Dean Da Mota

Areas of responsibility: Manure spreading, trucking, maintenance

Seasonal (March - November 2014)

A native of Klerksdorp, South Africa, Dean decided to take on an internship at VFF in order to gain more experience farming as well as to see another side of the agricultural industry. While he grew up in a rural area with many local farms and plenty of friends that loved the outdoors, Dean’s family did not work in agriculture. Instead, his parents are owners of a local general store, an experience that has helped to shape Dean’s own interests in business, management and marketing. In fact, Dean’s plans upon returning home include applying for another internship experience in 2015 and then pursuing studies in business.


In addition to his parents, Dean’s family includes an older brother, who also lives in Klerksdorp. When not on the farm, Dean loves to spend his time hiking and otherwise enjoying nature.
