The grain division is pivotal in Jireh’s value chain. Jireh Boerdery produces cash crops: wheat, barley, canola and oat silage. The twins’ attribute their success to the fact that they alternate grain crops with legumes and broad-leaf crops. Jireh Boerdery is part of Grain SA’s training programme – providing in-service training to workers, and the Willemse twins were also part of the top 3 finalists at the 2016 Grain SA/Syngenta Grain Producer of the Year Awards.
