How I ventured into Herb farming.I have my fair share of lessons learnt &optimistic about the future

Better try and fail than fail to try!! That’s the mantra our agri- preneur this week lives by.

Elvis Kingsley had tried various ventures which didn’t thrive as planned but got one lucky break. He now exports herbs to Europe and Arab countries. The journey has not been easy either, from Conmen to a changing export market in the wake of Covid-19.

    I bought .27 acres to start herbal farming. I choose it too because I don’t need a lot of space to make money. I was making a couple thousands a month from my small garden.

    There is no company in kenya which buys from you and packages these herbs in dry state.

  19. watwego daniel on July 18, 2021 at 2:46 am

    "…having tried these other things, God inspired into me to do herbs farming." I have played that part like thrice. In all things acknowledge Him and He will show you the way to go. All the best!

  20. Allen Mavundukure on July 18, 2021 at 2:47 am

    I am sorry for your loss and it broke my heart to know you just composted all those herbs. Maybe you work towards adding value to your products to give them a much longer shelf life and more income for you.

    Dry your herbs and venture into other markets. Dry herbs, if done right can last a long time. The mint is great for teas. God bless you.

  26. Ethnic Boulevard on July 18, 2021 at 2:57 am

    Dry them and make spice mixes and teas for consumption and cosmetic use

    What herbs do you have in your farm. I’m sure that there’s enough market add value. I recommend herbs for healthy reasons.

  32. Priscilla Wangui on July 18, 2021 at 2:59 am

    Do value addition to strike a balance when the market is not stable

    What herbs?

  39. Stella Star on July 18, 2021 at 3:04 am

    Where did you buy the seedlings or seeds for hybrid quality herbs?

  40. Cherry Mac on July 18, 2021 at 3:04 am

    Wow his english is on another level.

  41. Patchwork Gardens on July 18, 2021 at 3:05 am

    You know he loves what he does, and I feel the same way, I am not interested in employment. It’s to bad how restaurants have vanished, I depend upon them for winter season income. In the wake of market shifts, I’ve noticed that curb side pickup is becoming the essential adaptation, also selling live plants now that everyone is starting their own garden, or window herbs. Becoming an agronomist yourself, and teaching people how to grow gardens, then taking clients for garden design, and using your farm labor as landscapers to build, is a great way of meshing together multiple components of agriculture, while keeping employees busy with side work during these slow wholesale times.

    I would be an expert for 10 ksh.

    Fabulous!

  46. Debbie Spencer on July 18, 2021 at 3:14 am

    So sorry that you did not have someone to advise you to grind and bottle the herbs instead of throwing it away. If you want ideas for anything always ask a woman because our brains never stop working.

  47. Ndumi Gaba on July 18, 2021 at 3:15 am

    Hi I am also a herb farmer from South Africa please email me at Ndumi.gaba@gmail.com

  48. Lance Gumbi on July 18, 2021 at 3:17 am

  49. Mr K on July 18, 2021 at 3:18 am
