We want to plant Almond and Olive Trees on land abandoned for 20 years, increase the production and add beekeeping for pollination. Meanwhile finish a Master Degree in History and Cultural Heritage from of the local village and give them a legacy.

Mós Project - Vila Nova de Foz Côa, presents two distinct lines of application, agriculture and culture, with only one purpose for entrepreneurs, to live in the interior of Portugal, the great Douro valley.

In this little village named Mós, located in Vila Nova de Foz Côa region, where there are wineards for the famous Port wine, we have also very good olive and almond trees. Inherited some lands, abandoned for around 20 years, we decided to give birth to a new project by living there and finished a master degree about History and Cultural Heritage. 

Agriculture is a way of living and finishing studies about the cultural sociality of the little village Mós is a desire and also a legacy. Anyway, beginning with this one and then the others around. If you want to know more, we can talk about that.

Many friends are surprised with us for leaving the city and move to a almost deserted area. But we like this way of peace.

We believed it is possible!

About the author

Mariluz Passeira - Bachelor in Art History, Master in History and Heritage. At the age of 40 I decided to do what I always promised myself, to take a higher education course. Always working full time, I made the secondary school again only in two years in Arts at the Escola Artisitica Soares dos Reis / Porto, aftwards envolved the University of Porto through the national exam as any student , there i have finished the Degree in Art History in the expected 3 years. I also attended the 1st year of Master's Degree in History and Heritage - Local and Regional Registries, but I stopped, l moved and worked in Lisbon until today (April 2019). About a year and a half ago I signed up as an individual entrepreneur and started selling products at the regions of Lisbon and Porto and even deliveries made into portuguese islands of Madeira! Beginning of May I move to Mós - Vila Nova de Foz Côa.

Jorge Passeira - He works as a security in places that gave him knowledge in other areas. But that was not at all a life goal. Knowing almost all species of trees and plants, owner of the abandoned lands for over 20 years at the village of Mós, were the basis for developing entrepreneurial ideas. He sought employment at the site for about a year to be closer to the project and moved in early March 2019,

The third person is a young family member who has been following our path, supporting us as a consultant and in the future who will maintain and continue the agricultural project.

Short courses in: agriculture and beekeeping. Qualifications in Management and Marketing.

Budget and due dates

The total cost of the project, placed about 2 years ago in the PDR2020 (Rural Development Program), is 105,537.48 € but it includes a series of parameters that we have already contoured. ... But we would like to reach € 35,000 !!!

The schedule:

  • May 2019 - moving into the village and placement of the 1st hive
  • June to September 2019 - deforestation, land openings and land preparation 
  • October and November 2019 - Plantation of Almond and Olive Trees and construction of the warehouse
  • January and February 2020 - placement of more hives - remaining will be through unfolding and use of the swarms

The Master Degree will start in September, a review of what has already been done and preparation will begin in May 2019.

The minimum value corresponds to only a small part of the total project and the clearing of the flatter: firstly because the raising of the total value will not be easy for us to see, secondly because we have already acquired some equipment and thirdly because with this part we know that we will be able to start with part of the project.

The viability of this project was demonstrated by a study carried out. We will be available to show invoices of works and equipment obtained with the help that we obtain here.
