What we do

Farm Africa’s local staff provide the tools and expertise to enable smallholders in eastern Africa to increase their harvests, whether they farm crops, livestock, fish or the forest.

We train them to be more commercial, adding value to surpluses by milling, drying, or turning their produce into products that fetch a higher price.

With better food for their families and reliable incomes from their businesses, farmers can build for the future.

Crops

Crops

Eight out of ten rural Africans scrape their living from small plots. Soils are often poor, drought ever near.

Farm Africa brings in the smart crops, drought-busting techniques and marketing skills that make such tough farming viable, profitable and sustainable.

Livestock

Livestock

Where land is arid and crop cultivation hard, many farmers make their living by keeping animals.

Animals are generally the family’s most valuable possession and Farm Africa helps with basic animal health services.

Fisheries

Fisheries

Pollution and overfishing have put wild fish stocks under pressure. The price of fish has rocketed, hitting people hard.

Farm Africa is pioneering fish farming in Kenya, which ensures sustainable protein supplies and a major new source of income.

Forests

Forests

Deforestation destroys wildlife and dehydrates soil. We help forest communities replace traditional tree-cutting and wood and charcoal selling with new eco-friendly enterprises that protect biodiversity and provide a sustainable income for future generations.
