Composition of the farm

  •  Local diary (cattle producing on average 8 liters per day).
  •  Goats. The goats were also introduced to facilitate pedagogical training on small ruminants in the project and research work for Agriculture students.
  •  Poultry unit. This unit was restocked with Broiler birds which are tended by Agriculture students.
  •  Horticulture.
  •  Animal traction. This is simply engaging animal power in farm activities such as ploughing, transportation and many others.
  •  Apiculture – bee keeping
  •  Tree nursery establishment
  •  Mushroom production
  •  Rabbit production
  •  Organic piggery production
  •  Wine making
  •  Liquid soap / jelly production.
  •  I.M.O – Indigenous microorganism production for organic productions within the farm.
  •  Organic tea leaves making for diabetic patients etc.

Challenges being faced:

  •  Inadequate tools and equipment to facilitate farm activities.
  •  Unstable market to sell farm products since students and staff get holiday breaks.
  •  Pests and diseases which have affected both crops and animals.
  •  Inadequate funding which limits implementation and expansion of the farm business.
  •  Late funding of farm activities especially in crop production.
  •  Out dated / dilapidated farm facilities e.g. Chicken houses which habour pests and parasites.
  •  No modern milk production room hence lowering the quality and life span of milk.
  •  No space for storage of farm produce and other farm tools and equipment.
  •  Lack of office space for Farm Manager.
