Hands on Earth is a family business, located in Minho - Vale do Rio Guizando, on the slope of São Pedro de Oliveira in Braga, facing south, in an area qualified as a National Agricultural Reserve (RAN) that contains a healthy, fertile and natural soil.
It is a project for outdoor cultivation and preparation of agricultural products, aimed at a public looking for quality and authenticity of products.
We are dedicated to the cultivation of organic aromatic herbs without the use of any chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
We prepare organic aromatic herbs, for infusions, and culinary condiments, with or without salt or fleur de sel.
We dehydrate and prepare 100% natural fruit with hot air at low temperatures, without added sugar, dyes or preservatives, with natural lemon juice as the only component.
We make artisanal jams with selected seasonal fruit, with the particularity of being marketed in small batches to capture the true flavor of the fruit.
We also grow edible flowers and mix organic rice with field products.
