Rugby teams supported by the Community at Thornlands Farm

January 2023

When Worker Committees prioritise the well-being of workers on the farm and creative opportunities for community support and socialising - it can look something like this! We received a report from PJ of Thornlands Farm, one of our grower partners near Swellendam, who described a wonderful sporting day that took place in December. Two farm teams and two club teams competed - Tangello vs Thornlands and the Barry Dale Stryders vs the Buffalo's from Buffeljagsrivier. We proudly support the initiatives of the Thornlands Farm worker committee and are delighted that they regularly prioritise sporting activities to bring the community together.
