The Team

It takes the effort and collaboration of many enthusiastic people, animals and nature to make a project like this a success. To make mistakes and to learn from them, to re-educate ourselves and discover new possibilities. To regain the priceless knowledge from old forgotten ways and to integrate the possibilities of modern technology. And then the most important part is to share this knowledge. To be connected with local communities and world wide through this amazing internet.

The team at A Quinta represents a unique combination of professional experience, passion for nature and animals as well as a deep understanding and appreciation for the connection between nature and human. This combination ensures the success of this widely and profound regeneration project. 
In addition to our human team members, the animals are an integral part of the farm team where many bring a unique personality and energy to the project. Combined, this gives A Quinta a unique experience that has a lasting effect on people’s lives.
