Young Farmer of the Year.
“Growing up on a farm teaches you about hard work, faith and perseverance.”
At the beginning of this year, I moved back to the farm after 15 years living all over the world. It was a big decision made just in time, since shortly after I arrived back on the farm, the world was turned upside down by the COVID-19 pandemic. I don’t, for one second, regret my decision. Being reunited with wide, open spaces and the quiet nights, it has been a welcome change after the city hussle I lived before in Cape Town.
One of the biggest delights of moving back to the farm, was getting to know the locals and specifically this young farmer in particular. With a heart of gold and values that would put many grown men to shame, this little farmer is living his best childhood possible. Surrounded by animals and nature and family who cherish his every move, this young farmer is growing up learning all the most valuable attributes needed to be an admirable man one day.
