In an exciting twist to our Farmer’s Inside Track podcast, we are joined this week by agri duo, Conce Moraba and Karabo Mabuza, who tell us why they are on a mission to inspire agricultural business and Mzansi.
These two energetic agricultural economists are making waves on YouTube with their channel Food for Thought with Karabo and Conce, which has featured key players in agriculture.
In the podcast episode, listeners can hear Mabuza unpack how they began their agricultural blogging journey. She explains that their channel is all about showing off the beauty of agriculture and making agri information more readily available to farmers and their communities.
“When people think about agriculture, normally, they’ll just think about it only at a primary level or farming level. But it does not actually end there,” Mabuza points out.
Bridging the gap
Most importantly, the duo wants to show and expose people who do not have access to information.
“Whether you are in a remote area or whether you are in business, a student, or an emerging farmer, we wanted to bridge that gap,” Moraba explains.
Food for Thought features some of the industry’s most prominent figures who help them dissect current events, Moraba adds.
Both are seasoned agricultural economists who are doing impressive work in their respective fields. “When we started this YouTube channel, for us it [was to show that we love what we do in agriculture].
Although video blogging is still a hobby the agri duo would love to see the impact it could have on the next generation.
“That’s what keeps us going, knowing that we’re not just doing this for ourselves, but we’re doing it for people who are really interested,” says Moraba.
In the podcast, the duo also touch on:
- How important technology is to agriculture;
- Food inflation; and more
