Bee keeping is picking pace in the unions societies with the introduction of more than 500 bee hives in both coffee societies and women groups.
A total of more than 500 kgs of honey is expected to be harvested at the close of this year. The bee keeping project is in line with the unions initiative to ensure food security and as well as product diversification within its societies.
With support by development partners such as We effect, the union has sourced the bee hives for the societies and has continued to offer training support to the farmer on bee keeping, harvesting and local processing of the honey.
Plans are underway to revive the honey processing plant at the union.
