EDENVILLE FARMING COOPERATIVE

 

A COOPERATIVE WITH GREEN HANDS

 

The Edenville Farming Cooperative operates in the agricultural sector and consists of 8 members based at Edenville, Free State. Their major challenges have been acquiring access to land; the development of a business plan, lack of knowledge of the market and a lack of farming equipment and mentorship. Through Seda’s intervention the cooperative was granted access to 290 hectres of farm land. They managed to produce maize on the land with support from Rietfontein Agri Partners. 750 tons of maize were produced resulting in sales of R2.4 million. Two additional jobs were created.
