Vlakplaas Boerdery – Grain South Africa’s new Grain Producer of the Year.
Four men stood up as one when Vlakplaas Boerdery was awarded the prestigious Grain Producer of the Year accolade at Grain South Africa’s gala dinner on 30th September 2011.
Koos Barnard acknowledged that his family’s deep respect for God and each other is the cornerstone to their success. He believes that their relationship with key stakeholders such as Grain South Africa, agribusiness advisors and suppliers helped Vlakplaas become the thriving business it is today.
Upon saying: "...be good to your sons and they’ll be good to you," Koos turned to his three sons and told them that this award is as much theirs as it was his.
