A barefoot grass farmer


Angus is a no-nonsense man who doesn’t wear any shoes.  Maybe it gives him a deeper sense of connection with the earth he works. Maybe he is rebelling after many years of wearing a suit in the financial district of London. Or maybe he just doesn’t like shoes.

Footwear aside, this barefoot farmer has a lot to say about modern farming methods. Not much of it is good. Having grown up on a cattle farm in KwaZulu-Natal, he knows a bit about the industry, and since returning to the land, has taken the alternative route of biodynamic farming. “Organic is good,” says Angus, “but biodynamic is better. It’s truly in tune with nature.” He’s inspired by the philosophies of Joel Salatin (read The Omnivore’s Dilemma by Michael Pollan) and, while he raises cattle, he calls himself a “grass farmer”.

Carbon-negative beef


Angus uses the high density ‘mobgrazing’ technique for farming his grass fed cattle. Developed through observing the actions of herds of large wild herbivores, this method mimics nature and is particularly good at sinking carbon. “If ten percent of cattle in the world were grazed in this way, we wouldn’t have the carbon issues we have today”, he says. Mobgrazing works by allowing the cattle to graze the top third of the grass plant (the healthiest bit) only before moving them along. The roots are then ‘shed’, effectively storing carbon in the soil. This allows for optimal grass growth, and carbon-negative beef. It’s not often you hear that.

Eating food is political


“98% of cattle in South Africa are grain-fed. This isn’t healthy for them, but because retailers go for the lowest prices farmers are forced to turn to industrial methods to make a living. Rainforests are being destroyed to feed cattle grain!” Angus believes that current food systems are causing the wrong people to produce the wrong food in the wrong places. The food we eat has a direct impact on food policies the world over, and eating is therefore a political act. “The irony is that most people try to avoid politics, but you really can’t when it’s on your plate.”

The slaughterhouse with a respect for life

At the Spier Biodynamic Farm, they also produce real freerange chickens (ones that actually roam around in the fields and bathe themselves in dust) and biodynamic veggies. All the animals that are farmed for their meat are slaughtered on site. The slaughterhouse is about as good as a place like that gets – the staff are taught to respect the animals and revere and be humbled by the power that they have when taking an animal’s life. To be conscious.

Angus hopes to raise awareness and erase consumer apathy about food production. “Agriculture causes the most destruction on the planet, but also presents the biggest opportunity to heal the planet, empower people and reduce poverty.” This is the kind of farmer we trust.

These pasture-raised chickens get to roam free in the fields.


2 100 chickens live in these egg mobiles at night. They lay between 1 600 and 1 900 eggs a day.


The chicks are kept indoors until they're strong enough to venture out at 3 weeks.


The biodynamic vegetables are supplied to Spier's restaurants

Some of Spier Biodynamic farm's produce is available at the Stellenbosch farmers market at the Waldorf school

After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years

by jessica wnye  |   02 April 2017 06:16 AM   |   0 replies

After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: or call him +2349055637784 you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything.

Best and genuine spell caster online to save your marriage and relationship

by ELIZABETH STRONG  |   29 August 2016 08:51 PM   |   0 replies

Am Jerry miler, I live in London, and I’m happily married with a lovely wife and three children. I had a very big problem with my wife few months ago, to the extent that she left the house with our kids to her parents' for almost 5 months. All efforts to bring them back proved abortive. Friends and Family were all in concern and my very close mate gave me an advice concerning a spell caster, and he quote; “There’s someone who can handle your situation, he’s always ready and able to do anything related to spiritual matters, I searched for a spell caster on the internet, his advert was everywhere, i found his number and called him on his mobile number +2347052958531. Although I never believed in spell casting, but he convinced me and I had no choice than to follow his advice, because I never dream of losing my lovely wife and I was desperate. So I did all what he told me to do and i did. He told me that I’ll get my wife back in two days after the spell is completed. I was skeptical. He casted the spell for me and i was so anxious waiting to see or hear from her, until the second day when my wife called and said she was coming HOME…..It was like a joke to me!!! That’s how I got my family back through spiritual means and our relationship is now stronger than ever. One of the price I was asked to pay was to tell it to people around me that problems like this, can always be solved by Dr Ewan. And this is his email too if you wish to contact him and solve your problem too , my advice to you out there is to visit this great Dr Ewan and tell him your problems. He's capable of handling anything spiritual and spell casting. Thanks a lot for saving my marriage. You can also add him up on watsapp on +2349057353987, you can also call him on his mobile number +2347052958531
