YUM’s community based projects aim to provide a better standard of living for those families living in poverty. YUM aims to create a foundation for long-term stability and growth by promoting cooperation between members of each community and show communities what can be achieved when they work together.
Situated in the fertile mountains of West Java, the YUM Organic Farm is a social impact enterprise that grows and sells fresh organic vegetables. Established in 2007, the farm is also a learning facility for young farmers, students and adults to learn about environmental sustainability and ecological practices when it comes to growing food. The YUM Organic Farm prides itself on its commitment to serve the surrounding community by funding projects through Yayasan Usaha Mulia.
Certified organic since 2022, the organic farm’s mission is to promote a healthy community and environmental sustainability through organic farming and education programs. The farm employs a mixture of organic techniques and permaculture practices that support sustainable outcomes. Methods used on the farm include:
- Composting green waste and animal manures
- Use of compost teas
- Integrated pest management
- Companion planting
- Crop rotation
- Non-hybrid seed saving
- Animal husbandry
The organic farm also offers education projects to schools and groups that provides a hands-on interactive learning experience. Every year, more than 600 visitors come and learn about organic farming, generating income for the farm and for other YUM projects in need of funding.
