Users Farm is a licensed agro–allied company that is to be based in the outskirt of Port Harcourt, Rivers state Nigeria. We have played a crucial part in doing our detailed market research and feasibility studies and we were able to secure a fifteen plots of land to start our commercial farming.
Our commercial farming is going to be a standard commercial farm , hence will be involved in commercial crop cultivation, fish farming, poultry farming and of course animal farming. We will be involved in both organic commercial farming and non–organic commercial farming.
In the nearest future, hopefully within the first five years of officially running Users Farm, we will commence our food processing plant and also start exporting our agriculture produce to other parts of the world. This is why aside from the fact that we’ve secured the required farming land and most of the farming equipment and machines; we have also hired some key employees who are currently undergoing training so as to be able to fit into the ideal picture of the 21st century commercial farm workforce that we want to build.
We are in the agro–allied business because we want to leverage on the vast opportunities available in the industry, to contribute our quota in growing the Nigeria economy, in national food production, raw materials production for industries, to export agriculture produce from Nigeria to other countries and over and above to make profit.
Users Farm is well positioned to become one of the leading commercial farms in Nigeria, which is why we have been able to source for the best hands and machines to run the company with. We have put process and strategies in place that will help us employ best practices when it comes to commercial farming processes and food processing as required by the regulating bodies in Nigeria.

- Market Trends
One of the common trends in the commercial farming line of business is that most players in the industry are no longer concentrating only on non–organic farming. They now find it easier to run both organic crop cultivation and non–organic crop cultivation. It is fact that despite that organic food are expensive, the sale for organic food is on the increase and it is indeed profitable.
Despite the fact that commercial farming has been in existence since time immemorial that does not in any way make the industry to be over saturated; commercial farmers are exploring new technologies to continue to improve cultivation processes and also food preservation process; mechanized farming has indeed increased the tons of food produced by farmers. The fact that there is always a ready market for commercial farming produce makes the business ever green.
As a matter of fact, one of the new trends is that with the recent advancement in technology, farmers are now growing crops in commercial quantities in a country where such crops can hardly survive and in places where there are few farming land, commercial farmers now make use of the rooftop (basement) of their houses to cultivate crops even for commercial purposes.
- Our Target Market
Naturally, the target market of those who are the end consumer of commercial farm produce and also those who benefit from the business value chain of the agriculture industry is all encompassing; it is far–reaching.
Every household consumes produce from commercial farms be it vegetables, fruits, grains, tubers, fish, eggs, poultries, and cattle et al. So also a large chunk of manufacturing companies depends on commercial farms for some of their raw materials. In essence, a commercial farmer should be able to sell his or her farm produce to as many people as possible.
We will ensure that we position our business to attract consumers of agriculture produce not just in Nigeria alone but also other parts of the world which is why we will be exporting some of our farm produce either in raw form or processed form to other countries of the world.
