Farm exchange in central Portugal – I am a Dutch female trying to live the good life on a small farm with olives, grapes and all kinds of fruit trees. And a no-dig, organic vegetable garden. At the moment I only have two young female goats and chickens. I preserve a lot of my food by canning, pickling, fermenting and dehydration and would like to teach that to others.
