Can I drop in anytime?
We are happy to see you during any of our scheduled experiences or for a guesthouse experience via our casual bookings here. 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?

Do you offer custom and private programs?
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.
