In 2012, believing in a collective way of organizing production, the families in the agrarian reform settlement in the south of Minas Gerais created a cooperative called “Cooperative of the southern peasants in Minas Gerais” (Camponesa). The cooperative’s main objective is to provide better living conditions and put social inclusion into practice for the associated farmers through the coffee production, that is its main activity. It is located in a region that is responsible for more than 50% of all coffee produced in Brazil. The coffee beam has the conditions to reach a better grading because of the favorable weather, with the average temperature during the year between 22°C and 24°C, as well as the altitude, where the elevation is between 850m and 1,250m. Currently there are 150 families associated to the “Camponesa” cooperative that work with the cultivation of the Guaií Coffee, which is produced in both conventional and organic farming. The total area of 550 hectares is divided in 3 settlements and 10 encampments. The coffee is 100% arabic (“coffea arabica”) and can be acquired in 60 kg sacks of green bean and packs of 250g and 500g of roasted or ground and roasted beans. In the future, the cooperative intends to transform all its production to organic coffee bean.

Today, the peasants produce a great variety of seeds species, including vegetables, ornamental plants, forages and grains. In 2016, BIONATUR acquired the brand of tomato seeds Bio Feliciana.
