About us

We are a german couple, Angelika and Dieter, living in the south of Portugal (Alentejo) near the border to the Algarve.
Since about 30 years we run here our little self sufficient organic farm "Monte do Compromisso". Before moving to Portugal we did farming for 10 years, which gives us 40 years of experience in the fields of gardening and animal holding. All our activities are based on organic and ecological principles. In our work we find it important to treat ressources with care and constantly develop innovative solutions as close as possible to nature. In our farm permaculture is not only theory but succesfully practiced.

Beside our work on the farm Angelika engages in creative activities and Dieter is project manager for landscape construction. Our three children grew up on the farm and are independent now.

The farm is about 45 acres big. 2000 qm of this area is a permaculture garden. We have chicken, ducks, sheep and bees. Passion fruit, melon, oranges, kiwi and avocado belong to the culinary delights of our garden.

Next to our house we have a well appointed workshop for wood and metal working.
