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.
