Set against the raging land debate, For the Love of the Land: Being a Farmer in South Africa Today introduces South Africans to the unsung heroes of the agricultural industry.

A diverse crop of farmers from across the country share heartwarming stories from the farms and agri-businesses that feed South Africa.

The book focuses on the power of land to promote nation-building and social cohesion by telling stories that are often overlooked by broader society.

“A much ­needed account of our farmers’ commitment to the earth and South Africa, truly saluting the unsung heroes of agriculture.” – Nick Serfontein, Free State Farmer of the Year 2016

“Set against the backdrop of our heated land reform debate, this book proves that farming is often a labour of love.” – Gloria Serobe, founder and CEO of Women Investment Portfolio Holdings
