A word of introduction – Cara Nel, Nutritionist at Urban Farmer

Urban Farmer are proud to announce the appointment of Cara Nel as a nutritionist within its technical team in South Africa.


“I had the privilege of spending most of my childhood on our family farm outside of Modimolle. From a young age, I assisted my father with the daily tasks of cattle, sheep and crop farming. Being exposed to agriculture from such a young age helped shape my chosen profession. I obtained a BSc Agric degree in Animal Science from the University of Pretoria and I am currently busy with my MSc in Monogastric Nutrition. Prior to joining Urban Farmer I worked as a nutritionist at SwiNE Nutrition Management where I gained valuable experience in feed formulation as well as on-farm consultations. I am passionate about nutrition and I aim to add value wherever I can. I strive to make the most of each opportunity that comes my way.”
