Sakit's New Trees Growing Well

Posted on February 15, 2014 by Cocoa Care | 0 comments

As a part of your sponsorship program, Farmers Sakti and Salama Kani both recieve in-farm support from one of our Cocoa Carer's. This means that these farmers have access to expert advise and guidance when they need it. As a part of this, routine visits are made to Sakti and Salama's farms to see how they are progressing. 

During a recent visit to Sakti's farm by Cocoa Carer Darwis we were able to capture these pictures showing your trees are looking extremely healthy and are growing very well. 

The protective shading over the trees will be removed in the coming month and then the trees will go through several growth spurts. Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the growth.

Cocoa Trees Planted

Posted on January 03, 2014 by Cocoa Care | 0 comments

December 19, 2013 was a very happy day for Farmers Sakti and Salama as Cocoa Carer Darwis presented them with their new superior quality top grafted cocoa tree seedlings as a part of your program. Their smiles says it all!

Both Sakti and Salama had lost trees over the years due to age and pest & diseases so these new trees will significantly help these farming families increase their farm productivity and help them onto a path for a brighter future.

Your trees will begin to fruit in about 18 months and from 2016 onwards your trees should be producing up to 2kg of cocoa each year or enough to make about 2.3 kg of 70% dark chocolate, about three to four times the current average production of a “typical” cocoa tree in the world today.

We will continue to monitor the progress of your trees so please check back soon.

Meet The Recipients Of Your Support

Posted on December 12, 2013 by Cocoa Care | 0 comments

We are pleased to introduce you to the 2 cocoa farming families who will receive 300 superior quality, top grafting seedlings along with 12 months supply of fertilizer mix thanks to your sponsorship. 

 

The recipients of your trees are: 

  • Farmer Sakti and his wife Asijah, pictured left, will receive 150 trees. 
  • Salama and his wife Rustini, picture right, will receive 150 trees. 

An increasingly big problem for cocoa farmers in Sulawesi is old, non productive or dead cocoa trees. By helping cocoa farmers like Sakti and Salama to replace some of those trees they have lost will help them to increase their farm incomes and give their children a much brighter future. 

Both Sakti and Salama already know how to properly manage their farms in a sustainable way as he both have received essential training in good agricultural practices as a part of another sponsorship program. 

We look forward to updating you on the progress of your trees over the next 12 months and hope you check back here again soon. 

 

Up Next....Tree planting!
