ABOUT THE PRODUCER
In 2000, the 262 hectare farm was incorporated into Shiwanda Farms Ltd, under the ownership of Cornel and Georgia Apson. They have invested heavily to revive the farm to focus on high quality production. Coffee from the farm is fully washed at the central washing station using a McKinnon three disc pulper. Parchment is then dried on raised drying tables before being packed into sisal bags and kept in the farms warehouse. The farm contributes to the local community by employing more than 300 local men and women in a season. The farm has a strong principle of nature conservation; keeping the natural forest covering about 20% of the farm.
The GPS co-ordinates of the farm are: 9°8′43″ S 32°55′21″ E
