SHILOH THIRD HARVESTING WITH MAYOR K VIMBAYO
In 2012/13, the CHDA, in a partnership with Farm Vision, established a community fruit project in Shiloh Irrigation Scheme in Whittlesea, where the Mayime Primary Co-operative was assisted with the expansion of its current vineyard from 7ha to 20ha.
The CHDA provides equipment, trellising materials, root stock and farming inputs, as well as funded labour costs during the expansion phase. This year is the third harvest and it was graced by the presence of Mayor K Vimbayo. Grapes will be transported to Cape Town for processing in table wine under the Inkosi label. The Inkosi wine is currently available on sale at Pick and Pay for R 49.99 per bottle.
