On the third day of the best farmers’ visit, they were divided into two groups: one group visited a dairy farm and the other a horticulture field.

Their first stop was at Bejo Seeds Company where they learnt seed cleaning and sales processes, from initial production to the final customer.

The farmers also visited an apple farm which sits on 15 acres. At this farm, the owner harvests 40 tons of apples and only employs six workers during harvesting season.

From the apple farm, they visited a farmer growing cabbages, cauliflower and onions. The farmers were amazed by how cabbages were preversed. After harvesting cabbages, they are kept in a cooling facility for up to six months, preventing spoilage and ensuring their long-lasting freshness.

The Best Farmer competition is organized by Vision Group and sponsored by the Netherlands embassy in Uganda, dfcu Bank, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and Koudijs BV.
