A Very Warm

Welcome to Roots Reconnected

Hi, my name is Moreno, but you might know me better as "The Dutch Farmer".

In 2013, after I quit my 9-5 job, I flew to the other side of the world and quite literally stumbled into farming.

Since then I've worked on 10+ diverse farms on 3 continents. Ran a small-scale no dig market garden in France for 5 years (on rented land).

In early 2022, together with my wife and our 2 daughters, we bought a 3-hectare property in Portugal where we're building a Permaculture-inspired homestead entirely from scratch.

Here we’re creating an ecologically abundant ecosystem while creating an economically viable homestead that allows us to live a simpler lifestyle on our own terms.

Along the way we document and share our experiences and hope that you'll find inspiration, motivation, and practical know-how on your own transformative journey to creating a life worth living.

Thank you for stopping by. It means the world to us.

We invite you to take a look around our blog to see if what we have is for you, explore our available resources, or reach out and say "Hi!" anytime.

No matter where you are in your journey, if you care about making a change… you're not alone.

Welcome to our world.
