Eduardo Campos received the land through heritage from his father’s family. He names the farm “Fazenda Dona Nenem” after his mother. He starts working as a coffee farmer in 1977, being the very first in the region of Patos de Minas to plant coffee, according to own statements. Special attention was given to nature already before the concepts of certification reached Brazil. In practice, preservation goes well beyond the rigid Brazilian environmental laws. Native trees and bushes are replanted and the impact of cattle raising is compensated by water protection alongside the rivers and brooks. The natural, bush like vegetation of the Brazilian Cerrado is by this preserved while on the other hand side modern farming techniques are practiced. Coffee is harvested manually as well as by modern machines that are able to harvest only the ripe cherries. The farm is UTZ certified as well as Rainforest Alliance certified.
