Trading Partner: Harvest Hands
Harvest Hand's mission is to work with people that are disadvantaged to form partnerships, programs, projects and small business enterprises. The farmers who grow this vanilla are small-scale landowners (between 0.5 and 2 acres) in the Ibanda District of Uganda. They practice mixed farming, including bananas, coffee and vanilla, as well as food for their family.
Direct Fair Trade Premiums: Harvest Hands and Level Ground provide sustainable income for small-scale farmers by paying fair prices and supporting the farmers with training in vanilla cultivation.
Description: Aromatic, naturally grown, "Grade A" vanilla beans from small-scale farmers in Uganda.
Split one vanilla bean and scrape out the delicious seeds inside. Use one vanilla bean for each tsp of extract in your recipe.
