Thumbs up to MOA. We have verbal agreement with the officers that we will be contacting each other actively from now onwards. We will be called to each seminars/talks conducted in the future.
We will be the next entreprenuers! Thank you MOA for supporting us.

Welcome to Grande Farm Site

Grande Farm - Used to be Agroprime. The change in the name is due to the latter being too common for a name.
With the new name and the new image, I hope to be able to update this blogsite every day.
With the new batch of oyster mushrooms coming out in early June, I definitely hope that this site serves as a medium of communication between my fellow modern farming networkers.
Good day from the host,
Veronica Rebecca Sebastian
