On its inception, the farm received funding from DARD for the construction of three hydroponic tunnels for vegetable production; unfortunately in 2011 the farm was hit by a storm which damaged all three tunnels. The ADA intervened to assist the farm with 15 new fully equipped hydroponic tunnels, purchase of production inputs and equipment including grading machine with a washer, a sorter and a dryer. The intervention from ADA has enabled the business to grow and reestablish the production of vegetables from the tunnel structures and also more job opportunities have been created.
