Finca Verde Ltd.
Finca Verde is located in Mukono District, about an hour East of the capital city, Kampala. The farm is approximately 23 acres of good agricultural land, with 4 acres currently in use, has a good water source and reasonably good access roads.
The farm’s location is also convenient, as it serves the central region and its surroundings.
Founded in June 2014 by proprietors; Hans and Edna Barendse, the farm aimed to produce and meet the growing demands for quality exotic lettuces and vegetables for a very large dissatisfied growing market. Initially it focused only on lettuce, but Hans and Edna soon realized that consistent supply of the local vegetables was lacking and expanded their production.
The farm started producing different varieties of Lettuce (Lollo rosso, Lollo bionda, butter head, oak leaf etc.), Cresses (water cress, garden cress, broccoli cress, red cabbage cress etc.) Vegetables (e.g. kale, spinach, radishes, cucumber, French beans) and herbs (basil, parsley, coriander, chives, mint, thyme etc.) to satisfy the large market demand
