Organic farming since 1997.

Agroecology since always!

We make agriculture meet ideology, in search of a sustainable planet and food abundance.

Sharing the Food

Food at the
Montado do Freixo do Meio

Produtos alimentares do Freixo do Meio

To feed from the Montado do Freixo do Meio is to share an essential good which is obtained in agroecological fashion. This means it respects the soils and the natural cycles of fertility, boosts biodiversity, does not use chemicals or transgenics for two decades and promotes the regeneration of the forest.

This agricultural model allows that the meat, vegetables and processed products are possessed with exceptional flavors, freshness and quality, at the same time it provides for a whole community committed to the preservation of this Natural System.

The Organic production of the Montado do Freixo do Meio is certified by Kiwa Sativa (PT-BIO-03)

A Seven Century Tradition

We recovered the ancient legacy of the Montado

Representação do mês de Novembro no Missal Antigo do Lorvão, séc. XV

 

In 1990 the Herdade do Freixo do Meio only produced wheat and lamb and no food was processed. However, if we went back 50 years, dozens of types of food were produced, transformed and consumed at Freixo do Meio.

By returning to the agricultural and social model of the Montado, we experienced the effects brought by the complexification of the natural system and were impacted by the results: a significant abundance of food. In thirty years, we recreated and created more than five hundred types of food originated on the Agro-forestry of Montado do Freixo do Meio, we now share daily with thousands of satisfied customers.

Our food is mostly processed on site, with ingredients produced by us in organic fashion and directly shared by the cooperative.

CSA - Community that Supports Agriculture

Sharing the Harvest

Entrega de alimentos

The Sharing the Harvest CSA Program started in 2015, being a pioneer in Portugal.

It is a conscious, responsible, proximity model of production and consumption of organic food. It establishes a mutual commitment between consumers and those who do the production, connected by the values of solidarity, and based on the recognition of food as a Common Good.

Trough the subscription of production quotas at a fixed price, weekly or every two weeks you receive a basket with a selection of garden products, meat, eggs, bread, milk, cheese, soup, among many other products, which, are grown, harvested, and transformed at the Herdade do Freixo do Meio, or by partner producers, directly from the farm to your table.

By sharing the crops, it is possible to have safer planning, avoiding therefore the scourge of food waste.
