What is Foundations For Farming?
Foundations for Farming (FFF) is a simple, low cost conservation farming method specifically designed to help smallholder farmers make a profit and improve their lives. The method was developed in Zimbabwe over the last 30 years by Brian Oldrieve and Craig Deall, faith-driven Zimbabwean farmers. In recent years, FfF programs have been introduced in countries across Africa as a means of reducing hunger, poverty and dependency.
