Ivan Schiffer's health food concept
of crops from Yunnan
The Procince of Yunnan is endowed with an extraordinary diversity of
soils, crops, and a wide range of climatic conditons. Most of our farmers
are from remote mountain communities and they do not use fertilizers
nor pesticides to produce a healthy crop.
If you need any product be grown under such naturally healthy environmental
conditions, we will be glad to become your partners. You may either
choose from products we have already under production (click into the
pictures to te left) or provide your own seeds material and we will
farm the products exactly in line with your quality requirements.
To take away the pressure of fluctuating international markets from
both the farmer and the trader, we encourage contract growing arrangements.
Read how this works.
Please write to us if you have any further questions.
