WE ARE AGRICULTURE ENTHUSIASTS
We believe agriculture is one of the most underrated activities. Given the challenges the planet faces, agriculture and how it fits into nature, should get much more attention. As we are entrepreneurs and enthusiasts in food and agriculture ourselves, we encourage entrepreneurs, farmers, and everybody who is interested to engage actively and reach out to us.
We formed this association because we see sustainable agriculture globally just at the beginning, having great future potential.
