Farm of 527 ha for sale outside Ficksburg in the beautiful Eastern Free State highlands. Price is R11,580 million. This farm forms part of a 1414 hectares nature reserve.

Own a piece of paradise. This gem's natural vegetation has been left untouched for at least 33 years. Only four hours (350km) from Johannesburg this amazing property has an abundance of water and is at the top of the list of beautiful farms in the Eastern Free State. Situated between Ficksburg and Fouriesburg in the Witteberg mountain range, only 30km from Ficksburg, 47km from Fouriesburg, 70km from Clarens, 88km from Bethlehem and 130km from Afriski. this farm comprises of mountaintop and valley terrain covering an area of 527 hectares. If slopes are taken into account the area must be at least 1 000 hectares. It is seldom that a property like this is available on the market. Senior officials from the Department of Nature Conservation made a comment "you do not get more beautiful than this!" on a recent visit. There is no current or any previous land claims.

A system of high density grazing or ultra high density grazing will work extremely well on the farm, removing the need for fixed camps while also vastly increasing the carrying capacity. Similarly Damara sheep and/or indigenous goats offer a huge opportunity.

Two dams could be stocked with bass, carp and smallmouth yellowfish. Trout, catfish and banded tilapia could also be successful. All the water sources originate on the farm and is therefore unpolluted. Due to the abundance of water aquaculture or aquaponics could be possible. The neighbours farm with vegetables, maize, sunflowers, sugar beans, soy beans, etc. This is also the perfect area for cherries, pomegranates, peaches, pears, apricots, asparagus and apples to name but a few. A mere 30 km from the farm is a successful wine farm. Wine farming is therefore a possibility. Bottling water is another opportunity as the water i...
