Portuguese youth turn to farm work

Young people are returning to their hometowns in the countryside to farm after failing to find jobs in the city.

    High unemployment is making farm work a better alternative for young people from Portugal. 

    Many people who left their countryside homes for work in the city are now also returning to live with their parents and take up old family traditions of farming.

    Some are also exploring innovative and new possibilities in the farmlands.
