Blueboots Values: Sustainability

We are mindful of the environment. We minimize human footprint to the environment by being mindful to the farming and processing methods we implement.

Exploring The Wild Side

The wild side always hides a thing or two that made us want to come back for more. In the forest by our farm land, there are trees such as durian, cloves, teak and other trees waiting to be discovered. We love to bring our guests to the forest as it brings a pleasant surprise every time we came there.

A Farm Snapshot

For those of you who haven’t been to Blueboots Farm, we would like to share a snapshot of the farm’s map. Can you guess which one is our processing facility? And where do our butternut pumpkins grow?

Our Precious Cijeruk Farmers

Our farmers grew up in the local area of Cijeruk. They have been practicing traditional farming method, which is what we apply now at Blueboots Farm. The method is suitable for the farm because it has been used through generations and has been adapted to local soil condition, character of the land and also the weather. These farmers are our true source of knowledge when it comes to local farming wisdom.

Holding on to Our Values

One of our values is to be sustainable. We are mindful of the environment. We minimize human footprint to the environment by being mindful to the farming and processing methods we implement.

A Self Reminder

Sometimes, we need to remind ourselves about who we are, what we do and what we are trying to achieve. We realise being sustainable is more on balancing the cycle of people, planet and profit. These wholesome products we’re trying to achieve is more than just good organic products. For it to be a wholesome product, it takes the whole village, from the self-sustaining farm which requires the craftsmanship of the Blueboots family who are driven by the ethical entrepreneurship and some fun.

An experienced guy across various fields of agriculture (including horticulture, mushroom and chilli farming), supported with great administrative skill too.

His favourite plants are organic fruits and veggies. Pak Andi is passionate to grow commodities with high economic values, which are easy to grow, easy to maintain and have low production cost.
