Goliath started by growing only 1000 fynbos plants but now produces more than 600 000 plants per year in her De Fynne nursery near Franschoek, with business partner Elton Jefthas. Goliath also cultivates plant material, like blueberry plants, for the agricultural sector.

The 34-year old Goble farms sugarcane in Kwazulu-Natal near Upper Tongaat and has been farming alongside his wife and mother since 2003.

Toyota also launched the generation 8 Toyota Hilux at the event. It will be available in 2016.
