The foundation of Santo Antonio de Leite dates from 1750, when a priest Bananal built the farm and began dairy farming in the region.
Subsequently erected a chapel for Santo Antonio, which became the town's patron.
Later, a large farmer is proposed to erect a church to the Holy of his devotion, San Antonio, but on their journey to raise funds for the construction died. The villagers came together to continue the dream of the farmer and before long was erected the first chapel of St. Anthony and the Holy would become the patron of milk. And so came the Santo Antonio do Leite name.
At the end of the 70s came to this small town the first artisans. It was the time of Alternative Culture.
Brazil, like other countries in the world, has had several outbreaks of this movement, receiving people who came together to form this new way of life.
Santo Antonio do Leite by chance received mostly artisans of metal, which built over the years, its national and international reference in the production of silver jewelry and gemstones in Brazil and the world.
Milk Santo Antonio is now a rural town, friendly and quiet. Flocking multicultural legacy features of this fusion of local culture, with several countries and states of Brazil and the world, brought about by these artisans who still continue to arrive.
