POA | 1,106Ha Farm For Sale in Bethal Rural



Escape to the heart of agricultural opportunity with this exceptional farm nestled next to Bethal, Mpumalanga, South Africa. Your chance to own a piece of history awaits, as these 1106 hectares of prime land, held within a family trust for over a century, are now open for a new chapter of prosperity.

Embrace the future of farming with innovative and diversified approaches, ensuring not only agricultural success but also opening doors to vertical food production. This forward-thinking strategy transforms the property into a highly profitable investment, providing sustainability in the ever-evolving world of agriculture.

Unlock the full potential of these properties by exploring mixed-use development opportunities. Imagine strip malls, service stations, guest houses, restaurants, tea gardens, boutique hotels, and conference facilities seamlessly blending with the still-operational farming venture. This unique integration sets the stage for a thriving agri-tourism venture, creating a dynamic synergy between food production and the visitor experience.

The properties come equipped with established large dams and boreholes, offering a robust solution to the prevailing water crisis. Beat the challenges with a property that not only addresses current needs but anticipates future demands, with potential for additional boreholes and water storage facilities, enabling efficient irrigation of specific areas.

Approximate areas and land use include:
• 2 hectares of irrigated land near the homestead for vegetable cultivation.
• 6 hectares of land with irrigation potential adjoining a large dam, opening up possibilities for further vegetable production.
• 341 hectares of dryland, comprising 292 hectares of Hutton and Avalon soils, historically producing 9-10 tons per hectare of maize, and 50 hectares of Arcadia and Sandy soils, demonstrating yields of up to 4 tons per hectare of soybeans under an average rainfall of 600-700mm per annum. All arable lands are fenced from grazing areas.
• 703 hectares of natural grazing.
• 30 hectares of Eragrostis for grazing or hay production.

Some of the arable land near existing or potential boreholes is well-suited to intensive vegetable production using drip irrigation. With the increasing demand for plant-based proteins, the potential for producing, supplying, and possibly processing vegetables becomes a viable and lucrative option.

The areas under Eragrostis are ideal for winter feed (hay) if beef or dairy production is practiced, or for supplying fodder to drought-stricken areas with a profitable market for hay production. Seize the opportunity to be part of a legacy where tradition meets innovation, and where the potential for growth is as vast as the land itself.

This unique property, currently on tender, offers different portions for potential buyers to bid on, providing flexibility for individual preferences or the option to acquire the entire property. Don't miss your chance to cultivate success in this agricultural gem with limitless possibilities.
