Farming Today This Week: Farmers on Tour
An international group of farmers explore agriculture in Kenya and South Africa. Presented by Anna Jones.
An international group of farmers travel through Africa exploring different types of agriculture, from hand-milking cows in Kenya to growing vegetables in the townships of South Africa. They are Nuffield Farming Scholars from Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, Canada, Ireland and the UK, and their businesses range from cattle ranching to dairy farming, crab fishing to free range egg production. The team are sponsored by their home countries to take a break from the farm, travel the world and learn lessons that will benefit the global agricultural community. What the scholars find in sub-Saharan Africa is a world away from how things are done back home in the West; which raises one important question - does the world feed Africa or can Africa feed the world? Produced and presented by UK Nuffield Scholar Anna Jones.
