The Clinton Development Initiative, part of the Clinton Foundation, is providing smallholder farmers in Tanzania with agriculture/agronomic and increased market access, allowing farmers to increase crop yields and improve livelihoods.
Gibb's Farm is one of the oldest guesthouses in Northern Tanzania--a working Farm located on the forested slopes of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Gibb's Farm hugs nearly a mile of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, part of a 3,200 square mile reserve, a vast 10-acre organic fruit and vegetable garden provides 90% of the ingredients needed for fresh, home-cooked meals and complete with the 2nd largest solar powered hot water system all of this with uncompromised luxury.
We are raising funds to buy farm equipment, improved seeds, Pesticides and fertilizers so we can add an additional 8 acres. Click https://www.gofundme.com/TanzaniaOnionFarm to donate to our cause. We will be posting more videos. Subscribe to our channel

This is an unedited version of a video walk through of farming in East Africa, specifically Northern Tanzania. It is a great educational tool and provides a glimpse into Agribusiness and Agriculture, both projects I work on in Tanzania, Kenya, and Uganda. Thank you to Edson for taking the time. Smaller edited versions of this and other farms will be made available, but this is a good educational video.
A perspective on large scale farming from rural communities in Tanzania.
The business, which was a new development, comprises soya processing, a feed-mill, a poultry business and a large silo storage chain. The business sells two main products; day-old chicks and poultry feed. The poultry breeder operation includes rearing, laying and hatching facilities. The feed mill produces high quality broiler and layer chicken feed. The feed and day-old chicks are sold through an internal distribution network that was developed from scratch but now covers seven locations across Tanzania. Large silo storage infrastructure has been constructed to store the key raw materials.
Tanzania’s government wants to increase food production to ensure that it can feed its population in the future. They are doing this by giving incentives to small farmers. Betrida Kayega has joined such an initiative in the Kilombero region. For more Africa on the move, go to: http://www.dw.com/en/africa-on-the-move/t-19051251
In Tanzania, the USAID/Feed the Future-funded NAFAKA project is helping farmers adopt new technologies that lead to greater efficiency and increased productivity. NAFAKA trained Evodius Molokozi, a rice farmer in Morogoro Region, on good farming practices. Nafaka is also helping Evodius as he scales up production of his innovation: a low-cost, hand-held rice weeder that greatly reduces labor. Through this video, other farmers in Tanzania are able to replicate the rice weeder and see how good agricultural practices save time and money. In addition to improving rural incomes and food security, these kinds of innovations are particularly helpful for women, who do much of the difficult hand-weeding of rice fields in Tanzania.
