Fazenda Freitas has been producing coffee for the last 32 years under the stewardship of Osmar and more recently his son Gabriel whose passion and dedication is shown in the quality of this coffee. Both father and son have strong stances on social and environmental legislation. This includes equal pay for men and women, strictly no hiring of employees under 16, and providing education and training for the employees families. They have also prohibited hunting, fishing, any type of deforestation, and use of any weapons on the farm.
