Agricultural and Forestry Production

Terraprima Agrícola came along in 1994, and has focused its activity on the Quinta da França estate, a property of 500 hectares located in Covilhã.

The area of the Quinta da França estate is spread over forest, farmland and pastures. It is flanked by the river Zêzere and the Ribeira de Caria stream. This estate is composed of diverse and attractive landscape, suitable for multiple services.

Livestock production is of particular importance, with extensive cattle and semi-extensive sheep systems. As a complement to this, agricultural land is dominated by cornfields and pasture.

In the wooded areas oak (Pyrenean oak) dominates, with small clumps of hardwoods and softwoods. Patches of maritime pine and riparian corridors complete the landscape mosaic.
