Black Farmers Association of South Africa
Land is Power
The Black Farmers Association (BFASA) was formed in 2015. The association was established to benefit Black farmers especially in South Africa where only Whites, Coloureds and indians derive meaningful benefit from Government funding and support programs.
Black African people ownership of land is not equitable. They rely on small scale farming of both crops and mixed range of livestock. BFASA strives to ensure that Black farmers benefit from government subsidies, land reform and acquisition programmes including skills transfer and provision of farming implements to reach a full fledged commercial trading status. The main objective is to mentor black farmers to achieve commercially successful farming which is sustainable and which will contribute to food security in South Africa
