ASA works hard in bringing farmers and the farming experience to visitors, not only to educate visitors about farming, but also to showcase the positive change in farming communities. ASA supports these successes and acts as the link between farmer members and visitors (local and foreign).
ASA is not a booking web portal; its core focus is on farmers and farming. We help all farmers identify possible Agritourism activities and services that farmers can offer on their farms, as well as help with building their brand by taking advantage of marketing and media activities. Preventing rural out-migration by providing an opportunity for small and medium size farmers to improve their quality of life in Africa is a primary concern.
WHAT IS AGRITOURISM SOUTH AFRICA
We try to bring rural towns/municipalities, farmers and agricultural workers together through Agritourism and Agriprocessing
All three are inter-related and depend on each other. As technology and other influences impact on farmers, so fewer agricultural workers are going to be employed. These agricultural workers need to be reskilled.

Once approved, the Agritourism farmer will become a full-time member and pay an once-off joining fee of R500 and an annual membership fee of R1 500 to cover the costs of website listing, auditors etc.

The Israeli Embassy is currently very involved in agricultural projects around South Africa.
Sharing Israeli experience (that has been accumulated from the last 60 years) with South African farmers.
Existing projects are in various provinces. Mpumalanga, Eastern Cape, Northwest and Kwazula Natal.
Our work is to identify the right place (farms) with the right people (farmers). Through local donors, we buy modern agricultural tools and implement modern methods, mainly in vegetable production.
The training offered is on-the-spot training. We start from the first step of growth until the very end, marketing the produce. Until now, we have had tremendous success with individual farmers from different farming villages where, in the past, for example, the farmers were only planting before the rainy season and now with sponsored drip irrigation systems, they are able to produce all year round bringing ten times the profit they used to bring.
