In 1957, Dorienne Rowan-Campbell's father, Horace Rowan-Campbell, bought the land from the Benns, family friends whose ties and friendship spans across four generations. The Benns were coffee growers, but the highest part of the land on the southside of the farm had not been used for many years.
Dorienne's father replanted this area and began coffee farming anew. Land was laid out by the Coffee guru of those days, Mr Moss. The family moved to Canada and the farm was left to nature for many years. Dorienne began resuscitation of the farm in 1992 using organic standards and principles.
The farm is family owned and operated. The management and marketing team is made up of Dorienne, her son Rowan Wilson-Smillie and her husband Tony Fisher. On a day to day basis, the farm management and inspections rest with Dorienne andTony, and they work with their farm team to pick, pulp, dry, store size, grade, roast and package the coffee. Dorienne and Tony are also responsible for quality control to size, grade, roast and package the coffee.
