This is the national online portal for South African smallholders, small farmers and rural dwellers.

What began 21 years ago as the printed Gauteng Smallholder Magazine, has now evolved into the SA Smallholder Digital Magazine, with a much larger national presence.

We are smallholders ourselves and have, over the years, tried and tested almost everything one can do on a plot…not always to great success, but with a lot of lessons learned. We bring this knowledge to our editorial. Combining that with over 40 years of publishing experience means we produce good quality, easy-to-read, useful material for South Africa’s smallholder and small farmer community.

On this site you can:

~ Read online or download the latest edition of the SA Smallholder Digital Magazine .
