The dense Thai forest is on it's way to facing extinction. With increased industrialization and illegal logging being it's fiercest predators. As the forest decreases, it takes with it the natural habitat of many native animals, among them, the Asian Elephant.
ENP Coffee is grown as a vital partnership in these reforestation efforts. Through ENP Coffee, villages are encouraged to switch to more sustainable farming practices that are healthy for both the environment and farmers. 90% of our coffee farms are in heavily covered forests with the other 10% in developing forests. These coffee farms represent the option to work with nature in providing for our communities instead of working against it.
Set high in the hills of northern Thailand are many different hill tribe villages. These villages are the home to the various indigenous people groups of Thailand. These villagers are used to working in harmony with the land. Because of large corporations taking over the agriculture industry, many of these communities have been forced into farming with harmful chemicals to themselves and their native land. Again, due to increased industrialization these communities are struggling economically - especially women in finding work.
ENP Coffee provides an alternative to these harmful conditions. All of the coffee is successfully grown without the use of unnatural chemicals. It also plays a huge role in the health of a self-sustaining economy while providing empowerment for women to work in their communities. Elephant Nature Park staff also take the time to provide education and the tools needed to create a long term plan for the villages.
