The origin of the name only comes to us through echoes of ancient voices, spoken in the early 18th century. From these remnants emerges the report of a swampy area, where wild and wild animals ran aground in the mud, and the region later came to be known as Vaca Brava.

It was born in the forest and became sugarcane rapadura, coffee plantation, cisaleira plantation and returned to sugarcane, this time producing cachaça.

Getting to know Vaca Brava is like entering a world of secular things, doings and knowledge. Whether in the big house, whose walls were built more than 140 years ago and which, among other characters, housed the writer José Américo de Almeida; either for its steam mill, imported from France in 1884, built by the same company that installed the Eiffel Tower elevators, or for the stories cried and smiled by the characters who lived and worked on their lands.
