About NASFAM

The National Smallholder Farmers' Association of Malawi (NASFAM) is the largest smallholder owned membership organisation in Malawi. It is founded on the principles of collective action and is democratically governed by its members.

Funded by the US Government, the NASFAM concept was set up in 1995 to support and organise smallholder tobacco production. Since that time, the NASFAM focus has diversified to production of other cash and food crops. NASFAM, as it is now, was legally registered under the Trustees Incorporation Act in February 1998.
