The Cooperativa dos Agricultores Familiares de Poço Fundo e Região LTDA (COOPFAM) is an association of small-scale farmers located in the state of Minas Gerais in south-eastern Brazil. Their roots date back to the 1980s when the catholic organization "Pastoral Do Tierra'' began organizing small farmers in the town of Poço Fundo under the philosophy of land stewardship and sustainable agriculture. The organization was formally established in 1991 when seventy-six families from the Pastoral Do Tierra united to form the Association of Small Producers From Poço Fundo. Since then, their goal has been to improve the living standard of farmers by increasing productivity through sustainable family-oriented agriculture.
