Commerical Chuta Plantation


Tomkesa Holding, private company



Tomkesa Holding is a private farm, owned by a German-born farmer and his Kenyan wife. In 2015 they decided to invest in 15 ha of edible Jatropha (ProteinFeed) to a) produce vegetable oil for the local market and b) utilize the remaining press cake as high-quality protein feed for their chicken farm. The seedlings are already in nursery phase and the soil preparation is taking place in parallel in order to provide adequate conditions for growth and development of the seedling.
