For a long time I had a passion for Portugal and for living in the countryside. But I was manager in refugee-work in Holland, which I also did with commitment and involvement.
However, in 2010 I moved from Wageningen in the Netherlands to Terra do Milho in the Algarve, Portugal, to build up this sustainable life I desired together with my partner Tom.
Lots of things were developed since then and many of those things I had to learn from scratch. Changing 4 ha overgrown wild land into a fruit forest, keeping goats, building, making a water system for drinking and irrigation, making cheese.
Now we are coming into a new phase: sharing our experience and knowledge, and selling our products and skills. On our website and on social media you can read and see a lot of what we are doing.
