Why you should become a Farmwella farmer

Over the years, Farmwella has invested in developing small farms monitoring technologies, sustainable smart farming production systems, and equitable marketing systems that are suitable for African agricultural systems.

Infrastructure

Our Two-Acre farms help farmers optimize production and profitability. Most vegetable farmers in Nigeria only operate for six months out of the year because of the lack of access to irrigation in the dry season.

Farm Support Services

With the infrastructure provided by our solution, we can ensure that consistent and high-quality crop production continues throughout the year. Season extension alone will greatly increase production capacity

Guaranteed Market

There is a guaranteed market for every vegetable produced through the Two-Acre farm through collaboration with our sister company, Eatwella. The guaranteed market reduces risk and provides the certainty needed to increase productivity and profitability.

All produce from the Two-Acre farm will be marketed through colaboration with our sister company, Eatwella. Without business education and an understanding of fluid market systems, farmers often drastically undersell their product. Farmwella helps farmers maximize profit through a unique collaboration system as well as guarantee minimum price offering by Eatwella. This collaboration creates a stable market for farmers and allows Eatwella to market the Farmwella harvest as premium produce. Eatwella’s ability as a corporate organization to package, ship, and market a product far exceeds the ability of individual farmers. This marketing system will remove the weight of marketing and selling from the farmers’ shoulders, allowing farmers to focus on maximizing the yield, quality, and productivity of their farm.
Not all typical Nigerian farmers can afford the rent but ALL Farmwella’s farmers can. Our pricing system is based on experiences gathered from the existing Two-Acre farms. We developed the pricing in such a way that the farmers can start making profit within three months of operation on the Two-Acre farm. Each farmer will be paying an average of $65 per month while making an average profit of $647 per production cycle (three months). More than 60% of smallholder farmers in Africa makes about $2 per day while a starting Farmwella farmer makes $7 per day even under worst case scenario. The combination of the farm infrastructure, on-farm physical and technological monitoring, and a guaranteed market system creates improved productivity and profitability uncommon in Nigeria, but, it is also designed to be affordable for farmers.
