Comprehensive training programs that are work related are followed at farm level. All these courses are accredited and add to skill level improvement of the employees on the farms. Further education is also encouraged to enhance careers in agriculture via learnership courses at Elsenburg Agricultural College, at tertiary level. Internships are also accepted annually for successful candidates at farm level, to broaden the practical skills and capabilities of these candidates.

All the crèches on the farms are registered and each consists of a caretaker and educator. The crèche takes care of the children from the age of six months to five years, while the employee is at work during the day. A comprehensive education program is also followed to mentally stimulate the young children, so that they can excel at school. The aim is to develop young leaders via the Paarl Youth Initiative (PYI) for the future that can make a difference in their community.

A community centre was erected to provide a fully equipped training, education and computer centre for employees and their children. It serves as a centre of excellence. The centre also serves as a community centre for church and social functions.
