Meet Green Pigs founder – Bongi Nxumalo

I’m a member of Pig Farmers South Africa, Facebook Group where I first discovered Bongi Nxumalo. I regard Bongi amongst the best Top 10 pig farmers in the group as he excels at the trade. Himself and others are setting trends and leading the way on producing quality pigs through following industry standards.

Bongi does not hoard knowledge but shares it freely to guide new pig farmers to improve their piggeries. It’s a privilege today he agreed to share his journey to farming with pigs for profit…enjoy.

Hello, please introduce yourself, your educational background and where you’re based?

My name is Bonginkosi Nxumalo, born in Bushbuckridge, Mpumalanga. I do not have a formal agricultural qualification, I have a Bsc in Computer Science from the University of KwaZulu-Natal. My farming operation is based in Devon (Gauteng).

What do you farm and why that choice of produce?

I am a pig farmer having established Green Pigs, I chose to farm in pigs because I care so much about pigs, besides the fact that I was born and raised in a farming community. I’m blessed with talent in agriculture that allows me to make a contribution to the world in a sustainable way for everyone and  generations to come.

What inspired you to venture into farming for profit?

Opportunities within the pork producing value chain are endless, it allowed me to identify myself in the pig industry. It gave me an opportunity to do what I love while making profit at the same time.
