Mills in this region of the Wahgi Valley purchase cherry from smallholder farmers who each have about 1.5 hectares of land, growing about 2,500 trees per hectare.
Day lots are cupped and separated to build our containers, and lots which are microlot-worthy are processed separately.
Cherries are bought and sorted, then depulped and fermented dry for 24 hours. They are washed and dried on tarpaulins for three to six days.
