Gifts that give back

As Black Friday and the season of indulgence looms, this festive period why not purchase gifts for loved ones which also give back to Farm Africa?

Farm Africa is fortunate to be supported by a number of businesses who donate towards our work in eastern Africa for each of their products sold. If you’re in need of some gift or stocking filler inspiration then look no further!

Every purchase helps to support smallholder farmers across our projects, whether they are Ugandan chilli growers, Kenyan fish farmers or Ethiopian wild coffee harvesters.

Advent of Change
The unique Advent of Change calendar is available online and in 300 Waitrose & Partners stores across the country – but be quick as last year they sold out! Each day of this alternative advent calendar represents a 50p donation to a different charity, including Farm Africa, and describes how that gift could be used, giving the recipient a ‘feel-good feeling’ every day.

Cullisse
The owner of Cullisse Highland Rapeseed Oil, Robert Mackenzie, was inspired to set up his business after visiting a Farm Africa sunflower project in Kenya in 2006. Once home he began cold-pressing the rapeseed on his family’s Scottish farm to produce a versatile golden yellow oil, ideal for home-cooking. The Cullisse range now includes marinades and chilli oil, and for each litre of rapeseed oil sold Cullisse donates 20p to Farm Africa.

Honeywell Biscuit Co.
The team at Honeywell Biscuit Co. are a group of artisan bakers based in the heart of the Northamptonshire countryside creating beautifully colourful baked treats. The all-female company chose to support Farm Africa in particular because of our pioneering work empowering female entrepreneurs living in rural communities to run thriving businesses. The company donates 2% of the purchase price of each of their products to support Farm Africa, from biscuit advent calendars to bunches of biscuit flowers or even tea and biscuit subscriptions!

Jumping Goat coffee liqueur, Red Red meal pots and Farm Africa's Recipes for Prosperity cookbook

Jumping Goat
New Zealand-based coffee liqueur brand Jumping Goat was inspired to support Farm Africa because of our mutual ties to Ethiopia, coffee and goats! From September 2019 they are donating 10% of gross profits from each bottle sold around the world, guaranteeing a minimum donation of NZD$10,000 which could help cover the costs of more than 300 goats for woman in Ethiopia participating in our Livestock for Livelihoods project. Jumping Goat is launching over in the UK in time for Christmas, so for a different kind of festive tipple do check them out.

RED RED pots
RED RED Super Stews, a range of African-inspired lunch pots created in partnership with Zoe Adjonyoh from Zoe’s Ghana Kitchen, are on sale across the UK. Their funky design would make them delicious stocking fillers (or a healthy lunch in between all the over-indulgence!). Every pot purchased donates 6p to Farm Africa’s sustainable agriculture projects.

Last, but definitely not least,
Farm Africa’s Recipes for Prosperity Cookbook
Hot off the press, Farm Africa's new limited edition #RecipesForProsperity Cookbook is bursting with east African-inspired dishes including Vegetable Cashew Curry, Sweet Potato Cupcakes and Healthy Granola. You can get your hands on one as a thank you for a donation to Farm Africa’s Recipes for Prosperity campaign!
