Organic farm Azeitona Verde
Our adventure through the lands of the Alto Alentejo began in mid-2003; when, in the midst of a busy professional life and inevitable responsibilities that go with it, we felt it was time to return to a simpler way of living in order to enjoy life. We want to share with you this simple of wholesome countryside life.
Welcome to the countryside and to Azeitona Verde.

Azeitona Verde Farm
We believe that’s important to respect biodiversity and environmental sustainability. We promote and maintain a balance between tradition and innovation in the local community; we are investing in totally organic environmentally friendly methods because we believe it is best for us, for the animals, the environment and obviously because everything tastes better.
The mission and the purpose of organic Farm AZEITONA VERDE is to increase public awareness about healthy, seasonal and sustainable food. Join us and help us create more awareness about how Portugal eats, and can do it in a simple way, just start to supporting our local agriculture, shopping locally and seasonally, strolling through our countryside and forests, visiting the local farmers and producers.
“We want to share with you this simple love of wholesome countryside lifestyle through the products that we produce and other regional products that we have selected for you.”
Our farm is at the end of a road lined with oaks and chestnut trees, in a wooded countryside in the midst of the protected Natural Park of Serra de São Mamede, here a organic ancestral olive grove from which comes our organic extra virgin olive oil Azeitona Verde and a organic vegetable garden await you.
Marvão has a cheerful, verdant landscape where Pyrenean oak, chestnut, Holm oaks, cork oaks and pine thrive. When we arrive here, it seems that we are in another world and appreciate things in a different state of mind. Everything is calmer and has more flavour; we cannot help feeling that the simple things in life are the ones that really matter.
