Welcome to my updated blog post on the best farming practices for making money in Kenya. As an experienced farmer and businessperson, I aim to provide you with the latest information and insights on profitable farming practices.

Our main goal remains the same – to make money through farming and make it big! In this updated post, I will share with you the three types of farming business activities you can start and provide updated costings and profits/losses for each. I will also attach downloadable pdf files of various business models for your convenience.

  1. Fast Earners: These are farming activities that return your investment within a short period of three months. Most of these activities involve growing vegetables such as tomatoes, beans, watermelons, onions, cucumbers, capsicum, cabbages, managu, potatoes, Boma Rhodes hay, Lucerne hay, cauliflower, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, green grams, spinach, spruce, kales (sukuma wiki), strawberries, and sweet peppers. These crops mature quickly and can generate significant profits within a short time.
  2. Medium Earners: These are farming activities that take between 5-6 months to mature. Examples include fish farming, garlic farming, and raising sheep and goat meat business. With careful planning and execution, these activities can yield excellent returns on your investment.
  3. Slow Earners: These are farming activities that take more than 10 months to generate returns on your investment. They include maize farming, dairy farming, bull rearing, pineapple farming, and sugarcane farming. Although these activities require more patience and investment, they can generate substantial profits in the long run.

It’s essential to note that the profitability of any farming activity depends on various factors, including market demand, climate, and production costs. As such, it’s crucial to conduct thorough research and planning before starting any farming activity. Be sure to factor in all production costs, including land, labor, inputs, and marketing, when assessing the profitability of any activity.
