His is a family tradition that all started with his grandfather. Ademir and his family owned another farm in Mogiana for many years but moved to Ibiraci because of the farm’s excellent terroir for specialty coffee production.
MARCIO MARTINS FERREIRA – Monte Alto & Mimoso Farm
Marcio has two farms in Pedregulho, Mogiana.
He started his first coffee crop at his father’s estate in 1983, which was dominated by dairy farming.
