    Hello ,
    We live in an agroecological farm in Carrancas, in the south of Minas Gerais.
    Here live Me Thiago and my parents live in Lavras, a neighboring city and always come here.
    The farm is historic and family friendly. It has been resuming its activities today following ecological and sustainable principles.
    We have a headquarters house that works as a guesthouse sporadically. we work in cultivation and processing of medicinal plants, handicrafts, fishing, eggs production, beer craft and go every week in town to sell the farm products.
    There is an old orchard with many trees of mango, avocado, guava, jaboticaba, pitanga, etc. There are also agroforestry systems in progress to produce wood, fruits and food. We have small creations of chickens, bees and fish. My parents have a space for beer production and food processing.

    The farm also has areas with natural cerrado fields, springs and tributaries of water and native forests. IS
    bathed by the Camargos dam (Rio Grande) .The air is pure, the weather is cool, it's quiet, a great place to watch
    of nature, the sky and the stars. You'll love taking a waterfall shower in summer, or sit close from the wood stove in winter.
