VICTORIA WEST: Above-average Karoo farm
If you could choose one place to enjoy the Karoo farming atmosphere, this should be it!
Located in the midst of a sought-after area between Victoria West and Loxton, this 4,190-hectare farm is known as the "cream of the crop" due to its size, the topography consisting of extensive flood leegtes and well-preserved veldt, together with a wide variety of Karoo vegetation. The farm consists of 3 adjacent title deeds.
It is situated off a tarred road, 46 km from Victoria West and 35 km from Loxton. The convenient location makes it accessible from various destinations.
The veldt is in near-pristine condition due to proper veldt management and conservative grazing applied over many years. All farming infrastructure, including the fences, solar pumps and windmills, are well-maintained.
At present the seller farms with Merino ewes and Angora goats. An annual summer rainfall of 250 mm per annum enables a carrying capacity on the pristine veldt of 1:24 LSU, or 698 small stock units.
All infrastructure for an extensive economically viable livestock farm is in place. The farm is blessed with excellent quality underground water for irrigation, household, and livestock purposes. This water supply was not affected by the droughts of recent years.
This area is renowned for producing outstanding quality meat, wool and game. The warm hospitality and friendliness of people in the Karoo make a stay in this unique area an unforgettable experience. A section of the farm borders the well-renowned Melton Wold guest farm.
The farm is sub-divided into various veldt types and well-planned inner camps for efficient veldt management and utilisation. The topography consists of dolomite hills, valleys and plains, all of which are covered with typical Karoo shrubs and various grasses. These areas are also ideal for various game species. Jackal proof perimeter fencing with good quality stock proof fencing dividing the inner camps are all well-maintained. Two smaller camps are fully jackal proof fenced. About 16 boreholes are fitted with windmills and 3 with solar pumps, supplying drinking water for livestock together with two perennial fountains. Water is stored in 13 reservoirs and 3 water tanks. Some of these reservoirs can also be used for irrigation.
This this farm has two rivers flowing intermittently several times per annum, a valuable add-on to the value and quality of the natural veldt, because the rivers open and flood large areas (leegtes), supplying additional fodder and grazing for the livestock.
At present there is only one hectare of lucerne, but infrastructure exists to establish much more.
Accommodation on one of the title deeds is in an appealing 3-bedroom family homestead set in a lush garden. Other buildings include a shearing shed, cooler room, garages, and outbuildings.
This farm is perfect for the discerning stock farmer and nature- lover, both because of what it offers and for the potential it still holds!
