In this blog we will look into how you can find out what type of soil you have and what pH and nutritional value your garden soil has. We will do this by analysing the soil.

For a long time I had a passion for Portugal and for living in the countryside. But I was manager at the Dutch Refugee Council in Holland, which I also did with commitment and involvement. However, in 2010 I moved from Wageningen in the Netherlands to our farm Terra do milho in the Algarve. My desire was, and is, to build up a sustainable life, whilst my partner Tom still stayed part-time in Holland running his comedy-business. Lots of things were developed since then and many of those things I had to learn from scratch. Changing 4 ha overgrown wild land into a fruit orchard and vegetable garden was a challenge. After the land was accessabel we bought our first goats Bianca and Kimberly. Soon after that chickens were added. Meanwhile we were building our own house and all the utilities needed, like fresh drinking water. Now we are coming into a new phase: sharing our experience and knowledge, and selling our products and skills. On our website and our social media you can read and see a lot of us. Hopefully we will meet you there.
