Fazenda Rainha belongs to the Carvalho Dias’ family since 1890. Gabriel de Carvalho Dias, nephew of the owner is responsible for managing the farm, which is located exactly on the boarder with the State of Minas Gerais, and has the characteristics of the mountainous regions of Mogiana and South Minas. Plantations are handled manually, because the local topography does not allow any type of mechanization.
Social and environmental aspects are considered fundamental by the farm’s management. The farm has a program to plant native species to maintain the ecological balance. Of the 484 hectars, only 190 are used for coffee plantation. Furthermore, the employees live in houses with complete infrastructure; there is a school for their children and a leisure area for the families with a club and an official soccer field. The water used in the farm is treated to avoid polluting its water sources.
The farm is at an altitude between 1100 and 1500 meters with average annual rainfalls between 1800 and 2000 mm, and an average temperature of 19°C – ideal conditions for coffee growing. Fazenda Rainha produces coffees of the Yellow Bourbon variety, famous for its exceptional quality.
