We are a chicken farm that specialises in reering organic chicken...I also mentor and train over 100 small emerging poultry farmers to start their projects and supply them with all they need ..
I have started my venture out in a informal settlement in the Western Cape and sold my first chickens out of the boot of my car driving around in the informal settlement . By 2018 by project grew to such an extend that i had to employ 10 woman selling chicken at live stands in the settlement with 3 permanent workers on the farm..

What has been your biggest hurdle?
Excess to land .. i have applied for Agricultural land to lease in 2018 and my project has grown rapidly and i needed to exspand to meet demand,but i was declined
Since this is my bread and butter i had to lease private land which is costing an arm and a leg
