About us

Karen Roses is a family owned business that was founded in 1989. The company has 6 rose farms in Kenya. The company is a well recognized name in the industry for producing quality roses all year round.

The main farms are located at Eldama Ravine in the Rift Valley with a near perfect location and ecological environment for rose cultivation. At 2010m to 2070m above sea level, Ravine's altitude is ideal for rose production. The latitude 0º longitude - 40º east, virtually on the equator and just slightly east, guarantees all year round sunshine which drives optimal production. The average rainfall of 1100mm ensures the water reservoirs are replenished by rain water to last at least 4 months of the year.

The minimum and maximum temperature 11º to 32º and relative humidity of 85% at night and 34% during the day help with management of pest and disease.

Combine these factors with the passion and dedication of our staff and the investments in capital equipment and the latest sustainable technologies and you have an outfit poised for success at delivering the best roses out of East Africa.
