PT Harendong was started by Dr. Alexander Halim as part of his personal vision, to use "green", sustainable farming to promote a better quality of life for the world. He has made it his commitment to build and maintain this sustainable tea farm, and provide healthy organic products to his customers.
This is all while protecting the environment, and leaving behind a positive impact on the world.
Alex's business philosophy has extended to his community as he has inspired other farmers to value sustainability and to help protect their beautiful natural environment.
PT Harendong Green Farms is located on Halimun Mountain, near Halimun-Salak National Park, a protected national area with incredible biodiversity. The climate is lush, tropical, and very humid, with abundant rainfall and rich volcanic soils. The gardens are located at 800m-900m elevation.
Alex credits his great tasting tea to his finely tuned skill of processing tea and the natural resources of the surroundings, like the clean mountain water.
