In this subtropical highland climate we are growing a variety of crops including peanuts (karanga), bananas (ndizi), watermelon (Majitiki), tomato (nanya), and potato’s (nyazi). Our produce is shared by our farm helpers and sold to market to support our after school learning program for children in our neighborhood.  


In addition to horticultural crops, our farm grows corn twice a year during the biannual rain season which characterizes the climate of the region. Our corn grain is used to feed our animal friends who live on our farm. Herald, Blessa, Normando, Noah, and all our chickens greatly enjoy all parts of the corn plant. At our farm Mama Noelle processes our corn grain and prepare it to be made into flour. Ugali, a staple in Tanzanian cousine, is made of corn flour.  


Our farm values respect and kindness to all creatures and offers a peaceful space for members of our community to find employment, for children to play, learn English and learn the importance being kind to pets and animals. We hope you can visit our farm and sanctuary and get to experience the peaceful culture of rural farming life in the heartland of Africa.
