Orange Harvest Experience

eat & drink

Orange Harvest Experience 59.00 / per person

  • 3 hours duration
  • 2+ age
  • Aveiro
  • Countryside


We have been growing juicy oranges for decades. The orange harvest experience starts with a tour through the orange plantation. You will take part in the orange picking from citrus trees of various heights. Once we have enough, we will show you the production process. I’m sure you’ll be hungry by then, so we’ll have lunch at the farmhouse for a gastronomic experience of Portuguese cuisine. The experience ends with a taste of freshly squeezed fruit juices from a variety of citric fruits that are rich with vitamin C and antioxidants. You will also get to take home a bag of oranges which you helped pick out during the tour. Orange plantation is located 2 km from the Farmhouse and is a 2 hectares big property with all kinds of fruit trees. We have about 120 orange trees and 100 olive trees. 


If the experience is during the summer (June to September) we will go to the farmhouse and enjoy the pool. We will visit the farm animals and do a little tour.

    The Farm


    We will show you how to plant, grow and harvest our organic produce. We’re very proud of our ancient traditions in agronomics, so we really appreciate it when guests want to learn our ways and take part in the production process. Our plantation grows oranges, olives, and other fruits and vegetables. We also have a good number of farm animals — goats, ducks, chickens, rabbits and geese. All these are where we get our home cooked meals from wines, juice, meat, and cheese. Give a special thanks to Ana’s culinary skills and an extra hug to show your appreciation, she’ll be super happy. 



    The Lunch


    One of the things we care about the most is that the menu is the reflection of the best of each season. If we respect the seasonality of each product, we will guarantee a richest taste, a best nutritional value and an unique experience… and because we only work with seasonal products the menu changes with the rhythm of each season. And that’s why the menu varies…



    THE MEAL


    Before everything, our bread, olive oil with fleur de sel and sauces

    To start… a delicious Soup with the taste of our garden,

    A Starter where the vegetables are the main characters…

    To main dishes… one vegetarian and other with meat. But in both vegetables has a special spot The meat will be another element in the dish and not the element of the dish

    To be accompanied.. a homemade wine from our harvest.

    And because we couldn’t finish in a different way… the desert and coffee or tea.


    KID’S MENU (UNTIL 10 YEARS OLD) Composed by a soup, a main course with meat, vegetables and a side dish and desert. To drink a mini fresh juice.
