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 connect farmers to a wide range of equipment and farm items they can choose from depending on their activities.
Our online store saves time in sourcing farm supplies so that our customers can spend more working on the farm and not moving from shop to shop searching for a product. Our online store is open for order 24/7 to offer the most convenient shopping.
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 online platform, which makes it easier for beginner farmers to get the best experience as they start their farming ventures.
