Venturing into farming is not easy for young people. However, around the world, young farmers are developing innovative strategies that allow them to access land, capital and markets. We wish to start an initiative to document young sustainable farmers in Kenya.
Young Farmers Success Stories is an initiative that aims to inspire and encourage the next generation of sustainable farmers. We like to show and share inspiring stories about young farmers who have – despite the many difficulties – managed to set up farming initiatives which are innovative, viable and sustainable!
