After 18 months away from the field, it has been nice coming back to check on operations at Raintree Farms. The moringa powder facility is operational, but there is still a lot of work left to do in terms of improving production efficiencies. The production crew is well-trained and knowledgeable, but could use a lot machinery and training to help them be more productive. Nonetheless, there has been a lot of progress made. The seed trees are still in their maturation phase. There was a lot of trimming that had to be done. Trimming the trees allows them to spring new branches that will produce more seeds. It also allows for the main trunk to strengthen, which will help support the new branches – which will be heavy with new seedlings.
