Local government officials in Sakteng gewog inaugurating their Farm Shop recently coinciding with the birth anniversary of HRH Gyalsey. With the Sakteng farm shop in operation, a total of 100 gewogs now have farm shops. The remaining 105 gewogs will receive their shops in the coming year.
Farm Shops sell goods at FCB rates, bringing down prices drastically in our villages while selling only genuine products. The most popular items are rice, cooking oil, soap and farming implements. However, the real objective of the farm shops is not to sell, but to buy agricultural and husbandry produce from our farmers. This will go a long way in improving rural livelihoods while strengthening food security in the Kingdom.
