We didn’t just wake up to procure farms and farmland in Zambia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, South Africa, Tanzania and the Cameroons since we do not select a type of farming that is unfamiliar to the region. Instead, we fully understand the fact that chances are that the soil or climate is unfavorable and that the odds are against success.

In selecting a farm, we are not guided solely by interested parties, such as real-estate brokers seeking a fee or a seller anxious to get rid of his property. Instead, we inquire fully into the past record of the farm, its yields, operating expenses, profits, and so on. We get advice from well-informed and disinterested sources as county agricultural agents. State-run extension services, agricultural institutions, or experimental stations, and the various farm organizations do help us on broader questions.
