The UAI is a clustered farming operation with both horizontal and vertical aggregation. Cluster farming is the coming together of agricultural growers in an area to form a cluster so as to synergistically enjoy one economic benefit or collectively share a burden.

Benefits of farming clusters are:

  • sharing in recent and expensive research and agri¬≠cultural technology;
  • access to cheap farming inputs;
  • marketing and distribution chain; and
  • extension business support services.

The UAI seeks to develop several specialised products and multiple product farming operations utilising several key agricultural technologies and inner-city spaces, with a commitment to local food systems, community development and employment creation.
