Baraka Farm was founded with the mission of providing food and revenue to support the orphans living at the adjacent Lewa Children’s Home. The farm provides much-needed wholesome, healthy foods, including milk and cheese from its dairy-producing operation, with the surplus being sold in the marketplace.
In addition, Baraka Farm’s Practical Dairy Training Center offers training to local farmers on how to increase milk production from their small herds without having to purchase more cows, as well as best practices regarding hygiene, feeding and raising calves.
Baraka Farm’s current needs include expanding its irrigation system to be able to grow crops on the farm’s land which is now laying fallow, as well as purchase more farming equipment to more efficiently make use of the land currently under plow.
