Eshowe is a major sugarcane growing area, from which the local farmers supply the Huletts mill at Amatikulu. However, many of the farmers are now diversifying into avocados, timber, bananas, proteas, macadamias, tomatoes & vegetables. Besides sugar, the Nkwaleni Valley is famous for its grapefruit, oranges and lemons. We will take you around and show you agriculture in this area. You can meet the farmers and inspect some of the huge citrus packhouses in the area, as well as a sophisticated frozen juice factory.
I have farmed sugar, timber and vegetables and I am pretty well versed in agricultural matters. And whatever I don’t know, I can find someone who does!!
