About this book:

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.
