Barra Nossa História
Barra Nossa História

Coopfam was born from the awareness of some producers about the possibility of doing things differently and, thus, having a better life. It was born from this transformative awareness that was being shared and grew based on family values ​​and the principle that to be good for one, it has to be good for all.

From meetings at Pastoral da Terra to an Association supported by the donation of work from each of the members, from choosing to focus on coffee production to Fairtrade, from a successful experience with organic farming to a female organic coffee, from the transformation of the individual to the transformation of an entire production and consumption chain.
