LISTEN: Hot new podcast episode for farmers, agripreneurs

From agribusiness tips, to farmer inspiration and the latest fruit & veggie market prices, Farmer's Inside Track has it all

-

The latest episode of South Africa’s favourite farmers’ podcast has just been released. From the hottest agribusiness tips to inspiration from often unexpected corners of the country, the Farmer’s Inside Track podcast is on fire. Here’s what you can look forward to:

First, some agribusiness tips…

Bertie Hamman, senior manager: agribusiness at Standard Bank, sheds some light on the crucial difference between cash flow and profit. This is of great importance for up-and-coming farmers and agripreneurs who are ready to level up in their agri-game. Together, we discuss the risks if either one of the two is unduly emphasised at the expense of the other.

And then some inspiration, straight from the land…

Wanna get to know the people who produce the food that you eat? This week we are catching up with a North West farmer, Neo Leburu.

For her, it all started a decade ago when she quit her job to follow her dream of goat farming. Of course, many people thought she was make the worst move of her life, but instead of listening to the naysayers, Leburu pursued her dream and her farming business is a roaring success.

And then we are also proud to announce that Gauteng livestock farmer Keatlegile Mnguni is also on the line-up. She is making waves as the youth chairperson of Afasa. Not many people know that she actually qualified in food and beverage management from the Cape Peninsula University of Technology and also owns a catering business called Nouri catering and décor.

As always, we also empower you…

Fruit and vegetable farmers will be pleased to know that Dr Johnny van der Merwe has got them covered with the latest AMT Fresh Produce Outlook.

The dynamic agricultural economist discusses the latest price movements and expectations, making it so much easier for farmers who want to make clever business moves. All the deets are on the podcast, but he warns of lower demand expectations for the next two weeks. However, if you farm with potatoes and onions, there’s some good news for you…

Lastly, we’ve got all the latest info about next week’s Fresh Connections: Southern Africa virtual conference. Farmer’s Inside Track listeners and Food For Mzansi readers must remember that, for the first time in a decade, registration is absolutely free.
