The farmlands of the west and north of the continent have been transformed into vegetable gardens for the needy, as beef producers seek to expand production beyond the meat-dominated market.
With the global beef market now estimated at $1.2 trillion, the new market is opening up opportunities for some of the world’s most expensive meat producers, including Tyson, Tyson Livestock and Canadian beef giant Cargill.
As cattle ranches, which were once mainly grazed on a grassland-based diet, are converted into vegetable farms and gardens, they are opening up new markets for farmers who want to grow their own produce and sell it to restaurants, cafes and supermarkets.
The growing demand for local food has also spurred many meat producers to expand their operations into new areas of the country, where they are able to expand and expand their supply chains.
A prime example of this is the transformation of a rural dairy farm into a vegetable garden, which has become the latest in a series of recent developments to provide rural and urban communities with more nutritious and nutritious food.
The farm, located in the town of Ocotal, has been converted into a “farm-to-table” farm with a mix of vegetable gardens and pasture for pasture cattle, and a dairy processing facility to make milk for the market.
The new farm was established by the Ocotans and their community, which includes dairy farmers from the Ocotts, who started the initiative in 2008 after seeing how pasture cattle could be used for feed in the region.
They started their project after noticing a shortage of pasture cattle on pasture in the area, said Ocotican Dave Farrar, who helped with the conversion of the farm to vegetable gardens.
He said it was an effort to bring people together, but it was also about a bigger idea.
The Ocotics, who are based in the North Ocota region of western Kenya, said their intention was to develop and promote a sustainable agricultural sector.
“I think the way we are using the vegetable gardens to help people in rural areas and in urban areas is to create a positive relationship with the community,” Farrars said.
“It is a way to bring farmers together, to get them to come together, and to see if we can bring some economic value in the community, and the environment.”
The farm’s first crop, which was grown from seed and finished by the community’s cattle, was sold to a local restaurant and later sold at a local market.
While some of these new farm operations are owned by farmers, others are operated by local community groups and other organisations.
A dairy processing plant has been established to make cheese and cheese products for sale in the market, and there are also plans to develop vegetable gardens that will grow vegetables in a farmhouse, with the aim of providing nutritious food for the community.
The move has helped to change the perception of farmers as a class that does not get enough credit, said farmer Fergus Broughton.
“The farmers in this area are getting the respect that they deserve.
We are getting it because they are doing the work that needs to be done,” he said.
As beef producers grow their operations in new areas, they have to adapt their farming practices to cater for the demand of the local population.
“If we can help the local people in the way that we can, we are in a good position to see the impact that this is having on the local communities,” FARRAR said.
The Ocotans have already started to sell their meat in the markets and to restaurants.
“We have started selling in the supermarkets, which is great, because we can get a little bit of profit from that,” said Farrs.
“For the most part, people want to buy local, they don’t want to go to the big supermarket and they don´t want to pay for their meat,” he added.
The dairy farm will be the first to see its full-time crop of vegetables, which will be sold to restaurants for the first time.
In addition to vegetables, the dairy processing factory will produce milk, cheese and other dairy products, which are being distributed to restaurants across Kenya.
The farmers are also hoping to expand the vegetable garden on their property, which they hope will serve as a model for other dairy farms to follow.
“One of the things we are doing here is trying to show that it’s possible to grow vegetables on the land, and we are also trying to get other dairy producers to do the same,” FARS said.
