Anthony Goble

Anthony Goble INNOVATIVE management, new ideas and a passion for agriculture has made Tongaat’s Anthony Goble the national Agri SA / Toyota SA Young Farmer of the Year.

Goble was first awarded with the KZN Kwanalu young Farmer of the Year title a few months ago and went on to compete with industry leaders from around the country.

Goble is the fifth generation of his family to farm in Tongaat.

Aside form the 280ha family sugar-cane farm, Goble runs another five separate farms including 430ha of cane and another 340ha that he leases from land reform beneficiaries, bringing the total area under sugar-cane to 1050ha.

Since inheriting the farm after his father passed, Goble has diversified into 12ha of bananas and 5ha of macadamia nuts.

He also leases out 20ha a year to local madumbi growers as part of a crop rotation scheme.

Goble has made it his mission to look at the best and most innovative ways to farm and grow his crops while training his team to excel at their jobs.

The father-of-three said it was an amazing feeling being recognised for his years of work, but commended his family and management team for their support.
