Facilitating Smart Farming in South Africa

Our farm practices a holistic approach that is cantered around building sustainable ecosystems.

With the heart of local economy in mind, House Harvest aims at building aquaponics farms that will supply fresh fish and leafy greens that are organic, great quality with a minimal carbon footprint. The business is built on ethical farming and leads in developing consultancy, training and education in climate smart agriculture (CSA).

House Harvest CEO Gugulethu Mahlangu is invested in research and development by involving the localized community to participate and further this innovative way of farming in South Africa. 


Why we are the Choice?

Our mission is unique — we are partnering with communities to grow urban smart farms by providing fresh, quality wholesome food in a sustainable manner. It serves as an industry-wide declaration of commitment. It conveys our major objective: from farm to fork. We are reinventing the future of smart farming in South Africa. We aim to increase awareness by enhancing and distributing work through shared publications, strong online presence, educational events to establish network exchanges (including rural cooperation and township projects).
