The brothers raised R40 000 and convinced family members to inject another R40 000 into their idea.
Khanya called on young people to enter the agricultural space. "The great thing about agriculture is that it is a permanent sector as people will always be in need of food."
He said returning the land was key in ending poverty among black youth. "Land is very important and is a very valuable asset that one can use to improve their lives."
Khanya, who holds a BSc in agriculture from the University of KwaZulu-Natal, said young people should study agriculture and get practical experience before opening their own businesses.
The importance of education for young people aspiring to join the sector is echoed by Thando Mpendulo. The 29-year-old is head of department at the University of Fort Hare's department of agriculture (animal science). He also holds a PhD in animal science.
"There's a lot to do in this industry. I used to think that life in agriculture is dull but I learnt that there is so much that can be done here, especially in the field of academics," Mpendulo said.
