The Karatina factory is located in the Nyeri District in the Southern part of the famous Mt. Kenya and part of the Barichu Cooperative Society with about 1,450 small scale farmers. The cherries are fully washed with fresh river water from Ragati river and sundried on raised beds.
Barichu Farmers’ Cooperative Society has 5,800 registered members and produces 3 million – 5 million kilos of coffee.
Barichu works to give the farmers credit facilities for school fees, farm input and other emergencies. Their goal is to help educate farmers on crop husbandry and other agricultural practices important to the coffee.
They have a demonstration plot financed by Tropical Management and house a nursery which serves the whole society providing matured seedlings to help reduce drops in production/income for farmers.
