Founded in 1977, Beerta AbusitA is one of the oldest agricultural businesses in Somaliland. The farm has undergone several changes over the years. In the 1970s, the farm had hundreds of workers and delivered substantial quantities of fruit and vegetables to several markets. The farm has a total of 100 hectares and is located close to the large valley that runs through the centre of Hargeisa. After the Somali Civil War, most of the infrastructure was destroyed, and the farm uses today only 5% of available land. Somadvice has been contracted to upscale, professionalise and mechanize the entire farm.
