Small-scale farming matters

Small-scale farming is the heartbeat of sustainable agriculture, and here’s why it truly matters. Amidst the challenges of modern food production, small-scale farming holds the key to preserving biodiversity, promoting local economies, and ensuring food security. These dedicated farmers cultivate their land with care, using traditional methods that prioritize soil health, crop diversity, and ecological balance.

Small-scale farming fosters community connections, as farmers engage directly with consumers, offering fresh, nutritious produce and building trust. By embracing organic practices and avoiding harmful chemicals, small-scale farmers prioritize the health of both people and the environment. Their farms become living laboratories for innovation and experimentation, showcasing alternative and regenerative agricultural models.

Small-scale farming preserves cultural heritage, empowering farmers to pass down traditional knowledge and practices from one generation to the next. It allows for personalized attention to each crop and animal, fostering a deeper understanding and respect for nature’s cycles.

Supporting small-scale farming means investing in sustainable, resilient food systems that nourish both people and the planet. Together, let’s celebrate and champion the invaluable contributions of small-scale farmers.

AgricultSURE on Niche Farmers

AgricultSURE, a South African small-scale farmer developer, joined forces with Laeveld Agrochem for the popular televised Niche Farmers series. Airing since August 2022, the series showcases local up-and-coming farmers using innovative methods for food production. It features diverse farming enterprises, from hydroponic rooftops to greenhouses, highlighting the entrepreneurial spirit of South African farmers.

AgricultSURE and Laeveld Agrochem hope that Niche Farmers will inspire others to start their agri-businesses, promoting a wide range of food production opportunities for universal food security in the country and region. The series also emphasizes the significance of commercial farming and creating jobs in the agricultural industry. AgricultSURE collaborates with small-scale farmers and community gardening projects to implement sustainable projects across the region.
