    Understanding how my sponsorship works
    Menorah Farms is built to give Farm Sponsors periodic updates; we send bi-weekly updates for farm cycles which are 6 months and less and we can send monthly updates for farm cycles which exceed 6 months. Farm updates are written reports, pictures and videos showing the progress being made at different stages of the farm cycle.
    Depending on the farm you select, the cycle can run from 5 months to 12 months.
    The initial sponsorship and return after harvest will be paid into the account details provided by you on your profile. You can click on 'edit profile' on your dashboard to update your bank details and other information.
    The profit generated at the end of the farm cycle is shared between the Farmer, the Farm sponsor and Menorah Farms based on a pre-determined model unique to that farm cycle. This is done at the end of the stated tenure period for that farm cycle.
    On each farm, we have provided the Profit Simulator for you to be able to calculate your return on investment. You can increase or decrease the number of farms you buy and it will calculate your net profit along with your initial capital.
    The minimum number of farms you can sponsor is one (1) unit of any farm, and you can sponsor as many farms as you so choose but this is subject to the farm availability.
    General farm visits are organised on a periodic basis for existing Farm Sponsors. Notifications are usually sent out to sponsors informing them of the visit and we usually ask them to confirm their availability for the visit. Sponsors may also put in their request for a farm visit, this can be organised as well but subject to certain terms and conditions.
    Yes, you can invite friends from Facebook or any other social media platform to join you on Menorah Farms. Use the invite friends button on each farm page.
    Each of our farms have a fixed farm cycle period. This is determined by taking into cognisance the gestation period required for each farm to go from beginning to the harvest stage. As it is virtually impossible to wilfully interrupt the growth life cycle of any crop or livestock before maturity, we will not be able to 'terminate' the farm cycle of any given farm. However, at the end of the stipulated farm cycle, and the sponsor has received his farm sponsorship and returns after harvest, the decision to re-sponsor another farm or otherwise, is entirely the sponsor's decision.
    Menorah Farms has a team of Agric professionals and technical partners whose primary responsibility is to ensure that our farms follow standard farm management practices whilst employing the most modern farming techniques, improved seedlings and modern farm equipment; to ensure that we have the best farm yields. We however are not ignorant of the peculiarity of the sector in which we operate, therefore we have taken adequate measures by insuring all our farm projects to mitigate against any unforeseen risks that could lead to loss of the sponsor’s capital.
    Menorah Farms has provided insurance cover for all existing farm projects, so that in the event of unforeseen circumstances, the sponsor’s capital can be refunded. The insurance covers only the initial sponsorship capital,it does not cover the return after harvest.
