The farm is located on the ridge of Mantiqueira Mountain in the city of Carmo de Minas. Acquired by the Sertao Group in 1979, new crops were planted along with concrete terraces, washer, dryer for processing.

Residing in the Santa Inês Farm are 35 registered employees, and a total of 80 people. Housing and infrastructure is established by the farm such as water, electricity, and sewage system. All families are provided for with basic needs- including education, health medication, and food.

Concern for the Environment:
The Sertao Group makes it a priority to preserve a large amount of native forest, streams, and springs in order to maintain the thriving environment.

Harvesting and processing of coffee:
Harvesting is always done manually so as to preserve the coffee quality. They are brought to Sertao Farm to be washed, peeled then scattered to dry. Afterwards, they rest in bins, and returned to drier where 10.5% moisture bins go outright for 30 days to rest and processed. They are deposited in the Cooperative which will be the definitive classification standard.
