|The fallow land is ploughed||The seed is sown and weeded||The maize plants emerge|
|Plants growing tall||Cobs on mature plants||Ready for the picking|
|The crop is harvested||Sackloads of Maize cobs||Maize is cooked or milled|
The NLF staff were so encouraged by the success of the Maize crop (biggest crop ever) that they began sowing Chilli plants on 6 acres of land. An electric water pump has been purchased by a New Zealand donor and the crop is well under way. They already have a buyer for the crop once it is harvested.

Along with the Chilli project, NLF has also planted and harvested a large crop of tomatoes
