Jane McPherson

“I have a passion for unity in agriculture in South Africa and an innate sense of abundance. There is enough land for all of us. We’re all only borrowing it, so we have to look after it and help people to use whatever land they have access to so that they have more today than they had yesterday. Invest in a farmer as a person and, if you’re successful, soon they won’t need you anymore.”

Jane McPherson is co-ordinator of Grain SA’s impressive farmer development programme, which helps thousands of farmers to contribute to household and national food security.
