Starting a Coffee Plantation

We have just finished planting around 2,000 arabica coffee trees which we purchased last June. Since we all do things by ourselves privately then we take also the responsibility of seeking advice from friends having experience in coffee farming.

We are new in this field so we are eager to send our farm assistants to attend seminars whenever opportunities opens for it like this coffee forum held in Sagada recently.

As we do not have much knowledge about coffee growing we appreciate that we were invited to visit the demo farm. It will be our lady farm assistants who we will be incharge in this coffee project.

They returned to the farm very much inspired by what they have seen in Sagada so now – – – it will be work and more work till we reach the finish line.

    1. The coffee seedlings were purchased from The Coffee organization Of la Trinidad which is headed by Mr. Arthur Shontogan. Some seedlings too were from the private nursery of Efleda Blanco from Irisan
