Story

Agriculture Center of Excellence


The COE will evolve over a period of time, with the first few years beginning as a centralized coffee processing center collecting and receiving harvested coffee, processing it and selling it from the center. The center will be scaled as we evolve other programs and agricultural offerings.​ This center will not only support the regions agriculture development needs but also provide many job opportunities to further create an economic boon. 

The center of excellence will provide the following:

  • Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) Education
  • Coffee Milling Center
  • Coffee Washing/Drying
  • Natural Processing
  • Certified Seedling Nursery
  • Fertilizer Production Center
  • Trade Center
  • University Learning Center

In order to grow our communities and support our diverse agricultural asset offerings, the COE will be scaled to offer additional: ​

  • Community Farming Education
  • Livestock Purchase and Veterinarian Center
  • Livestock Management Education and Resource Center
  • Other (local and introduced) agriculture seed purchase center
  • Soil Improvement & Fertilizer Purchase Center
  • Oxen and Other Equipment Rental
  • Agricultural Equipment & Supplies
