The Organic Tea Farm

My father and I started a little project in 2020. We decided to make our own organic fertilizer at home. This would be applied to our tea fields. Though it takes time, it more cost-effective, environmentally safe and more productive. Production increased by over 60% in the first year and by 80% in the next.

The use of natural mulch also contributed to:

Fertilization and aeration of the soil
Increased production of very soft tea buds
Storage of water with reduced soil erosion
Reduced soil acidity
Less fertilizer loss and wastage
