Love The Planet, Buy Organic!
Amendoeira Organics was set up at the beginning of 2020. Just as the pandemic swept cross the world, bringing economies and countries to a standstill we received our EU Organic certification and decided to start growing organic fruit, nuts and vegetables.
Initially we shared our produce with a few friends and neighbours, and gradually this group of customers (and friends) grew. In December 2020 we started selling our produce on Saturday’s at the Loule farmers market. We love being at the market and continue to go there every week.
As organic farmers we are committed to learning and applying regenerative and sustainable farming practices. Our aim is to continually improve the quality of the soil and the environment, while growing and selling fresh organic produce. We are only selling locally (to reduce the carbon footprint of the farm) and to ensure the produce as fresh as possible. (Most orders are harvested within 48 hours of delivery.) We obviously do not use any chemical pesticides, and fertilisers and almost all of our farming is done by hand – without the use of heavy machinery.
We believe farms should be at the heart of our local communities. We want our customers to get to know us and our partner farmers, and we are working to establish a collaborative and transparent way of working to bring ourselves, our customers and our partner farms closer to nature and each other.
