Invetta Model Farm (IMF), is demonstration farm place that teaches good farming practices. Located in South West Uganda about 150 KM from the capital city Kampala, in Kalungu District in a vibrant green village of Kyamusoke. Kalungu District has an area of 811.6km2 and a population of about 180,000 people. Invetta Model Farm is a demonstration plot, where farmers receive hands-on experience in preparing the land, planting fruit trees, controlling pests and diseases, managing the soil and harvesting the fruits.
We are in the pig farming business because we want to leverage on the vast opportunities available in the livestock farming industry in Africa, to contribute our quota in growing the Uganda Economy; in national food (meat) production, raw materials production for industries; to export agriculture produce from Uganda to other countries and over and above to make profit. Invetta Ltd is well equipped and well positioned to become one of the leading pig farming businesses in Uganda, which is why we have been able to source for the best hands and equipment to run the business.
Commercial fruit farming can alleviate poverty in rural Uganda. A mango tree can yield 500 – 600 mangoes a year and has a productive life of more than 50 years. For rural farmers, like those in Kalungu District, this means introducing a new crop or finding new value in a product they had taken for granted.
IMF will purchase all their fruits at a higher than average market price. IMF is going to process all its fruits into highest quality, high value fruit concentrate for export. Fruit concentrates fetch far higher prices on the world market than fresh fruit. With another added advantage of concentrates having longer shelf life than fresh fruits.
With a market now available for their mangoes, the farmers are discovering a new source of income – and a new investment for their future. Sustainable fruit farming to farmers in Kalungu villages will mean quality education for their children; pension for the elderly and health insurance for all participating families
INVETTA is committed to community outreach through dissemination of commercialization of agriculture as a way of empowering the community against poverty. As we succeed in our objective we will also ensure that our business activities aim to have a positive impact and raise living standards and economic wellbeing in the areas of operation as well as working towards protecting the local environment.
