It is a mixed farming enterprise incorporated in 2006 which evolved from Bulansuku Farm a registered but unincorporated farming business started in 1999. The estate has been in operation for 9 years, and was founded by Mr. G. Lule and also directed by Mr. Ezra Lugya.

Workforce is composed by 16 permanent workers and over 30 temporary workers who alternate during the seasons of crop harvest and planting.

These include, pineapples, horticultural crops, avocado, mangoes and bananas, including coffee grown on a larger commercial scale. Coffee is the main source of the estates' income, where wet processing and premium quality dry processed coffee are produced.
The Estate manages a coffee nursery in collaboration with Zibull'attudde coffee farmers association. The nursery has been a good boost in helping farmers curb the coffee wilt destruction of trees, and also to help in increasing coffee production.
The estates has several livestock on farm which include but not limited to; piggery, poultry (layers) and cattle, these enhance on the organic matter production on-farm to increase sustainability of the farm soils, and deter dependence on inorganic fertilizers.
The estates works hand in hand with a local coffee shop (1000 Cups) to promote not only local coffee consumption but also offer the coffee champions, who plant themselves a coffee tree and later as the years go by can receive coffees from their trees if they left their addresses behind. This programme is called the Coffee Safari.
