Singing Rooster works with small producers across Haiti.
We meet then exceed principles of fair trade. For example, we pay as much as twice for crops and return 100% of proceeds from sales back to farmer communities in the form of agricultural, small business management, and entrepreneurial development activities.
The per-capita gross national income is less than $800 a year for a farmer family. We’re building rural economies because farmers, not middlemen, spend money at home.
Business Training : Coffee & cocoa farmers have harvesting crops for centuries. With modest instruction in basic accounting and training on costs of product transformation, farmers now show younger generations a viable way to earn livings.
Equipment Upgrades : We research, investigate and test equipment that may transform farming. We visit countries (Colombia, Nicaragua, Canada) where farmers are organized and value education. With small upgrades, an entire village may be transformed into a powerhouse.
Environmental Impact : Along with managing the entire supply chain on behalf of producers, we’ve planted tens of thousands of seedlings (coffee & fruit tree canopies) in one of the most deforested nations.
In a country where less than 3% of lands are forested, this is significant. Read more –> coffee trees are changing the face of Haitian mountains.
We’re constantly regenerating fields. Please donate to our coffee seedling nursery efforts.
One seedling provides 20 years of income; 5 bucks plants 10 trees.
