Our story

El- Shaddai farms Limited is a product of an endeavour to feed nations through a sustainable growth model of Agriculture in partnership with Songhai regional center voted as center of excellence for Agriculture in Africa by the United Nations in 2006, Porto Novo.

The organization believes the challenges of food security and poverty will be surmounted by harnessing our biological capital. It is the objectives of our organization to increase productivity while protecting and enhancing our environment through the concept of sustainable development.

The conventional agricultural model of struggle and survival through chemical process is to be substituted with a regenerative agriculture system that promotes the real “greening of Agriculture”. This approach will draw natures contribution to crop and animal growth.

Sustainable leapfrogging technology and development will be applied to produce commercial opportunities to address youth, women unemployment and environmental problems in both rural and urban areas. ‘When we change the way we grow our food we change ourselves. We change our values. We change our society.’ This model of agriculture will ensure the practice of Zero Emission Research Initiative (ZERI) where nothing is wasted for the benefit of healthy environment and living.

El-shaddai intergrated model intends to contribute in achieving the Zero Hunger goal of the United Nations’ SDGs by partnering  with its agencies (IFAD, UNIDO, FAO and ILO).

The implementation of the farm project is in progress in Ifewara Osun State according to Masterplan.
