A Day at Blueboots Farm

The day starts at 7am where the farmers start gathering at the farm house bringing along their favourite farm tools. They come together and discuss what needs to be done for the day.

7.30am
Watering & caring for the baby plants at nursery.

8.30 to 10.30am
Good time to spray natural pesticide on plants as this is the time where the pests if most plants are active.

10.30am to 12pm
Going through existing plants on the field to survey their growth. Also weeding, pruning, making bamboo supports for plants who needs it.

12pm to 2pm
The farmers rest to avoid the hottest time of the day. Lunch, sleep, coffee time.

2pm to 3pm
Continue with work.

3pm to 4pm
Usually it will rain in Bogor and we do not need to water the plants. However, if it doesn’t rain we will water the plants. We also fertilize during this time.

4pm to 5pm
Clean and keep tools. Sit around and enjoy coffee, kretek and snacks made from home.

That is pretty much how a day at Blueboots Farm is like. Our schedule varies slightly every day, mostly depending on the issue that needs to be handled and the weather.
