The Western Cape Department of Agriculture is primarily responsible for the promotion of agriculture in all its rich diversity in the Western Cape. It provides a wide range of development, research and support services to the agricultural community in the Western Cape.
The department's administrative headquarters are situated on the historic farm, Elsenburg, in the picturesque Boland region. We also render services to new and commercial farmers and agri workers from our regional research farms, Further Education and Training Centres, extension offices and state veterinary offices.
