UGIE / MACLEAR: Designated cattle farm of note for the true stock farmer
This 3269-hectare pristine property lies within the greater Drakensberg region renowned for its mountains, perennial rivers, and natural grass habitat. Due to the absolute remote location the area is quiet, secure, and tucked away in a beautiful valley.
If one prefers a wonderful unique destination, combining an unblemished healthy lifestyle with exquisite panoramic views of mountains, valleys, and sky – this would be it!
One of South Arica’s most pristine unpolluted rivers, the Mooi River transverses the centre of the property. The river is arguably the best stretch of river for wild trout in the Eastern Cape. This farm offers serenity and oneness with nature in a secure, tranquil, unencumbered environment. Here one can breathe pure mountain air and drink pure spring water, daily, while enjoying cattle ranching at its best.
The main residence, the newly built 15 metre x 25 metre shed, as well as other outbuildings, are in good repair.
The 50 inner camps are fenced with 7 to 9 strand fences. The 3 metal kraals, one with spray race, are strategically situated and are used as cattle handling facilities. Natural springs, perennial rivers, 50 earth dams and tributaries supply water to all the camps throughout the entire farm, for livestock drinking water. Two solar pumps supply water to strategic drinking troughs at the top of the mountains.
The primary land-use of the mountainous parts is largely livestock grazing because of its richness in grass species. These grasslands situated in higher and lower altitudes are used for cattle and game.
Vegetation consists mainly of natural sweet grasses and sour grass species. The carrying capacity is 1:2.5 LSU.
The 100-hectare arable land boasts exceptional fertile soil and there is also a 15-hectare pine plantation.
The 50 km network of internal roads and tracks gives access to most of the acreage. All roads are properly maintained and remain in good repair.
The farm lends itself to the discerning stock farmer, due to its production potential and scenic location. The relationship between neighbours and local farmers is excellent, so there is a wonderful network for assistance.
