What is Pfumvudza?  

84% of the world’s 608 million farms are smallholdings; that is, farms less than two hectares in size. Tragically, many small-scale farmers do not even produce enough food for themselves. They are among the poorest people in the world.


Pfumvudza was developed to answer the following question. “How much land is required to feed a family”? Using all the Foundations for Farming principles and assuming that a family would require a bucket of maize per week to provide their staple diet, the following model was developed. 

We work with small-scale farmers and help train them to adopt simple, manageable, applicable, long-lasting (SMALL) soil conservation practices that result in high yields.
