Kenilworth is the main factory for 250 small holders (a small holder is an independent farmer who grows tea on small plots of land - generally about 2 or 3 acres). Kenilworth annually produces over 1.2 million pounds of tea and employs a work force of 930 people. This estate was planted in tea at the turn of the century by an English pioneer who named the estate after the famous Kenilworth Castle in Warwickshire, England. Kenilworth estate is situated close to the town of Ginigathena in the Central Province of Sri Lanka - a part of the Nuwara Eliya district.
