Jeffrey Zetler, who was well known in the local community, was stabbed to death on Saturday afternoon.

A Stellenbosch farmer was murdered at the weekend in what's been called the first attack of its kind in the area.

Jeffrey Zetler, who was well known in the local community, was of stabbed to death on Saturday afternoon.

Sources say he'd been attacked and robbed several time previously.

Head of the Stellenbosch Community Policing Forum, Dr Carol Puhl-Snyman says Zetler was attacked by two men wearing balaclavas and when he resisted they stabbed him twice, once straight in the heart.

She says this is the first farm murder to happen in the area.

What does happen on occasions are assaults and robberies...

Dr Carol Puhl-Snyman, Stellenbosch CPF head

Farms are outlying and often isolated and they make easy attacks for people who plan carefully...

Dr Carol Puhl-Snyman, Stellenbosch CPF head

Puhl-Snyman says the incident has resulted in concern among community members about safety.

In the farming area it's been very quiet in the first half of this year, but maybe it's not as quiet as it looks because there's low level crime that's not being reported.

Dr Carol Puhl-Snyman, Stellenbosch CPF head
