Zeleke Shore uses agroforestry techniques to produce both food and cash crops. Agroforestry also creates the ideal shaded microclimate for his coffee.
He’s invested in producing high quality coffees and exporting them through the Lalisaa project.As part of the Lalisaa project, Zeleke receives comprehensive agronomy support from Sucafina Ethiopia. Lalisaa farmers attend farmer trainings to learn new techniques in cultivation, harvest and processing. Designed to support farmers by shortening the supply chain and increasing their returns, the Lalisaa project works with dedicated smallholder producers to expand market access, improve quality and increase yields.
Coffee is intercropped with food and other cash crops using agroforestry techniques. Zeleke’s farm is organic by default. He upkeeps his farm with periodic mulching, composting and pruning to boost yields.
