Our organic farm products:


DRINKING WATER - 100% NATURAL and NOT purified - 20L refill bottle for only 150 Sh !

GOOD DRINKING WATER - so precious and healthy - nevertheless: some have none and others do not appreciate it ...

 

Compared to "purified" or "modified" bottled water you buy in the supermarket at comparibly high prices our fresh and natural drinking water is not only of good tested quality but also remains vital and energetic - try it, you will taste the difference !

 

Quality facts from the lab-tests of KEBS (kenyan bureau of standardisation) and POLUCON Mombasa:

  • PH 7.6  (allowed range is 6.5 - 8.5)
  • TDS (total dissolved solids) 430  (allowed range up to 1,000)
  • Coliforms or E-Coli:  NONE (allowed "shall be absent)

Our water derives from our own 500 feet deep well and is stored, according to our geologist in very old caverns. it's therefore simply pure natural water, nothing added not treated at all. SIMPLY NATURAL !!!

 

In order to comply with our Eco-Standards and to avoid plastics we sell our water only through refilling your bottle. we dont sell bottles ourselves. How to buy our water ?
