For Duan farming involves much more than turning a profit. He finds lasting satisfaction in his human connections he makes on a daily basis with employees, customers and suppliers.
He also believes that their historical family farm, once owned by the legendary Boer General De Wet should balance profit -making and supply of quality meat to his customers.
Duan grew up in the Koppies district in the Free State. He currently farms with his father and brother on the family farms.He has spent a couple of years in America and gained valuable experience that he applies today in his own farming business.

He is very proud of the meat and chicken hampers that he markets on our FARM-TO-PLATE website.Duan stresses that farming simply for financial gain does not make sense: there are certain things that money cannot buy.
