Urban Ranch

Urban Ranch is an initiative working with local community groups to create quality handicrafts, the sales of which support local people and conservation. Urban Ranch aims to work with local communities living adjacent to wildlife conservancies in Laikipia and further afield to make use of indigenous skills to design, develop and manufacture high quality, innovative handicrafts for sale to local, national and, ultimately, international retail markets.
