This 4624-hectare farm is situated between Calvinia and the quaint town of Loeriesfontein an area well known for the production of quality lamb- and sheep meat as well as the production of wool.
The farm lies in a predominantly winter rainfall area with occasional summer thunderstorms. After good winter rains the veldt erupts into a hotspot for beautiful flowers and bulbs, carpeting vast areas. The mountainous areas to the North of the farm are exceptional quality veldt and in pristine condition. Due to the 947-metre high elevation, these mountainous areas enjoy a higher rainfall than the Niewoudtville escarp. The house is situated at 562-metre above sea level.
Natural grazing consists of palatable shrubs and nutritious succulents which bloom after good winter rains. On some of the hills you will find the quiver tree which is probably the most spectacular aloe species that is found in South Africa due to its sculptural form.
Ample water for about 27-hectare gravity flood irrigation from 3 earth dams filled after good rains. This acreage is contoured and ready to plant. Lucerne and winter grain as fodder do well in this dry climate. The previous owner planted up to 90-hectares of Lucerne.
A perennial fountain and 5 windmills supply drinking water for the livestock. Various 4x4 tracks will take you to the highest outskirts of the farm.
The perimeter fencing is mostly (90%) jackal proof and the farm`s total acreage is well-planned and sub-divided into various inner camps. The carrying capacity is 1:30 LSU.
