Smallholder farmers are at the heart of our business model
We support and source from more than 100 smallholder families, based in Butajira, our flagship site in Ethiopia. GreenPath has accelerated its growth since 2017 and looks forward to working from other Ethiopian and East African sites soon.
Wherever we work, we believe that smallholder farms can and should work better for farmers, for the environment, and for our global food systems.
