J.T. Ranching Company
J.T. Ranching Company (JTRC) owns the Wami River Ranch, a 2,000-hectare property situated 150km north-west of Dar es Salaam, the commercial capital of Tanzania. The farm comprises rolling hills with fertile valleys and is bounded on the south by 7 km of the large perennial Wami River. The land had never been formally cultivated before (it is virgin bush), however in the two years prior to JTRC achieving the title, the property experienced severe overgrazing from nomadic herders. JTRC has gone a long way to reversing this damage over the past 3 years.
On Wami River Ranch, JTRC is creating an Integrated System of farming that aims to cut inputs drastically while improving yields in a sustainable and environmentally positive manner. We are developing unique and innovative solutions to apply to every aspect of the Wami River Ranch, with the aim of becoming an “Anchor” in their rural community and helping smallholder village farmers improve both their incomes and their farming methods.
