The Village Nut Company: Cultivating Young Agricultural Entrepreneurs in #Kenya
Annual macadamia harvest is now underway in Kenya. The Village Nut Company’s hilltop factory in Nyeri County is buzzing with activity. As farmers deliver their crop and employees carefully sort the finest nuts.
Muhara siblings are busy mentoring the next generation of agricultural entrepreneurs. This is where the cows used to graze,” explained Mary Muhara as she stood in the middle of their state-of-the-art facility that processes high-quality macadamia nuts for international markets.

The Company is next to the house where Mary and her siblings—Johnson, Maina, and Ann—grew up. The buildings are surrounded by well-manicured gardens and shaded by the Macadamia trees planted decades ago by their father, who sits at the factory gate and observe comings and goings of delivery trucks. https://t.co/HqB8RWrQP6
