Become a farmer
without owning a farm

Fund a farming business and get rewarded for it. Keep checking our website for more farming opportunities that need funders.

Our 2020 target is to raise funds for one million eggs to be produced monthly with 42 000 flock of chickens and a monthly revenue of about R1 008 000.00. This will generate a monthly reward of R168 000.00 that will be paid as reward to our funders. The more we grow, the more rewards we give to our funders.

Afri Farm Crowd is a crowd funding company with a vision to solve funding challenges faced by black farmers which includes:

  1. Funding for farming start-ups and expansions
  2. Finding markets for produced goods by crowd funding our own fruit and veg
  3. Crowd funding farming equipment and make them affordable to African farmers. Please see our products page for more information.
  4. Host an annual farming expo in partnership with our sister company – African Farmers Magazine. Part of the Funds generated from Expo will fund our fruit and veg which will open markets to productive African farmers
  5. Fund an annual digital farming magazine in Crop farming, Poultry, Piggery, Goat, Sheep and Cattle Farming







How does it work?

We currently have two farms we are crowd funding as a pilot. One in Walkerville and another in Hennops. We are also getting more farms from farmers who have land and chicken houses they are not using. If you have a farm with chicken houses that is not in use, talk to us. Our team will provide farm management skills, chicken/eggs sales and marketing, financial management and reporting, training of all farm staff members, arranging farming tours with all funders.

Go to our fund page and find a farming business to fund. Go through a short profile introducing the farm. Once you like the idea you click on fund and that will take you to a payment link. Once paid our office will be in contact with you and take you through the details which will include:

  • How regular reports will be sent to you
  • Details on visiting the farm
  • Detail on attending annual funders’ summit
  • How rewards will be made to all funders

Stockvel or Group Funders

This initiative will see us producing eggs in different farms using one brand. The idea is to get farms that are not profitable but have chicken houses or the owners are willing to build chicken houses and we will use the chicken houses for rearing 2000 chickens as a starter package. Since our farms will not be in the same geographical area this helps in establishing new markets.

It takes 5 months to grow the chickens to the point they start laying eggs. We then need a grace period from 5th month till 9th month to sell all the eggs produced and start paying back all your funded amount plus 10% reward and continue to pay that 10% from the 10th month until 24th month. All crowd funders will receive monthly reports by logging into our crowd funding portal where they can access their portfolio.

Please visit our fund page to finalise funding that suits your budget.

  • Afri farm crowd will manage the farm and ensure successful rearing of the chicks
