This distinguishing 2959-hectare farm is idyllically situated at both sides of the Gats river gorge. The Compass mountain is clearly visible in the distance. It consists of 3 adjacent title deeds. Situated about 10 km from the quant town of Nieu Bethesda.

The farm is a typical summer rainfall farm with 30-ha irrigation lands suitable for the production of fodder or lucerne from a weir feeding a canal out of the river. Cattle and sheep do well in this area.

Farming in this area consists predominantly of livestock like cattle, sheep and angora farming. Luserne does extremely well in the sandy-loam soil in this warm dry climate and offers quality feed for animals in the dry season. Water usage rights are not registered.

The topography is rugged with cliffs, mountainous areas, undulating hills, vast flat areas on the plateaus outside the gorge as well as the Gats river traversing through the farm for 6-kilometre. Sometimes the river is flowing strongly after rainfall in the upstream areas.

Vegetation consists mainly of natural Karoo-like scrubs, succulent Karoo, patches of various grasses like red grass, sweet grasses and some sour grass species, dense riverine thicket, mainly Acacia thorn and Karee trees and beautiful Poplar- and White Stinkwood groves.
