In this week’s episode of Farmer’s Inside Track agricultural podcast we’re connecting with not just one, but two dynamic farmers – Taetso Tsebogo and Mahlahlo Thibela – in our movers and shakers segment.

These two, 23 and 21 years old, own a poultry and spinach enterprise in a small village called Ga-Boelang in Mpumalanga.

“We sat down and decided to go into big time farming, even though we face big challenges,” they say. “As young people we are driven by the burning desire to achieve many things, but ours is to become financially independent, as well as to decapitate the poverty line in our country and curb the unemployment rate.”

“The secret to a successful business partnership is consistency and hard work,” they share.
