The farms in this area have red volcanic soil, and the producers also grow tea, bananas, and corn on their plots, under shade provided by macadamia, eucalyptus, and gravellea trees.
Coffee is here picked ripe and brought to the factory for depulping, washing, and soaking; farmers receive training every year from the factory manager, and "field days" hosted by the Ministry of Agriculture and agrochemical companies. The factory's water comes from the Rutui river, and there are four soaking pits for recycling and purifying the water.
