Neil Curtis, an Air Rights Broker and Author, grew up spending summers on his families farm in High Gate, St. Catherine.
It is no surprise then, after attending the Biennial Diaspora Conference in 2013 he was inspired to start Farm Up Jamaica.
Farm Up Jamaica, is a non profit organization with two very ambitious goals.1) Decrease Jamaica’s dependence on imported foods and 2) Provide Jamaicans and tourists a healthy organic, food option. And in just two years Farm up Jamaica is doing just that. They are already supporting approximately 50 Farmers, and they have 400+ acres and counting under cultivation. Farm Up Jamaica also establishes markets and contracts for the Farmer’s new Organic produce.
