De Hoop Karsten Farms

De Hoop, one of Karsten Farming’s table-grape producing farms, shared with us how they have used CDI Connect to connect every single farm worker to the strategy of the organisation. Every season they conduct a True North review to connect their daily activities to the priorities of that season, ensuring exceptional quality, productivity and cost-effectiveness. They also share how they use this daily farm management system (My Farm) to continuously develop people by providing continuous (up to two times per day) performance feedback. People thrive when it is completely clear what they need to do, how that makes a difference and gets immediate feedback so that they can learn and grow at the fastest possible rate. For Karsten Farms, this means that just by running their business this way, they grow people while they grow produce.
