PRODUCTS & SERVICES

The following are the products/services:

1. Irrigated Crop Farming: Our aim is to venture into irrigation farming. These farms will consist of 5 acres of yam, 15 acres of vegetables and 75 acres of maize. With the irrigation we can cultivate crops all year round. We will set up an irrigation system based on rain water harvesting and a simple mechanized underground water reservoir. The use of water bodies and boreholes will also be explored.

2. Guinea fowl hatchery and Rearing of animals: Research reveals to us that most guinea fowl farmers travel all the way to Tamale to hatch their eggs. And on several occasions the young guinea fowls die due to the movement. We therefore intend to provide a facility for hatching and keeping the day olds for few days before transferring them to the farmers. We will also set up a guinea fowl farm for their meat and eggs. In addition to guinea fowls,we will invest in the rearing of local chicken, rabbit, sheep and goats.

3. Seed Production: We produce certified seeds of different varieties for farmers. This will also be an irrigated farm to enable us produce all year round. The seed unit will establish a Seed Hub for grains, tubers and vegetable seedlings.

4. Management of Out-Growers and Aggregation: we will have a group of out-growers for maize and soybeans totaling 25 in all. We will provide the necessary inputs such as seeds, chemicals, tractor services etc. The cost of these inputs will be paid at harvest time with farm produce and we will aggregate the rest of their products for packaging and marketing.
