About:

The Thirikwa Cooperative Society is located on the Upper Medium zone of Mt. Kenya. Its membership  consists of 1553 smallholder farmers, 674 of whhich are women. Together they produce about 250 tonnes of cherry per season in red, volcanic soil.  The Gakuyu-ini washing station collects coffee cherry from nearby farmers who are unable to walk by foot to the nearest collection centre in Nairobi City, which is  130km away. The mill uses clean river water for  its processing and recirculates the water before  disposing of it in seepage pits.
