New Year’s picnic

The New Year’s picnic has already become a tradition at the Quinta.  It is a fun day at the pond with a buffet lunch, enjoying the winter sunshine.  The day includes a swim, yes that’s right a swim, in the pond which is used to raise funds for the Bombeiros (fire fighters), an excellent charity and a perfect way to spend a great day with family and friends.

A late start to the day sees all the picnic goers congregate at Oak lodge for a coffee after which we all walk to the pond through our forested area where the picnic is set up.  The day is spent chatting, lounging in the yoga deck, throwing balls for the dogs and petting some of the horses that join in on the fun.  Transport is arranged for those who cannot or don’t want to walk.

After a lazy buffet style lunch, those who would like to can join in on the traditional Polar Bear swim, every participant receives a memento of the occasion (t-shirt, cap etc).

Cost: €20
€10 of this goes to the Bombeiros, our incredible firefighters who do so much to keep us safe every year.

Midsummer picnic

A highlight of the summer at The Green Farm is the Midsummer Picnic held on the Summer Solstice 20 June.

Starting in the late evening, the picnic is held at our own Stone Garden. 

Enjoy a buffet-style dinner as the sun sets on the longest day of the year with us, as we light a small bonfire and enjoy a meal with friends whilst reclining on picnic blankets under the emerging stars.
