Ethiopia: Giday “Ollie” Behre
The Limmu Kossa farm is located in the south-western corner of the Limu Zone, situated within the Djimma (Jimma) region of Ethiopia. Founded in 2000 by Giday Behre, who now owns and operates two ecologically friendly wet mills and one eco-mill equiped to process both washed and dry coffee. His farm employs over 500 workers, non of which are migrant or transitory. Rather, Giday hires members of his village and community, supporting them not only through sustainable year-round work, but also through social projects. Giday continually aids in funding the construction of schools and roads, as well as making subsidized goods available to all in the surrounding villages. His reputation as a benefactor and leader of his community earned him the nickname “Ollie,” meaning “One Who Uplifts” in the local language.
