Za Policy reform, global integration and agro-food restructuring have all significantly destabilised the paternalist labour and social order that evolved in the Western Cape in the 150 years after the abolition of slavery. They have not, however, replaced it; nor have they led to complete transformation. White farmers have to some extent been politically marginalised – yet they still wield significant economic power. Although they have been forced to jettison elements of paternalist farming styles, they have been able to ensure that, in large part, these changes occurred on their own terms.

The patterns of movement were themselves highly racialised. The majority of individuals in Nduli was reported to have moved from elsewhere in South Africa, while almost 40 per cent of adults in Bella Vista and almost 80 per cent of adults in Op die Berg were reported to have moved from a nearby farm. This reflects a situation in which the majority of African respondents were originally migrant workers who settled in Ceres after initially making the journey from the Eastern Cape, while significant numbers of coloured respondents have settled in Bella Vista after being retrenched, fired or voluntarily moving off farms.

Off-farm seasonal workers appear to predominate in absolute numbers. In the PLAAS study, the total number of regular workers – permanent and on-farm temporary – accounted for was 3 728, as opposed to a peak-time use of 6 863 off-farm harvest workers. It should, however, be remembered that it is, in theory, possible for a temporary worker to work on more than one farm, even during the same harvest; thus peak harvest team figures may not be a reliable indicator of absolute numbers of harvesting workers.
