Our 140 hectares farm was established in 1989 by my father and ever since then, we have growing mangoes here. Due to the rich soil and good coastal climate, this part of Senegal is excellent for growing mangoes. Ten years after setting up, we converted to organic agriculture. When you look at the mango production here you can basically divide the growers in three different groups. Firstly you have organic certified farms like us. Then you have farms that produce conventional mangoes and the third group are farmers that work according to organic principles but are not certified organic. These farmers grow mangoes in harmony with nature as they have done for more than a century.
We are proud of the fact that we sell our organic Kent mango’s both overseas as well as here on the local market. Furthermore we are trying to stimulate more organic production by offering technical advice to local growers. This way we hope to have a positive impact in this region!
