Female farmer explains how she got into the business, gives advice to young girls

Previously Briefly News wrote a piece about a female farmer, Keneilwe_farmerette, who took some snaps with her squad.

Her 'squad' turned out to be cows and she is a farmer. Briefly News got in contact with her and asked her how she got into farming, what her plans are for the future, what she thinks about the country and if she had any advice for young girls.

She revealed that her father's best friend was a farmer and she had followed him everywhere. Growing up, she never thought that she'd become a farmer but she had learned so much that it came naturally to her.

Keneilwe believes that there is still a lot of negativity around women in the workplace, especially those who succeed as CEOs and farmers.
