South African farmers visit local operation
CLARE — When using the blog on his family farm's website as a journal of daily activities, Trent Sanderson forgets it can be read by anyone with Internet access – like a John Deere implement dealer from South Africa.
Sarel duPlessis contacted Sanderson after reading the blog and brought nine of his clients in August to learn about farming practices in the Midwest.
"He (duPlessis) emailed us around the Fourth of July to ask if he could bring a group for a visit. I was just baffled that would even happen," Sanderson said. "We were just blown away, and honored. This doesn't happen to everyone."
