This 861-hectare farming enterprise is set in a beautiful location with sweeping views of the surrounding hills and plains. The farm is a typical winter rainfall farm with 525-ha suitable for the production of wheat, barley or oats. Sheep do well in this area.

The buildings, fences and roads are in good repair, but the livestock handling facilities are something of note and are useful to operate this farm as a productive livestock farm. At present there are 1,000 Dohne Merino sheep ewes and the farm has the capacity to extent it, if needed.

The well-maintained homestead (4 bedroom) is spacious (600 sq metre) and surrounded by a splendid garden with an outside braai. The 2 flats are also newly restored. There are numerous sheds, out buildings and labourer cottages. All in good repair.

The farm reflects 525-hectare of arable land for the production of winter grain like wheat, oats or barley. The hilly areas are natural veldt also used for grazing. The arable land is mainly fertile sand-loam (60%) and some sandy areas (30%) and with good drainage due to the topography of gradual slopes.

The 380 - 400mm per annum winter rainfall is suitable to carry 2,000 small stock when managed properly. At a lambing percentage of 110%, lambs are marketed from the veldt during November and December. The average micron of the wool is 18.6.

The entire farm is divided into 19 pasture camps which are all provided with water points for livestock. Water is obtained from one borehole fitted with a windmill, 2 perennial fountains as well as permanent water from the Theewaterskloof Scheme. There are also three earth catchment dams.

Access to all parts of the land is conveniently provided by well surfaced gravel roads.
It is not often that an economic viable farming enterprise of this extent and potential in this prestigious part of the Western Cape is offered for sale. The farm is located 30 km from Bredasdorp and 35 km from Swellendam.

For sale at R24,000,000.00 excluding VAT, but the sale can be structured as a going concern.

If you have ever dreamed of having your own secure and secluded sheep farm, we have this pleasant surprise for you!
