who we are
Countrymen. Men of challenges. Men of work. Men of respect.
We are rural producers of essential oils and cattle breeders. We are a family that aims at taking accurate and responsible care of the land so that it may produce its best. We also aim at opening new paths and raising new challenges. We are rural producers with entrepreneurial vision and technical ability regarding the field.
Whatever is done is to be very well done.
Creativity. Research. Control. Professionalism.
We seek the improvement of our activities, the continued qualification of our personnel, and the excellence of our products.
It all started with our Patriarch, Celso Garcia Cid, a man of keen vision and no fear of challenges. In mid 1960’s, he decided to travel to India in order to find solutions to ameliorate the genetics of the Zebu cattle in Brazil. He made friends and faithful partners there and, after strenuous efforts, he succeeded in bringing that which was the best cattle in India for Brazil. This made such a positive impact on the Brazilian herd that the consequences are fruitful to this day.
Jacatiá Farm has continued this legacy and is in its third generation, breeding cattle of genetic amelioration with focus on the production field.
In 2012, a new challenge arose, namely, the production of essential oils from aromatic plants. We have invested time, resources, and studies on the development of an initial project of citronella and lemongrass seedling plantation in an irrigated area of the farm. A distillery facility was carefully built and prepared to bear a high-volume production.
We have now started to reap the fruit of hard work and dedication with a production of essential oils of high quality citronella and lemongrass, having a clientele from several sectors of the Brazilian industry, such as manufacturers of cleaning products, cosmetics, veterinary products, etc.
Besides, we have reached the final stage of studies concerning the plantation of palma rosa and melaleuca (Australian tea tree), in search of amplifying the scope of products to be offered to our clients.

Our essential oils and hydrosol are extracted by means of the steam trawling method and are 100% natural, that is, with no additives. Chromatographic analyses are carried out at Londrina State University (UEL)
Hydrosol, also known as floral water, contains, in each and everyone of its drops, all the essence of the plant, as a hologram. It is considered to be the homeopathy of aromatherapy.
Through the distillation process, highly concentrated oil is extracted from the plant. It contains the aroma and the therapeutic properties that may have hundreds of chemical components which cause several benefits to human health.
