The meeting point is at a farmhouse between João Roupeiro and Maria Vinagre villages. We are greeted by António and Ana – a biological farmer and a singer of traditional Portuguese music. They talk about local farming and about the old songs of work while a comforting breakfast is served. Then, the group goes to the land to help with many diverse agricultural activities: sewing, planting, harvesting, picking the peanuts and sifting them in the wind. While working, everyone is invited to sing as people used to do here. Afterwards, the lunch is prepared jointly, and Ana’s melodic voice fills the house. A meal, made of gifts of the land, always tastes well; whereas, the conversations around the table let the travellers learn more about the land, the animals and the people here. They leave with their bellies and their souls fulfilled.
