To become a bob-o-link farmer, the producers have to:
– Start planting trees for shade, and all over the farm
– Make barriers, to preserve water
– Start decreasing the use of fertilizers & pesticides
– Install African beds & pre-sorting machines on the farms (with their financing help)
– Selective harvest. Being mountain & small farms, harvests are made by hand
– They help them to change their food habits
– Interest in coffee cupping & recognition
– Have some alternative productions. It is quite common to see lots of animals on the farms, such as cows for milk products & meat, and vegetables production
– This brings birds & bees. For the first, they ask respect, from the second, to get into honey production.
