How Much Can I Make From Growing Moringa?
You can make a living selling moringa at the farmers market, known as a face-to-face sale under the cottage rule industry labeling practices.
The amount you can make is determined by the weight your trees produce.
The best way to make money from moringa is by selling the young trees or seedlings and also the seeds, then the oil.
Next, as your trees get bigger, sell the fresh leaves. Then, sell the dried leaves. Use a certified drying facility for safety. The least amount of processing the better. Selling powder and capsules requires more certifications.
Selling Moringa for Human Consumption Requires More Certifications.
Sell moringa as an animal food or as a plant food to maximize your barrier to entry into the moringa tree industry. That's why we have BioStimulant.
The amount of money you can make depends on 2 things. If you are doing some of the work, or if you have members doing all the work for you.
On average you can earn about $10/kg of dried material. Then up to $30/kg if you are doing all the steps at a certified facility.
Harvest trees yourself or hire a member to harvest for you. Then Schedule a Pick-up, either fresh greens pick-up or dried greens-pickup available.
Schedule Harvest, with a 'Blue Tree' Member on the Moringa Map.
You can make as much money as you can on your own earnings.

How Many Moringa Trees Can I Grow On an Acre?
If you're wanting to grown full size moringa trees you can get about 200 to 300 per acre if you plant them in staggered rows 10 to 15 feet apart.
Here is a video explaining how to do the orchard style planting on a acre.
If you are looking to do a more intense operation you can get tens of thousands of trees on an acre if you plant an intensive bed to get more bio mass.
Here is a video explaining how to plant an intensive bed to get 100,000 moringa plants on one acre.
How Big Will My Moringa Get?
The moringa tree can reach 30ft tall. In the first couple of years it's good practice to keep your moringa trees shorter and bushy until it can hold the weight of the drumsticks and produce more of them. In the first two years it's good to trim them back and pop all the flowers off.
Here is a video about why and how to keep your moringa trees bushy.
I Live in a Cold Climate, Can I Still Grow Moringa Trees?
Moringa is a Tropical/Subtropical tree. In zones below 8b it will be difficult to keep your trees alive during winter. With that said, most areas will be able to grow moringa as a summer annual. At the end of the summer season pull out your short bushy trees and you'll have tubers you can sell or save for the next year.
