Welcome to Witzenberg PALS
Partners in Agri Land Solutions
Success starts with our way of thinking – Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela.
The Witzenberg PALS initiative is a private land reform initiative that was established by the commercial farmers in the Witzenberg district, in partnership with local communities and all three spheres of Government. The key objective is to help create an enabling environment to implement innovative land reform and economic empowering projects/businesses that is in line with Chapter 6 of the National Development Plan (NDP).
The PALS framework represents a radical departure from past land reform initiatives and is based on sound business principals, mentorship and training of emerging black farmers to become successful commercial farmers. All PALS projects are implemented in accordance with the unique PALS framework and registered at the PALS Centre, which is based in Ceres.
The PALS Centre is governed as a non-profit company (Witzenberg PALS NPC) by a board of directors, selected by the PALS Members. The Centre coordinates, facilitates, implement and monitor all projects/businesses at a centralised office. The centre provides a physical location to centralise all its projects/businesses and act as a â€œone stop shopâ€ for all the project related functions.
We invite all agricultural role players to engage with us and become part of the solution in the South African land reform space.
