Farming for the future
“We believe combining nature and agriculture is the solution to regenerate natural resources, enabling us to pass on true capital to future generations.”
In agroforestry systems, trees, shrubs, annual crops and possibly animals are intentionally combined in order to create a self-supporting system that can produce a wide range of produce from human staple food crops, fruits, vegetables, to diverse animal products, feed, industrial raw materials; fibre, oil, timber and more, depending on purpose and scale.
The Forest Farmers offer regenerative agroforestry design, project development and implementation. We work goal oriented and make it happen.
We deliver a total design that is ready for implementation. This includes defining our client's goal, analyzing location factors, defining functions and elements, selecting the right species for production and biodiversity, sketching, drawing and presenting the final design.
We support and develop projects from the beginning to the successful completion. This includes topics such as land acquisition, business model development, market analysis, intergenerational agricultural development, international projects and more are also possible.
Once the design has been completed, we ensure a successful implementation. This includes the purchase of high-quality plant material and equipment, time and labour management, instructions, quality control and process monitoring.
