The Event

AgriGroomers has secured three based farms with an aim of developing successful commercial agribusinesses. With agriculture being one of the pillars of the economy of South Africa and a growing economy, a lot of people are now considering it as one of the best investment and business opportunities. However, a number of constraints are still hindering the majority to venture into agriculture. Farmers do not qualify for traditional production credit due to not having sufficient collateral in the form of agricultural land. And if they are considered for credit, the interest rate offered is increased due to the increased risk the farmer poses to the financier. The high costs of farming methods that are said to the best way of farming are too high for an average individual to start a farming venture. Furthermore, the ownership of agricultural land in South Africa is currently a contentious issue.


To address these challenges, AgriGroomers is hosting its 2nd Annual Conference in Richmond,KZN, South Africa, on the 28th September 2019. This conference will focus on presenting a solution on how you can own a successful farm business without having to buy land, machinery, and farm infrastructure.


The conference will gather Investors, Funders, Farmers students, graduates, government officials, academics, high-level stakeholders, as well as agribusiness owners to tackle the problems through practical agribusiness investment opportunities and funding opportunities. Furthermore, it will create a cohesive platform for youth farm placement, job and Agribusiness business creation in SA.
