Jelmah Herbella is a business operating in The Gambia that works with farmers to produce organic farm produces on a large scale using simple farming methods and green manure to be ensure sustainable health for the greater community. We create a direct market for these farmers by giving them inputs (seeds and fertilizers) to produce and buy all the harvest from them. This allows the local farmers to increase productivity and enhance their living standards since they are assured that all their produces will be bought at the end of the farming season that help improve life of Farmers.
