Akina farm (Fontana group) is located on the outskirts of Nakuru in Njoro, about two hours northwest of Nairobi. Situated at 2,350 m above sea level the farm was started in 2007 as one of the first high-altitude rose farms in the area. The cultivated area is currently 17 ha of greenhouses, with the intention of expanding to 19 ha in 2016.
In the greenhouses, 80% of the Roses are cultivated on hydroponics and 20% in soil, Akina operates differently to most conventional farms, as each variety is graded independently in the field maintaining high-quality standards and high levels of accountability and traceability on any quality-related issues.
