Buhle Farmers' Academy

Buhle is a non-profit organisation that was established in the year 2000 to train and mentor new and developing farmers from across South Africa, enabling them to run their own profitable and sustainable farming businesses.

Buhle presents a solution for those new farmers who have access to land, but not the skills and experience they need to farm it.
