Just when you thought that farming is a boring occupation, meant only for old, retired men on their pension who cannot afford a coffee at a high end-restaurant, along comes Caleb Karuga to debunk that myth. Careb, the 35-year-old CEO and founder of Wendy Farms, breeds and sells indigenous chicken, rears dairy animals and grows vegetables from his home base in Nairobi, Kenya.
