TINY FARMS ON A LARGE SCALE
Smart, Decentralised, Regenerative Agriculture
WORKING WITH NATURE
Sustainable Farming can restore the environment to a state that supports a healthy and stable society. We want to rebuild the topsoil and habitat lost due to industrial farming by fundamentally shifting agriculture to the benefit of the planet and those that are vitally responsible for growing our food in a regenerative way.
We network tiny farms on a large scale and use biomimicry developed methodology and smart technology to produce nutrient dense food in a way that regenerates bio mass in the soil and draws carbon down into the ground where it belongs.
We work with land stewards to diversify and decentralise production (which increases resilience and reduces risk). We centralise services and ulitlise platform technology to create the necessary economies of scale to effect meaningful change.
We establish farm to fork supply chains and aggregate hyper-local produce to meet the demands of eco conscious off-takers, freeing up farmers to focus on innovation.
We aim to make farming fun so that younger generations are inspired to become part of the soil building revolution.
THE PLUG-N-PLAY TINY FARM
We combine the Technology tools and farming methodology we have developed into a Plug-n-play Tiny farm model that can be deployed on sites as small as 1 acre. We Network these tiny farms that collectively produce, at scale, local nutrient dense grass fed lamb, pasture-raised chicken, protein filled eggs and raw unadulterated honey

MOB, MOW, MOVE METHODOLOGY
Closed loop regenerative agriculture system
SHEEP ARE MOBBED CLOSE TOGETHER
Mimicking the natural behaviour of wild herbivores (like buffalo) on the savannah that herd tight to avoid predation
SHEEP MOW THE GRASS
Sheep are designed to eat grass and not grains. Grass-fed meat contains less total fat than grain-fed, but a lot more omega-3 fatty acids and CLA, which are both linked to health benefits.
SHEEP FERTILISE THE LAND
Ruminants have an amazing way of processing grass and provide unbelievable fertiliser. No need to bring in costly external synthetic inputs.
SHEEP ARE MOVED TO NEXT PATCH OF FRESH GRASS
Grass wants to be eaten and trampled - it stimulates re-growth. Animals are moved on before the grass leaves its rapid growth state
CHICKENS FOLLOW THE SHEEP
In the same way that the egrets follow the buffalo in the wild the chickens symbiotically perform a function of pest control for the sheep while feeding on protein rich bugs and fly larvae. They also scratch up and spread the sheep droppings while adding their own manure to the system.
CARBON IS DRAWN DOWN
Carbon is sequestered into the soil increasing its ability to retain water. Each season the local ecosystem gets more and more resilient and more and more productive, increasing the carrying capacity of the land. As the carrying capacity increases the volume of food and the nutrient density of that produce goes up.
let's Crowd Farm
With our technology partners we have developed a proprietary field data collection and iOT platform that allows our farmers to conduct daily headcounts and update the status of not only each farm but the condition and exact location of each animal.
Field management tools
Africa Appropriate Livestock management tools. Smart electric fencing, portable sheep pens and mobile chicken coops allow for the efficient daily moving of livestock onto fresh pasture with minimal effort. These tools enable the Mob, Mow Move Methodology that is designed to build soil!
The breeds of Egg layers and Sheep we provide have been selected for their resilience and suitability to the local environment and conditions. They are truly African breeds! We provide the sheep, chickens and swarmed hives in quantities congruent with the carrying capacity of your land
Off Take Agreements
We provide off take agreements to our farmers taking care of marketing, and sales, allowing small scale producers to focus on farming.
Circular Economy Supply
We constantly strive to reduce costs for our farmers by supplying feed and inputs that are derived from the outputs or waste from other systems and processes. Spent grain from beer brewing for example can reduce chicken feed costs by up to 30%.
WHY GO TINY
Farming is challenging but by going tiny we overcome many of the obstacles currently facing large scale food production
