Complete Farmer: Celebrating One Year In Business

Somebody pinch us! Who knew 365 days could pass by so fast? This time last year, Complete Farmer was registered in Ghana and today just 12 months later, we are up and running. We are so excited to see that what began as an idea, has not only come to life but is now a growing reality.

Complete Farmer was founded on the goal of achieving a strengthened food security in Africa. We are encouraging more participation in agriculture through our tech platform which makes starting and managing a farm hassle-free and easily accessible to everyday people. Our clients are able to own farms and enjoy farming profits from the comfort of their homes while our skilled farmers and farm managers take over the management of their farms from land preparation till harvest and sales of produce. Our model that connects skilled farmers to everyday people- with or without farmland of their own, is creating more wealth for both the farmers and farm owners.
