DON BOSCO EMBU FARM (BRO. UMBERTO MEMORIAL FARM)
The Late Bro Umberto Rizzetto SDB
Don Bosco Embu Farm was set up by the late Bro. Umberto Rizzetto SDB. From the beginning of Don Bosco Embu in 1984 until his death in 2017, Bro. Umberto worked hard to make Don Bosco Embu self-sufficient in food. Bro. Umberto was a manager in the office but he did manual work in the farm. With the help of several benefactors, the farm is well equipped with farm equipment and tools.
The farm has both agriculture and animal departments.We grow vegetables like cabbages, tomatoes, spinach and Sukuma wiki for our own consumption andfor sale. An agricultural project with Israeli Technology known as AITECH Embu will be fully functioning
in the near future. We are very grateful to Cultivaid, Water 4 Mercy, DBTECH Africa and the Israeli Embassy of Kenya for this new venture. This project also involves the Embu County.
The animal husbandry has cows, pigs, rabbits and layer chickens. We hope to sell eggs by the end of October 2022 and sell pigs too by the end of October 2022.
With the help of the Sterling Trust of Mzee Jasani we managed to boost our farm with cows and chickens. The Sterling Trust has supported us to purchase feed for the animals as well. Of late we have begun the Cat Fish farming too!
