We met Pedro who owns Fazenda Pinhal back in March. Learning about everything the farm has accomplished and plans for the future really got us excited to start working with them. Beginning our relationship with them with a beautiful naturally processed lot with notes of Dark Chocolate, Peanut butter & Mellow dried Stone fruits.

Additional Information

Fazenda Pinhal is a 914-hectare farm situated close to San Antonio De Ampoaro in Sul De Minas, Brazil. The farm belongs to the Gabarra Teixeria Family who acquired the farm in 1994. The farm is only planted with 296 ha coffee (33% of the farm) with the rest of the land been left with natural reserve, Eucalyptus Forest and pasture land for cows.

In 2019 the farm won the award for Brazil’s most sustainable coffee farm and in 2019 they installed solar panels which now supplies 100% of their energy usage.

On the farm, they have also started a bird sanctuary to help rehabilitate and care for injured birds and have coordinated research programs with the local universities and student thesis.

The welfare of their employees is very important to them with providing dental care plans in 2018 and now researching with a local university on ways to make the working environment more sustainable for their employees and preventing occupational injuries.
