A young man recently gave other youths a lot to think about after his story was shared on a farming website called Farming Updates. The young man, who describes himself as an outdoors person, recently bought his first piece of land.
While his farm is not yet operational, Phila is a qualified goat and broiler farmer. Unlike other farmers who rely on only learning as they go on their farms, the young man holds an impressive qualification in farming.
Phila attended The Buhle Farmers Academy in Mpumalanga where he received his qualification in poultry production and livestock production. The ambitious youngster also completed a number of short courses at Cedara College of Agriculture and holds a goat farming certificate.
Phila explains that starting out as a young farmer was not always easy. According to him, he faced a number of issues while trying to secure land for his farming ventures. While he struggled for a while he finally secured the land.
He now says that he is setting up his farm which was funded by money he had saved while working in the corporate world. He is the proud owner of the farm that he decided to call Lauli Farms.
Meanwhile, his followers took the opportunity to wish him many years of successful farming.
"Congratulations Sompisi. We are inspired. Siyakubongela."
