“Our business started in 2018. Our business purpose is to grow and be a part of agriculture in Africa. We strive in developing high yielding crops through our products and services, ultimately developing our God-given land and its people.

We allow our farmers to do what they do best (which is to farm), while we continue to supply and assist in the management of crops, if necessary.

Orand Bell's background


My parents were sugarcane farmers in Natal, where I developed a love and passion for farming whilst growing up. I attended an agricultural college during my high school years, and then developed a trade in diesel mechanics after schooling. I have also done over 15 agricultural based courses including Advanced Soil Fertility and Soil Classification. My latest achievement was the completion of my Basos Degree with FERTASA.

We are also very happy and privileged to say that we are a very tight, family-run business. My wife, Michelle, and I have worked closely together to establish our business, and our two young children are always very involved, wherever and whenever they can be.

Another privilege we have, is being able to donate a percentage of all our company profits to a children’s orphanage by the name of Lily of the Valley. We often keep in touch with them and do fun days/fundraisers to help contribute and assist towards this wonderful cause and our community.
