Jacques Beukes; AGRI SA Youngfarmer of the Year 2016.

Jacques Beukes, a 35-year-old table grape producer from De Doorns in the Hex River Valley, is Agri Western Cape and Santam Agriculture's Young Farmer of the Year. He is married to Heleen and the proud Father of 2 daughters.

Jacques, who completed a B Com degree in Logistics at the University of Stellenbosch, has been farming for ten years on the farm Modderdrift. He is Agri Western Cape's regional representative, a director of the Hex Valley Table Grape Association, and chair of the Breede Valley municipality's producer forum.

'Young farmers bring new ideas and energy to the economy. They like new developments and challenges,' he says.

Jacques says he likes the table grape industry: 'I will continue investing in this wonderful industry. There are many challenges every day, but you have to convert them into opportunities. By striving for higher standards, you put your fellow farmers under pressure to raise their own standards. In this way you can contribute to a better agricultural industry in South Africa.'
