Young farmer from Limpopo expands her business

BY Nkosazana Ngwadla

Salome Mosima is a 33-year-old entrepreneur from Vaalwater, Limpopo. Sha self-taught farmer who didn’t study agriculture in school. She started her small-scale mixed farming at her father’s plot.

Salome now has cattle, goats, and grows broilers from day-old chicks until they are fully grown. She also grows vegetables like spinach, onions, beetroot, and tomatoes, and sells them to her community.

“I always had a passion for agriculture at a young age. I wish to become a commercial farmer one day. I am working towards this goal. I’d would like to encourage each and every young person who has a passion for farming to start as soon as possible and to start with whatever they have, rather than waiting for the government to fund them,” she said.

“I am selling spinach for R20 a bunch, chickens go for R85 each, beetroot tomatoes and onions will be ready by next month,” she added.

To contact Salome, call 079 724 1314 for orders.

“Your support will be highly appreciated,” Salome concluded.
