I live here together with my wife and my two children. As a little boy I already dreamt of being a farmer, but in the days of apartheid that was unthinkable for someone with my skin colour. My father was a truck driver at Lushof then and my mother helped packing tomatoes. As a toddler I used to play with the children of the white owner, that was normal. But when we got older, the apartheid system separated us. Because farming wasn't allowed, I went to study commerce, and developed myself. Only when my father died, did I meet my former playmate again. We had a good conversation and I told him agriculture had always been my passion. He then decided to give me a chance and appointed me as a farm manager at Lushof. So I came to follow my vocation. I love working with the soil and hope everyone will enjoy our healthy and tasty fruits. I think soil is just a blessing for us. We must treat it with compassion and look after the earth. Because if we look after the earth, she will look after us. She has been doing so for generations!"
