There is Demand if Looking to venture into Strawberry farming in Kenya
There is demand readily available in major urban markets especially among green-grocery suppliers. You can also access a larger market by marketing to companies like Brookside, Trufood, KCC and major supermarket chains. In that case, you will require to invest in good packaging and get accreditation from The Kenya Bureau of Standards.
A quarter (1/4th) piece of land can produce between 60kg and 100kg of strawberries per week and each kilo goes for about Ksh 200 at the current market price. Now assuming your farm produces 75Kgs per week, then that means you can make over Ksh50,000 per month using only a very small portion of your land.
Moreover, you can increase your farm’s productivity by investing in aquaponics through which you can triple the productivity of your farm to make at least Ksh 150,000 per month on just 1/4th of an acre.
It is possible to recover your initial investment of Kshs 50k (or break-even) within just 6 months of starting the farm!
