THE FARMWORKS IMPACT STORY

THE FARMWORKS INSTITUTE

Across our farms, we will need over 3,500 farm technicians across farm management, water irrigation, crop protection, equipment operation & maintenance and post-harvest handling.

The FarmWorks Institute is a farm-based apprenticeship programme, developing skills that are desperately lacking in Kenyan Agriculture.

We are specifically focused on the beliefs, mindsets and behaviours that are essential for our operations and growth. Our farmers must be co-owners of our purpose.

The Institute is a public good. While we develop human capital for FarmWorks, we have open programmes for other farms and support community farmers.

SUPPORTING OUR SMALL-HOLDER FARMING COMMUNITIES

Our professionally run farms are often embedded within farming communities, with thousands of subsistence & small-farm holders. We are uniquely placed, as farmers ourselves, to sustainably support these communities through our infrastructure and partners, to orchestrate the full range of solutions required for rural agricultural transformation.

I have worked in agriculture for 30 years. FarmWorks will be my most challenging task - but the one that will have the greatest impact and is the most necessary.

After managing over 325,000ha of farms I am convinced of the benefits of high-value crops on mid-sized farms. FarmWorks is developing the ability to do this at scale.
