We have found a nice place for our farm. On a property close to the city we have been able to initiate our project and started to construct the farm.
Today we have been in Benin to visit another farm of the black soldier fly.
On the 23th of March our two Insectus members Teika and Felix went with our local entrepreneur Fabio from Lomé, Togo to Abomey, Benin. Our purpose of the trip was to pick up the Black solider Fly (BSF) larvae. After 4 hours-ride we arrived at a small village near to Abomey, which is located in the neighbor-country Benin. The two farmers welcomed us at their own farm to share their experiences with us. Furthermore, we received the larvae for our coming Farm in Lomé.
We got many information of the conditions for running a farm in West Africa.
Thanks to the farmers for the kind welcome!
