FAZENDA BELA VISTA
Meet Carlos Felix
Carlos Felix aims to show that we can align food production with the preservation of our ecosystems! After all, food production relies on having a healthy environment.
Fazenda Santa Fé was one of the first-ever farmers to partner with the Black Jaguar Foundation. Taking a leap of faith because they felt passionate about restoring nature and committing to our huge reforestation mission.
About the partnership
Carlos Felix and his wife Regina are the owners of the Belavista farm, located along the Araguaia River, in Caseara – Tocantins. The farm has a total of 1500 hectares currently being used for agricultural purposes.
When our team visited the Belavista farm in 2021 for the first time, we knew that this would be a perfect match. At the Black Jaguar Foundation, we believe that connecting with where our food comes from is the first step in transforming food systems.
In the vídeo testimonial above, Carlos Félix talks about his experiences with the Black Jaguar Foundation and invites all rural landowners in the region to become a part of our Project!
Fazenda Santa Fé is the location where the initial planting of our first million native trees took place in October 2020. In total, we’re planting 80,000 trees here this planting season, from October 2020 – March 2021. See the map location of our restoration site below…
