Happy February, farmers! Today we get to celebrate a grape varietal. Plus, it is the last day to enter for this year’s SA Dairy Championships. Monday nights, of course, are also TV nights for farmers.
Episode 3 of farmers’ TV show
In tonight’s episode of Vir die liefde van die land, our favourite farmers’ television show, viewers get to meet Wessel Bibbey. He actively works to boost the next generation of black farmers through his innovative land reform project.
The ten-episode series, hosted by Ivor Price and farmer mentor Piet Potgieter, is proudly presented by VKB in partnership with Food For Mzansi and WYRD Films. Catch tonight’s episode at 18:30 on VIA, DStv channel 147.

International Furmint Day
No, that’s not a spelling mistake. Furmint is an exciting grape variety. Although it is not that widely known in South Africa, it certainly deserves more attention. Therefore, 1 February has been dedicated to celebrating this important Hungarian grape that has seen limited plantings in Mzansi.
Check out the Facebook page for all manners of Furmint experiences.
