Barra Nossa História
Barra Nossa História

Coopfam was born on the awareness of some producers of the possibility of making things differently and, in doing so, have a better life. It was born from this transforming consciousness that has spread and grew, based on family values and on the principle that what is good for one can be the best for everyone.

From meetings at “Pastoral da Terra” (Earth Pastoral) to an Association sustained by the donation of the work of each one of its members. From the choice to focus on the coffee production to the Fair Trade. From a successful experience with organic agriculture to a Feminine Organic Coffee. From transforming an individual to transforming an entire chain of production and consumption.
