When Jane Luo and her husband began growing coffee on Yirong Farm in 1987, their coffee was among the first coffee grown in Menglian prefecture, in Yunnan. Today, over 30 years later, their daughter, Jean Luo is working with her mother, Jane, to take the next step forward and expanding their business into exporting. Jane’s partner, Song, is also involved in managing Agronomy and Farm Operations.
Yirong Farm has also emerged as a community leader for economic opportunities, especially for minority nationalities, including the Va, La Hu and Dai nationalities. Yirong Farm’s focus on coffee production has spurred numerous industries that have been major job creators, allowing many households to purchase their own transportation and build houses for their family.
