Hobby Farms Poultry Farm Unit

The Gambia offers the ideal environment for rearing poultry for meat in terms of grazing land, climate, know-how and available skills

The Gambia is heavily reliant on poultry imports, which increased by more than US$380,000 in value between 2010-11

This ideal environment is bolstered by political support – and an established target – to increase the supply of livestock products to the tourism sector by 35% by 2019
