This article provides a profile on crime, poverty and related issues farm workers have to deal with in their community. A multidisciplinary study was done by the Faculty of Health Sciences of the North-West University (Potchefstroom Campus) on certain farms in the North-West Province of South Africa and is known as FLAGH, meaning the Farm Labour, Agriculture and General Health study. Thirty (N=30) respondents were identified through systematic random sampling techniques for this study. Qualitative interviews were conducted for data collection purposes. The aim of this article is to do an overview of available literature on the perceptions of farm worker's in an informal farming settlement concerning poverty and crime in support of the study.
