Lwankuba Farm

The "New Life" vision for Lwankuba farm was for farming, training for local subsistence farmers, education, renewal and mission.

Lwankuba Farm consists of 500 acres of land which the Mityana Charity has leased and part of the land is under cultivation. Nabukenya Primary School is on the same site.

We are working in partnership with Hall Hunter Partnership (HHP) a soft fruit growing company in England who generously made a commitment to support the project in 2009.

HHP shipped a tractor over to help plough the land as oxen were previously being used to plough and also to collect water for irrigation. Working with the charity the farm has its own borehole and irrigation system.

In 2010 after much research, it was decided to grow ROBUSTA COFFEE on the farm for the export market.

Harvesting started in 2012 and it is anticipated that a processing plant will be installed during 2013 in time for the 2014 season.

We are planning to provide a service to local growers and introduce them to the export market. Alongside this we are developing this farm as a model farm for training.
