Call for entries for Kwanalu Young Farmer of the Year 2018

It’s that time of year again when we embark on the annual search, from amongst our members, for a farmer to be awarded the prestigious Kwanalu Young Farmer of the year title and to go on to represent the province in the 2018 Toyota SA / Agri-SA National Young Farmer of the Year competition.

The national winner will drive away in a brand-new Toyota Hilux Single Cab vehicle among other great prizes.

“I encourage as many young farmers from KZN to enter the provincial competition, sponsored by Toyota SA. This competition highlights the great skills and entrepreneurial spirit required to be a successful farmer. We know we are blessed with a very high caliber of farmer in our province but this competition is more than just how much a farmer is able to produce or how pretty their farm looks. It’s about sound business acumen and strong agricultural practices among a whole range of other criteria” said Sandy.

Farmers, under the age of 40, whether they are owners or partners in a farm, male or female and who are full members of Kwanalu are eligible for entry. The provincial judging and evaluation of the farmers and their agricultural practices, takes place with the applicants being evaluated on all aspects of their business including their overall vision for the future of their farm/business.

Enter now if you think you have what it takes to walk away with the KZN Kwanalu Young Farmer of the Year title and do us proud at the 2018 Toyota SA / Agri-SA National Young Farmer awards. Entries close on 31 July 2018.
