Exotic fruit bounty
quinta minuvida orchard lodge celebrates our orchards, the essence of our thoughtful Azorean accommodation and experience offerings. We bought a property with mature fruit trees, but they were mostly unkept. One of many tasks over the past year has been learning about, caring for and nurturing our orchards, without the use of chemicals or harsh fertilizers.
It has taken some blood, sweat and tears (and a good set of pruning shears!) and presto – our orchards are producing! We transplanted several banana trees and João has learned some secrets about these incredible plants. Here, he shares a little about the lifecycle of the banana. If you're lucky you'll get to enjoy our homemade banana liqueur from this batch!
Check out what else is growing in our orchards! Can you guess what these are? We'll be incorporating this all into our food at the orchard lodge, as well as experiences in making jams, liqueurs and cooking classes.
We'll launch our booking platform in just a few weeks, where you will be able to make your reservation to stay and Feel the Azores with us! Make sure you're on our newsletter to get our special Grand Opening promotions!
