Ronald 

Harvest Supervisor

As the story goes, its not the departure from port, but the return home that determines the success of a voyage. Having worked for over 9 years in agricultural industry and achieved less than my expectation in Kenya, this is my second season At AS Green, and in my first season,  2022, I managed to buy the above piece of land which I couldn't have afforded in Kenya even after working for over 10 years.  This year, 2023, I managed to start my construction and its been managed by my wife, the building is inspiring and a hope to my kids. I planted white maize and got a good harvest. From the harvest,  I can feed my family the whole year and sell the surplus. The field is currently covered with dry beans, our main source of food. I can admit that not only did I achieve more financially, but I also learned more in terms of crop production and all the process involved. Its been a dream come true within a short period and wish to work with AS Green again and again. I would also wish to recommend anyone wishing to work in a busy, conducive and learning environment to consider working with AS Green.

Thanks and may God bless AS Green.

Where It All Started

I am Jacob,

I joined the fresh produce industry as a tractor driver and harvest supervisor. To me, it has been a successful journey as I have worked and learned may things around agriculture.

I was born and raised in a Tea Estate. My mother struggled to raise me and my siblings, she worked hard until her retirement,  but couldn't afford a land or a house. She was forced to stay in a rented house.

I came to the United Kingdom last year,  bought a piece of land and started a construction.  This is now our home. She is the happiest mother, having secured a place to call home gives her new life and new inspiration. We don't pay rent anymore and from the land we have daily vegetables and everything we need.  

I am planning to start a dairy farm in my homeland.

I will always be grateful to work at AS Green.

My name is Peter,

I was raised by my mother after my father passed away.

Life has never been easy,  starting to work at a younger age;

I have worked as a driver for over 25 years,  struggling to feed and educate my children.

A call came at the right time, when I was at my lowest point. I started the construction of my house last year and it has been a blessing for my family.

It has reduced the burden of paying rent,  and enabled me farm vegetables and goats for family use.

I have learnt more in terms of machines and I am not the same person who came to AS Green last year.

I am trying to construct a few flats for income generation from the end of this year.

I thank Mr. Green for the invitation and great support at work.
