DEVELOPMENTS AT WORK:
MFK Gardens Urban Farmer Nursery is a part of Pinnacle Foods & Hospitality Group the parent organisation to the franchise brand My Farmhouse Kitchens. We are a food manufacturing organisation in the making. The operation will focus on the manufacturing of our mainstay signature product the curry puffs. The product has grown in the market in the city and has helped us grow this far. This is since 2012, when we first established the organization. We have just crossed the 10,000 mark of likes on our FB page.
There are plans underway to list our products on Yamee, to setup a culinary school with experienced chefs on board to carry out programmes targetted at the busy executive-cum-culinary enthusiast, expatriate housewifes and offer corporate and couple bonding programmes, to offer personal chef services (in addition to event catering) and setup the MFK - The Shop, that will be mark the forerunners of our franchisee system. More about our food production expansion plans in our next letter.
OUR HISTORY WITH MFK-GARDENS FARM
In mid-2020, we began MFK-Gardens farm production venture. We produced crop seedlings for our local famers up to a capacity of 40K seedlings. The farm production is not a venture outside of who we are already. The idea is rooted in our name. My Farmhouse Kitchens. That the products we produce uses ingredients grown freshly in our gardens or nearby local farms. Today our focus is in supplying quality seedlings to farmers who in turn produce quality crops that we buy back for use in our food production. The decision to start this coincided with the onset of COVID19 lockdowns when locals farmers lost access to their usual suppliers in South Africa. We see this as an opportunity to grow a strong chain in the local industry.
In March this year of 2021, we moved from our old premises to a bigger one in Ledumadumane. The move was intended to expand our capacity in both our farm and food productions and continue to drive to our goal of building the MFK franchise, and through it, create 40,000 jobs in the industry.’’
We have now designed and built a nursery facility which includes a greenhouse infrastructure and a garden eco-system that can produce 200,000 crop and fruit seedlings.
After eight months, we are happy to announce the facility is now ready for production. We have been testing the facility and are confident it is able to meet its production demands.
What had started out as a corporate social responsibility project in the face of COVID19 when local farmers were cut off from their typical supply of seedlings from SA, it has now grown in to a self-sustained venture in its own right with a four-man core team running its operations.
We have now positioned the venture to meet the needs of the urban crop farmer who has setup farms in and around Gaborone intending to grow and supply vegetables ranging from beetroot, green peppers, tomatoes, garlic, chilli, swiss chard and spinach in summer and cabbage, cauliflower, lettuce, brocolli and herbs, in winter for the local market.
