Al Nur Somali Farming

Al Nur Mixed Farming

Al Nur Mixed Farming (“Al Nur”), established in 2005, is located in the fertile Jibgale Valley, outside of Garowe, Puntland. The farm produces nearly 15 types of cash crops year-round and has a supplementary small-scale dairy operation. It is situated on 6.5 hectares of land; however, only 45% of the land was being cultivated due to limited irrigation capacity. The irrigation system relied on an inefficient generator, which consumed costly fuel.

Al Nur received financing to install a gravity fed irrigation system that includes a modern and efficient generator and pump. The irrigation system has allowed the farm to fully utilize its land and increase its production capacity. Investment proceeds were also used to procure a grass-cutting machine to reap fodder more efficiently for its nearly 30 dairy cows.
