This farm embraces an area of 4176 hectare and is one of only a handful of livestock farms in the Upper-Karoo that offers immaculate infrastructure together with pristine vegetation.
With a carrying capacity of 1:18 LSU or 3 hectare per SSU (Small Stock Unit) the farm was farmed for more than 20 years with a conservative carrying capacity of 1:6 hectare with Small Stock. The average rainfall is about 250mm per annum, the veldt varies from short lime ganna veldt to fertile "leegtes" with various typical Karoo shrubs, "ganna leegtes", quality Boesman and other grasses. After the rain a large number of succulents add additional valuable natural grazing.
All necessary farming infrastructure including a well-designed feedlot feeding up to 1000 sheep and a hectare of Lucerne under irrigation is in place. All infrastructure is in excellent repair. The accommodation offers more than expected and consists of a neat, cosy face- brick house with stylish, modern finishes. The 1.2M high perimeter fencing with 7-9mm steel wires is jackal- proof and divides the farm into 18 inner camps. Water for household and livestock is obtained from 16 windmills and 16 reservoirs, supplying ample water for livestock in 3-5 water troughs per camp. The roads on the farm are in good condition and all sections of the farm can be easily accessed.
A rich diversity of edible, high- nutrition bushes, shrubs and Boesman grasses cover the entire farm. While it is currently utilised for natural grazing by top quality Dorper Sheep, it is equally suitable for the production of cattle, goats and game. Springbuck and small antelopes also roam the farm.
An economically viable farm of this nature seldom comes onto the market.
