Land (Terra) is our vital natural resource

Terraprima's mission is to contribute to soil protection, by paying farmers the environmental service they provide.

Terraprima is a business group formed by Terraprima-Serviços Ambientais (environment) and Terraprima-Sociedade Agrícola (agriculture).

Terraprima Ambiental is a spin-off of the IST technical university dedicated to the design and implementation of integrated systems for compensating for the environmental impact of human activity. Its work includes managing remuneration projects for environmental services provided through good soil management practices, including Sown Biodiverse Pastures.

Terraprima Agrícola runs the agroforestry management of Quinta da França, a farm which is involved in demonstration projects related to the environment and sustainability.
