The Kirimiri Farmers’ Cooperative Society (FCS) and its wet mill, the Kirimiri Factory, are located on the southern slopes of Mount Kenya, in a small area called Kanja in Embu County. Tea and coffee are the main cash crops here; they both thrive in the region’s deep red volcanic soils at 1,700-1,800masl and receive 1,200-1,400mm of rainfall each year. The main crop, which receives rain in the longer season from March to June, is ready for harvest between October and February. The factory also enjoys a late crop if there is adequate rainfall in the shorter rainy season between October and December.
