It was 32 years ago which began what is now considered a case of success and entrepreneurship in the Algarve. Fatima Galego began confectioner activity in her mothers wood oven and with the rapid success of her business, adapted some small facilities in a nook of her fathers cork factory.
With the passage of time and success in sweets, was purchasing some adjacent lands, taking advantage of her father’s old cork factory and of her grandfather’s old house, thus forming Quinta dos Tesouros, which currently develops three business, always with the goal of providing the highest quality, because, it is the quality that makes the difference:
- Typical Confectionery Manufacturing for distribution in pastry shops, restaurants, gourmet shops and gourmet grocery stores;
- Carob, Pennyroyal, Lúcia Lime and others manufacturing Liqueurs;
- Banquet in room for up to 280 people and eventually for a Rural Housing Tourism
With capability of performing all type of events, the farm, based in Sítio dos Tesouros (São Brás de Alportel) also has a tea room, which serves only tea made from wild flowers, according to teachings and family traditions.
At the factory are produced sweet made with genuine regional and traditional products such as almond, fig, honey, carob, date and corn planted in the farm. Fátima Galego is proud to produce sweets ordered to the highest government events. Place of passage of various birds, the farm receives tourist routes for observation of the various species as well as groups of tourists that daily visit an ancient olive tree with 2000 years old and a menhir.
Fatima takes these synergies with the arrival of tourists to her farm to make a small story of the region, showing some aromatic and medicinal herbs, and by the time, explains the importance and the impact of carob in the region, making it an area especially good with medicinal air for people with respiratory problems.
