A 36-year-old egg producer from Plettenberg Bay in the Southern Cape has been chosen as the Agri Western Cape Santam Agriculture's Young Farmer of the Year. Johan van der Schyff was named as winner during a ceremony in Durbanville last night and will compete later this year for the title of Agri SA Toyota SA National Young Farmer of the Year.

He also established a second farm in Humansdorp, with 250-thousand laying hens. Agri Western Cape CEO, Jannie Strydom says, "This is a very prestigious accolade and a great achievement.
