The history of the farm dates back to the 1940’s when the family of Mr EW D’Ollier owned the farm. The D’Olliers used to process and mill their coffee as well as for the neighbouring small scale farmers. In 1976, they sold the farm to Gatatha Farmers Co Ltd who ran the farm until September 2011 when they sold it to the current owners of the farm.
The coffee is produced from handpicked cherries, harvested at their peak ripeness between October and December. The cherries are dried on raised African beds. The slow meticulous drying of the cherries can take up to seven weeks.
The management and current owners take a deep interest in the welfare of their employees. The farm has sponsored two high school students from poorer backgrounds to gain their school qualifications. It is hoped this programme will be expanded in the future.
