In the initial structure, there was only a building where employees stayed. Today, the farm has more than 60 ha for office I and 33 ha for office II, having an administration office, sheds, cotton gin, warehouse etc. 

Social projects

Annually during the SIPATR week, employees from the Farm collect non-perishable foods, set food baskets and distribute these baskets to the Pastoral da Criança of the city of Sapezal and to the needy families in the same city. In 2017 the Digital Inclusion Space of Planorte Farm (MT) was inaugurated, democratizing access to technology and distance education, bringing employees into the digital age.
