchased a 5 hectare quinta with its own stream flowing through it on which we have plans to make a vegetarian family community. We have already put in a 120m bore to provide us with plenty of pure drinking water. The stream provides us with water for growing all the food we require and we have a tractor to plough the fields. presently we are starting to renovate the old stone building to build a community kitchen. We envisage people living in Yurts around the main building , ours has just arrived so we will be building that soon. We have plans for chicken for eggs and goats for milk and a donkey or horse for the children to ride. We are looking to live a simple life as close to nature as we can, in tune with the seasons and our environment. If this is the sort of life you are looking for please get in contact with us.

  3. Nicbar1984

    I am very, very interested in your post and offer. Are you still seeking folk?

    I bring strength, some construction experience, an eagerness to learn more about self-sufficient living, I have extensive experience of working with children, and I believe myself to be a good neighbor.

    Hi Da Paz. I’m Gordy and I’m really desperate to join a homesteading community. I’m a 22 yr old single guy who is a quick learner and what I lack in skills, I make up for eagerness. I have not responsibilities to anyone other than myself and if you would have me join me family, I will be forever grateful. You can contact me on @gfehi25@gmail.com
    I also have an Instagram with the same handle as my handle here. My full name is Gordwyn. Pls get in touch with me. 🤞🏿

    Hi there,

    Me and my partner are looking to move off grid in Portugal, he is a carpenter and has many year building experience. I am learning the art of tattooing whilst also working as a styling. We have been wanting to live off grid for years before we found each other and Portugal was on our list of places to explore this idea. We also envisaged having yurts and running it s a sort of business as a way to generate some income. We would love to have animals and make a more simple life connected to nature.
    If you are interested in talking more please email,

      Are you still looking for people to join your community?

    Hi, I’m Diana!
    I am 25 years old and my dreams are as big as yours. I frequently talk to others about this dream but get scoffed at for wanting to go off the grid. I am an army veteran, the army taught me skills in electrical work which I may be able to bring those skills to a community. I’d love to chat more!
