Kayon is located 510 kilometers south of Addis Ababa, and the property crosses the border of two villages—Taro and Sewana—located in the Oromia region, in the Guji zone of the Shakiso district of Ethiopia. It is established in 2012 by farmer Esmail Hassen and is still managed by him and his family. They have 25 permanent workers and 300 seasonal. The farm has own washing station, huller, pulpier, warehouse and transport.
Kayon offers free transportation services as well as financial support for building schools and administration buildings for the community. The farm competes with a nearby mining village for seasonal workers, so Kayon tend to pay higher wages to their pickers in order to incentivize them returning year after year
