    If you’re a farmer and not yet exploring the financial benefits of agritourism, you’re not doing it right. Just ask Jacqui Taylor, the no-nonsense founder and CEO of Agritourism Africa. She joins us on episode 41 of Farmer’s Inside Track to talk about the benefits of agritourism, especially post covid-19.
    Also look out for inspirational interviews from the farmers who feed us, including Christin-Joy Pharasi who overcome lupus and now break barriers in Jacobsdal in the Free State. Chef Pumla Brooke-Thomae also shares the secrets to a great Mzansi home-cooked meal.

Our book of the week is “90 Rules for Entrepreneurs: How to Hustle Your Way to a Business That Works” by Marnus Broodryk. Food For Mzansi co-founder Ivor Price says it’s so good that he will personally give you your money back if you don’t learn anything new from it – and he hasn’t even met the author before!
