Halfash Integrated Farms Limited is an agricultural company using modern farming techniques and equipment to produce enough quality food for consumption. Founded in 2016, the company has several farms which include Greenhouse farm and Open field farm spread across three states in the North-Central and North-West part of Nigeria. Actual farming commenced in 2017, with the production of vegetable crops (tomato, pepper, cucumbers, Ugwu leaves etc.), maize and also catfish production. We also facilitate distribution of farm products, goods and services to our customers across the country. One of the company’s objectives is to direct the ability of passionate youths and farmers into commercial agriculture as a process to solving unemployment, increase food productions and also improve the standard of living of citizens.
As of January 2018, we began the process of incorporating technology into the operations of our company and we created Farmstack, an agricultural distribution firm which is a subordinate and independent part of the Halfash Integrated Farms Limited. We created this branch to improve the agricultural sector chain from production of food, storage and distribution of food by bringing farmers, investors and customers under one umbrella.

One of his objectives is to help create a society with zero hunger, improve standard of living of citizens and create job opportunities for unemployed youths and graduates through Agriculture.
