Devastated coffee farm in Uganda

While in Uganda, I asked barista Martin Rogers to help me organize trip to the coffee farm in Uganda which turned dramatic. Not only they were 4 hours late for 7 hours car drive to the farm but I ended up in this farm (forgot the name) in Sipi area which was tragic to look and painful to watch. The whole farm was affected by leaf rust that killing the entire plantation, and less measures were taken to battle this disease. Costly maintenance, expensive materials, lack of proper fertilization and resources needed to sustain the farm and implement necessary measures with proper farming training showed its toll. But local children is what made my day, their smile, laugh and happiness in spite of poverty. Wish I had more time to spend and visit other farms.
