Title: For the love of the land – being a farmer in South Africa today
Author: Ivor Price and Kobus Louwrens 
Publisher: Tafelberg 
ISBN: 9780624088998

Away from the heated political debates, in the shadow of uncertainty and shifting policies, farmers are putting seeds into earth in what seem like forgotten parts of the country.

Who are they?

For the love of the land introduces South Africans to the heroes of agriculture. A diverse crop of farmers from across the country share complex, layered stories about heritage and land, at times surviving traumas like land dispossession and forced labour and the more current spectre of violent farm crimes. From the small farms to the agri-businesses who feed South Africa against the odds, this book relays the power of land to heal, by telling stories that are often overlooked.

Kommentaar

  • Baie tydig. My seun (30) onlangs besoek. Plaas (mediumgrootte) laasjaar by skoonpa oorgeneem. Nog lank nie afbetaal nie. Boer saam met sy swaertjie in Bethlehem se wereld. Melkkwotas en droogtes kry hulle nie onder nie. Bou stelselmatig 'n span op wat saam met hulle die plaas vorentoe kan vat. Harde, fisiese werk, daagliks groot besluite, strategies dink. Boer is nie vir sissies nie maar boer kom sit in jou lyf en los jou nie. Gaan mooi Kersgeskenk maak. Geniet hulle TV program.
