The Kevote wet mill was established in 1957 by a group of 100 farmers affiliated with the Kirurumwe FCS, who had planted their first trees seven years before in 1950. The cooperative has expanded to include three processing facilities, including Kianjuki and Ngaindethia, and has roughly 2600 active farmers as
members. On the same day, cherries are hand-picked and transported to the wet mill. Cherries are
cleaned and sorted in water drawn from a nearby river, then filtered and cleaned before being returned. The cherries are spread out to dry in the sun before being bagged and transferred to a dry mill before being shipped to Nairobi for export.
