What we will do. 1. Our journey starts at Nairobi cbd, where I meet my guest. 2. The distance from the cbd to our destination(githunguri, Kiambu) is about 31 miles or 45 minutes drive. 3. We get to our family farm which specializes with dairy farming although chicken rearing is also another basic field in our farm. 4. My brother manages the farm. He will take you through the process of feeding and all what is needed to keep the animals safe and healthy. He will also take you through the best way to handle the animals. It is an art he has mastered in. 5. Chicken rearing is another activity which is done in our farm but seasonal due to market change in our country, so you may be lucky to find them. 6.learning dairy farming is a simple but important experience to learn especially our way. We do a zero grazing method of dairy farming since it is convenient for small scale farmers and does not need huge parcel of land. Its quite an interesting experience since you will learn alot. The experience ends with a visit at the milk processing factory (optional visit). And the we head back to Nairobi
Having been brought up in a rural set-up, farming was the main activity. Dairy farming was the major activity in our family. Even after moving to Urban for my teaching career, farming still remain my big passion, which I still practise in our family farm till date. I have majored in dairy farming precisely zero grazing.
Tea(optional) but a glass of milk is provided to each guest.
I will provide transportation to and fro the experience
The experience only takes place at the perimeter of our farm which is approximately 3/4 acre. The main places to visit is the animal areas.
I refer my experience as an educational trip since my guests will learn that dairy farming can be done in a simple way and used also as a daily source of income.
