Graduate Farmer is a one stop shop for all farmers across Kenya. We connect farmers to Practical “Hands On” Training, Farm Equipment and Supplies, Agricultural Information and Consultation.
The main aim of Graduate Farmer is to empower and guide the youth and women from becoming job seekers to creators through agribusiness value chain. We do this by providing them with all the necessary information and tools they normally lack when starting off.
Graduate Farmer is Kenya’s number 1 choice for Kenyan farmers with its blog platform having been voted the Best Agricultural Blog in Kenya at the BAKE Awards which was held in Nairobi Kenya on 2nd May 2015.
- Training and Farm Tours- For beginner farmers in Kenya to engage in productive farming and improve their livelihoods they need to get access to affordable agricultural training. Graduate Farmer has partnered with various private farms around Kenya to provide practical agricultural training to farmers who usually start farming with little to no information about it. We also organize farm tours to successful farms so that other farmers can get to learn and be inspired.
- Farm Equipment and Supplies- Starting a farm is not easy and most beginner farmers usually have a hard time searching for places where they can purchase affordable farm supplies. We supply drip irrigation kits and components, sprinkler systems, fish fingerlings and fish pond equipment to farmers in Kenya.
- Consultation- Graduate Farmer also provides expert advice with a practical hands on approach to integrated farm management and agronomy for low input agriculture. Our services focus on profitable and sustainable farming systems that follow best practice commercial principles for business, soils and the environment.
You have just completed University/College and you are wondering what comes next. You have studied for four years and at the back of your mind, you knew things were going to be rosy after you completed your education. I am sure you even planned where you were going to work and live right? Sadly though things are never what they seem to be. With a lot of degrees and diplomas in the market today, getting a job in Kenya is not easy. The reality is that not everyone is going to get a job on time and many of us waste a lot of time trying to apply for white collar jobs with no response.
Our Founder also experienced this and decided to venture into modern farming practicing Maize Farming and Horticulture to empower himself. After realizing farming had good returns he decided to reach out to other youth to show them how farming can change their lives.
The truth is as Kenyans, we have been hardwired since childhood to think that getting employed is the ultimate achievement in life and without employment we cannot be successful. We are here to tell you that there is another way out of your predicament: Agribusiness is the answer. If you have the right information, tools and training you can make agribusiness profitable for yourself and become a millionaire farmer.
Graduate Farmer is Kenya’s trusted agricultural company, which makes it easier for beginner farmers to get the best experience as they start their farming ventures.
