History of the farm:
Fazenda Rainha has an area of 280 hectares occupied by coffee of which 200 hectares are the yellow Bourbón variety. The geographical conditions and the excellent climate make the place unique for producing specialty coffees. All the workers reside on the farm itself, thus eliminating temporary hiring, and are duly aided by health plans and unlimited hospital care. Recently, a second unit of the Pedro Roza IT School and a chapel designed by Oscar Niemayer were built by the workers. The environmental policy of Fazenda Rainha is based on reconciling production and conservation of the environment.
