Listeners could tune in from 5am – 7pm to get to know the region’s agricultural icons and to hear how they can lend a helping hand to this crucial sector, which literally feeds us all.

OFM encouraged listeners to send a message of encouragement to thank farmers, and their labourers for what they do for us every day. A voice note could be sent via Telegram to 084 222 9497 (data rates apply), or photos and videos could be shared to OFM’s social platforms (Facebook, Twitter or Instagram) with #OFMFarmerDay.

According to Lindiwe Mtwentula, OFM marketing manager: “As the profound quote by Brenda Schoepp goes, ‘once in your life you need a doctor, a lawyer, a policeman and a preacher. But every day, three times a day, you need a farmer.’ At OFM, we’re proud to support the farmers of central South Africa. Our hearts beat agri, so we want to do our part to show the men and women working in that sector how important they are to us and to society, as well as promote ways in which people can assist them during times of need.”
