It started in 1998 in North Thyolo district. There are 164 tea growers (75 are women), growing on five blocks of land. We grow some tea on customary land and some on public land. We sell our tea leaves to Satemwa tea factory for processing.
We have Fairtrade certification since 2007, and Utz and Rainforest Alliance certification.
We used our Fairtrade premium to build two pit latrines at the primary school.
