Meet our Farmers

Our spices come from small villages and subsistence farmers in Zanzibar. 

With us you won’t find any large scale, orderly rows of monoculture spice plants. Instead, you will find our spices growing between the banana and jackfruit trees which the farmers use to feed themselves and their families.

We believe imperfect spices are better than mechanically sorted supermarket-looking ones. We feel it gives them character, and makes them even more delicious for that very reason. 

Learn about the farms and the people who have grown the spices we proudly share with you on their behalf!
