At Kingshay…sidai

This week Kingshay hosted international visitors from Kenya. Dr Christie Peacock & Dr Odede from Sidai, Africa Ltd, came to Bridge Farm to find out more about our business and how we develop and disseminate best practice to farmers. Sidai are a pioneering company in Kenya providing 200,000 farmers with access to quality products and the knowledge to use them effectively and farm successfully. Dr Peacock, who was CEO of Farm Africa, set up the socially motivated, commercial enterprise with grant funding from The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to realise her vision for sustainable agriculture in Africa.

Labour: Employed vs Contract Farming Note

Sourcing and maintaining high-quality staff is key to making a farming business run smoothly. However, there are several recruitment routes and trying to decide which works best for your farm can be a daunting task. There are also some major differences in legal responsibilities, depending on whether you employ or contract staff. This Farming Note explores the options and implications.

With the farm team in mind, are you, the family and your staff getting the most from your Kingshay Membership? How many of the farm team get a chance to read the bi-monthly mailings? Newsletters, Farming Notes and Checklists all make great lunchtime reading, so why not leave them in the lunch room for everyone to read, before filing away as a library resource.
