The year was 1953 and the young Manuel Jorge Gomes was finishing elementary school when he inherited the first lands that are today part of the several properties of Hortícolas Casal D'Avó. In the beginning he produced wheat, barley and corn, later moving on to turnips, which had great demand in the Ribeira market in Lisbon. Nowadays Hortícolas Casal D'Avó produces 10 varieties of high quality fruits and vegetables to satisfy the needs of its various clients. Located in Ribatejo, more precisely in the municipality of Torres Novas, Hortícolas Casal D'Avó is today being managed by Mr. Manuel Jorge Gomes and his 5 children who accompanied their parents in the production and marketing of fruits and vegetables. In 2010 the sales volume exceeded 1 million Euros, which in turn has been increasing until today, approaching the 3 million in 2021. All thanks to the commitment and dedication of the Gomes family and its employees, who already cultivate more than 450 Hectares and continue to expand with future acquisitions. To ensure that the products reach the final customer with the highest level of quality and freshness, Hortícolas Casal D'Avó also has a range of agricultural equipment ranging from tractors to machines for washing and grading the products. It has a cold storage capacity of 250 m2 and a new warehouse of 1800 m2 located in Golegã, which is close to its production area.
