Companhia das Lezírias, SA

Com Companhia das Lezírias has over 175 years of history and is the largest agro-forestry production in the country. It covers around 18,000 hectares of marsh and heath and is located in the municipality of Benavente, around 40 km from Lisbon. The crops are permanent ones, such as vines (130 hectares), olive groves (70 hectares) and rice (1400 hectares), with strong traditions in the region, and forage for their own use and for sale. We strongly invest in livestock, based on a herd of almost 4,000 cattle for the meat trade. The Stud Farm has tradition, with around 130 of the Lusitano Thoroughbred breed. Companhia das Lezírias has an extremely important forest heritage, covering around eight thousand five hundred hectares, over six thousands of which are cork oak forests, the remainder being covered with forest stands of maritime pine, stone pine and eucalyptus. The unparalleled biodiversity of its territory is perfect for Nature Tourism activities, including Equestrian Tourism. In the southern moorland, more precisely in Ponta da Erva, where the rivers Sorraia and Tagus converge, there is the Bird Visiting and Observation Space, an innovative project which enables visual contact with hundreds of species of birds that can be found there throughout the year, some of which are rare.
