About Us

Welcome to the FARMers EXchange trading platform!

'FARMEX' is the brainchild of a group of wheat farmers from the Western Cape and is owned and managed by SAwheatcashmarket (Pty) Ltd (reg. no: 2010/004022/07).

Markets are constantly evolving to function more efficient and fair.

The FARMEX trading platform was born from the idea of bringing closer, in a transparent environment, the buyers and sellers of physical agricultural products and services.

Until now, most agricultural products were sold by farmers via agents. Current mobile and internet technology enable farmers to directly market their own products – thus, shortening the path to market and potentially cutting marketing costs substantially.

The FARMEX trading platform will be such a direct marketing tool, enabling farmers to negotiate price, contractual and payment terms with buyers (which can also be other farmers!).

FARMEX is the first agricultural marketing instrument which was developed specifically to facilitate basis trading in South Africa!

Initially the concept started as a marketing tool for grains, but it quickly became apparent that the need also existed for other agricultural products.

Grain, feed, livestock and farm equipment can be traded on the FARMEX marketing platform. This list can be broadened if the need exist.
