An American firm Cade Creek International is set to start a $25m farm in Ifon Orolu Local Council Area of Osun State.
The farm is in partnership with a non-governmental body, Youth Off The Streets Initiatives (YOTSI).
This was revealed by the Chief Executive Officer of Case Creek International, Patrick Alley recently during the presentation of Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the project.
Alley noted that the farm would create 6, 000 direct jobs once it becomes fully operational.
According to Alley, he has come to Africa to help provide jobs and add value to the living of many people.
He revealed that irrigation specialists would be brought from the US for the project.
Speaking also, the President of YOTSI, Kennedy Nyere said “The farm has taken off since May.
“A team visited the site of the farm and conducted a soil test and our soil experts certified the soil good for farming.
“The community is friendly, $25m will be invested by an American investor. The community is giving the group the land to farm. Resources will come from [the] US and our group.”
