As part of its efforts to promote and create purpose-driven development projects that promote sustainability, ethical development practices, and a better business model, Howard Group entered the arena of sustainable farming.
With organic food crops and other products, this type of agriculture not only takes care of the land but also creates jobs and provides an important resource to the community.
Green Arrow Fields (GAF) is Howard Group’s first certified organic farm focusing on wildlife management, land management, and sustainable farming practices. GAF is an exercise in conservation. The farm grows Bahia seed/grass, sunflower fields, fruits, vegetables, and food crops for feeding wildlife in the area. In addition, the farm supports several animals at the property, including deer, goats, chickens, and turkeys. There is also a thriving honeybee colony at GAF that produces honey and helps pollinate the crops.
