Surrounded by forests and two rivers, the Bale Mountain Farm is located in the area of Western Arsi, Nensebo Woreda, near the river of the same name and the Bale National Park. The soils here are rich in nutrients due to the decomposition products of foliage and plants. Local varieties of coffee grow on the farm — they are well adapted to the local environmental conditions. The Bale Mountain farm is relatively young — it was founded in 2011, belongs to the company Kerchanshe (the company has been exporting African Arabica for more than 15 years).
The Bale Mountains belong to the Bale-Arsi massif, which forms the western part of the southeastern highlands of Ethiopia, whose height reaches 3000 meters above sea level. The farm is located a little lower — at an altitude of 1800-2100 meters, although its territory can be traced to the level of 2400 meters, but coffee is no longer grown here, since it is a state-protected area (a project for the conservation of mountain forests).
Bale coffee is considered eco-friendly: it is produced here using methods that do not harm the environment (economical and careful use of resources /sustainability coffee production). A large number of shade trees grow on the farm.
Local farmers receive various support from the Kerchanshe company: free distribution of coffee seedlings (grown in a coffee nursery on the Bale farm), construction of roads and schools, financial support in the off-season.
