VT Artisan Coffee Supports Honey Bee Project in Mexico
With coffee rust decimating crops across Latin America, coffee farmers need strategies and tools to diversify their livelihoods & feed their families. With that in mind, VT Artisan, via Food4Farmers, has donated money for the honey bee project at the CESMACH coffee cooperative in Jaltenago, Mexico. This will afford coffee farmers there to learn about commercial apiculture, be trained as beekeepers, and will be given access to credit to begin their honey bee businesses.
