ABOUT THE FARM

Gahahe was built in 1989 in the Kayanza commune and province. The name ‘Gahahe’ comes from the Igihahe trees that were once found in this region. Due to the number of these trees in this region, the Kirundi phrase kubavomere batumisha was used to describe the land, which means ‘always covered in green’. This washing station collects cherries from over 1,250 local coffee farmers spread over the 16 neighboring colonies.
