A list of places to buy trees, seeds and general shops for your homestead for people living in the Fundao area.
Organic Seeds Portugal
Local to us in Idanha-a-Nova is an organic seed company called Sementes Vivas, which sells organic seeds for crops, vegetables, herbs and flowers. You can find a selection of their seeds in most agriculture stores and order all types online. I like to buy from them since the seeds are produced locally, meaning there is less distance travelled, and the plants are acclimatised to our area.
Organic Trees and plants in Portugal
There are no large certified tree sellers in the area. However there are a few of us selling a small selection of trees
