“We have maintained a parent stock of 10 pigs,” each pig can produces 15 to 20 piglets every year.
“We sell each piglet at $33. This is indicative of how high modern farming can uplift society, and if every household in our community could do this as a business, every household daily income would increase.”- James, Project Leader
Although exotic pigs consume about 20% more food than local breeds, the heaviest weighs up to 300kg compared to 100kg, the maximum weight for local breeds.
A kilogram of pork costs between $3, in the urban area. We are able to use the proceeds from the venture to educate children and help the community with basic needs.
We urgently need to raise money for the installation of a 500 liter water to ease harvesting of rain water to sustain the pigs. The workers are currently having to get water from a well outside the farm on bicycles involving several runs a day and this can be very tough in the hot dry season.
We also need to purchase a small pick up truck to help with transportation of produce, feed, vet runs and any other farm work.
Here are responses from people who have visited the farm:
