I follow a bunch of channels featuring people establishing a life on the land in Portugal, so I'm going to throw a couple of episodes from each of them them into the hopper. Here are their channel descriptions from their respective YouTube pages.
Luke and Sarah's Off-Grid Life - "Hi, We are Sarah and Luke. We make videos about our experiences living off-grid in Central Portugal as total beginners and aim to reach self-sufficiency in the near future , we upload twice a week every Thursday and Sunday and our topics will cover home cooked recipes , gardening, sustainability, tiny houses, building with natural materials, and much more. We want a simple life and aim to reduce our carbon footprint and regenerate our land. With no previous experience everything we do is a learning process and we hope you will join us on this learning journey and learn with us. When joining our family you are contributing to and supporting our growth. We love putting these videos together and love sharing our experiences and through these videos we hope to inspire others to go after their dreams and help create more awareness to the well-being of our planet. Thanks for reading this and have a great day😃"

Quinta Fonte da Pipa - Portuguese Farm Life - "We are an English family, Alex Molly and Sandra living the Portugal farm life. This year will be our seventh year here so we have a lot to share. We thought it would be a great idea to start a YouTube channel so we can share our lives with you. * Bringing you every aspect of our daily farm lives, including Molly and Alex cooking amazing meals in our old wood fired Portuguese bread oven and sharing our recipes with you. * Follow us as we renovate the building around our old bread oven and other buildings on the farm with natural materials, re-building and planting the vegetable patch after the fire destroyed it all in 2019. Building the new goat barn, our days with the goats, births and milking them. Molly making soaps and many types of cheeses from our own goats milk. Watch what we grow, getting water back on the farm, daily farm life and chores, visiting local sites and showing you the local area. Plus lots more......... and the milking goats!"
Our Portuguese Homestead - "In August of 2018 my partner, my baby and I set out on a great new adventure. We moved out of our city apartment into a 1987 Hymer camper-van. Taking only the essentials, we slowly made our way from the Netherlands down to Portugal. May 2019 we bought a piece of land here that had been abandoned for 30 years. Now we are slowly making it our home, starting with the basics like our new yurt. Welcome!"
The Indie Projects - "Welcome to our channel! We're Theo & Bee, and together with our cat Ginjey Bear we live and travel full-time in our self-converted Sprinter van! Getting out in the van has been such a fantastic way to see the world and we love sharing it with everyone :)" ***Bee and Theo need to update their About page.***
Project Kamp - "We bought a piece of land and are prototyping a more sustainable way of living. We hope. Lets see where this is going :) support.projectkamp.com"
The Indigo Escape - "We are Omar and Andrea, a South African/Venezuelan couple currently based in Portugal. We have run a small tour company in the UK since 2011 in the south of England, which is at the moment on a hiatus due to the pandemic. After realizing we wanted to live in the countryside and as the UK has become too expensive for us, we decided to try Portugal! Therefore, we bought a 3.400m2 farm and started to renovate it! :) We don’t have any other source of income but wanted to show how it is possible to relocate, get your dream home, and with a lot of work, get to have the lifestyle you want in the countryside. Come and join us every week on our journey to renovating a ruin in Portugal!"
OKportugal - "Hi, I am Ken and I created OKportugal to document my midlife crisis and escape from the rat race! I am originally from Cape Town, South Africa but have lived in the UK for the last 17 years with my partner Gina, our two cats and a big hairy dog. For many years we talked about leaving South East England and moving somewhere warm and sunny. We finally got our act together in late 2019 to escape before the dreaded Brexit. We sold our house, bought a campervan and drove all of our belongings to Portugal, a country we had not even visited before! We had no idea where we were going or if we would succeed but we managed to buy an amazing farm in December 2019 where we now live. You can watch our journey from leaving England and buying this farm in the playlist 'SEASON 1 - Buying a Farm in Portugal' 'SEASON 2 - Portugal Farm Life' follows us around as we learn more about our new country Portugal, its people and life on a farm."
