Kenya season is here, and we're starting off with an incredible offering from the Barichu Cooperative. We get bergamot, plum, and fresh strawberry all-around.
Gaturiri is a Kikuyu word for “the shrubs”. It is a known place where people visit to collect herbs for medicines for humans and livestock.

Gaturiri serves about 1,500 small scale producers and produces approximately 600 tons of cherry. Fresh river water from the Kirigu River is used during processing.
