Creating Jobs through sustainable farming

Anna Phosa, two-time winner of the department of agriculture’s female farmer of the year started her pig farm with only four pigs.

She is a hands-on farmer who is willing to get her hands dirty to ensure the success of Dreamland Piggery.

Driven by the passion she developed her skills to bring to life a productive farm which now creates jobs.


Dreamland Piggery was started by Anna Phosa in 2004 in Sedibeng district on a small Agricultural holding plot of 2ha. The farm started with 4 sows and later in 2005 grew into 50 sow unit. In 2005 the farm employed 4 permanent workers. In 2008 Dreamland piggery started supplying Pick n pay with 10 pigs per week. The pigs were slaughtered and supplied via an abattoir. While running a small piggery on a plot, Anna joined a group of 6 women and formed a cooperative called Balemi ba lekoa in 2007. In 2010 Anna resigned and grew her piggery to specialize in pig production.

Anna Phosa has done several agricultural short courses including pig production. She also a member of SAPPO and sits on the committee Developing farmer within SAPPO. In addition to the short courses, both Anna Phosa and daughter Nthabisend received pig production training from Denmark through DANIDA B2B programme run by Danish embassy from 2009.

In order to grow the piggery to the commercial level and keep up with the market opportunity, in 2011 Anna Phosa took an initiative and purchased a bigger farm in Vanderbijlpark through ABSA loan.
