Enaleni means “Place of Abundance”

A South African story of social transformation, from inequality to a vision of hope and empowerment. Farm workers (some fourth generation) were given 60% shareholding of the original farm – to be in control of their own destiny.

Sustainable farming, accredited by WIETA (Wine and Agricultural Ethical Trading Association) and Fairtrade South Africa.

“I wanted to show my appreciation to them, the staff, current and some of those that had already retired. I wanted their children and grandchildren to be able to say one day: “My Father or Mother was not just a farm worker; they were farm owners as well. I wanted to leave a legacy behind for them.” ~ Schalk Visser, Nagenoeg
