Young Farmers Success Stories

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!

Meet Ann Kimathi who was tired of working in the hotel industry for the past 11 years and opted to give farming a try. Taking advantage of the lessons given by the government of mushroom farming, Ann says leaving formal employment to start her own business began as her retirement plan.

Meet Martha Otieno from Homabay County, a young farmer reaping big from farming. she is a woman in her twenties from a community not known for farming but earning so much through agriculture?
