We are able to accept visitors outside of our scheduled programs
ONCE YOU REGISTER FOR A PROGRAM, WE WILL SEND YOU ALL THE DETAILS ON HOW TO GET TO OUR FARM LOCATION
The farm is around 1 hour 30 minutes drive from Lisbon
From Lisbon airport the train is 2 hours and costs 12€ - you take the metro to Orient Station and then the train to Tomar leaves every 1 or 2 hours (depending on the time of day). You can check train times here
From Porto it is around 2.5 hours and costs 25€
You can then easily get a taxi to the farm from Tomar: it costs 15 euros and takes 15-20 minutes. Train station pick ups are available on some farm experiences
By car, the journey from Lisbon to Tomar takes 1.5 hours and 2.5 hours from Porto
We can work to accommodate multiple levels of on-site accessibility if you need wheelchair access
Please contact us about any further accessibility needs - we are happy to help.
Can I drop in anytime?
We are happy to see you during any of our scheduled experiences. As a working farm, we don’t have drop-in visits available as we are not always able to have team members available to show visitors around the farm, please book if you would like to see the farm.
Do you sell products from your farm?
Not yet! But we are hoping to in the near future, so keep an eye out. We have been experimenting with many of our own DIY and farm products, and would love to share them with you on one of our farm experiences.
Can I stay on the farm?
Yes for any of our 3 or 5 night programs you can stay! Please register for one of any of these experiences for the full CO Project adventures, and check out the beautiful facilities we have been busy designing and restoring (link to sign up).
Do you offer custom and private programs?
Yes we do in some cases. Please review the facilities and reach out for a private program information pack here.
Is this part of the UnSchool?
The CO Project Farm is an emerging creative and cultural space for educative experiences. Set in the countryside and focusing on the best sustainable design and permaculture/organic farming techniques, we are building a unique new Brain Spa concept. The project is connected to the UnSchool (also founded by Leyla Acaroglu) via the UnSchool Association, a Portuguese not-for-profit set up to advanced leadership in sustainability and the circular economy. We run community experiences, develop initiatives, partner with other organisations interested in activating change and accept donations to continue our not for profit work through the Association.
Will I meet Leyla?
Maybe, but most likely not. Leyla is often travelling with her work, however, she loves to be on the farm and show off all the hard work everyone has put into it (as well as hangout with the donkeys, and ducks, and chickens, and goats and...). Leyla does lead some of the programs, and that will be mentioned in the listing or you may get a surprise! All our programs are facilitated by a hand selected an trained team of incredible humans.
