This well-developed livestock farm in the Humansdorp area, is located 36 kilometers from town in a very safe part of the district, with only two access roads. The lush natural environment and potential make the property an attractive and profitable proposition for the prospective investor.
The carrying capacity of the 1235ha farm is 1200 ewes, and could be increased with the further development of the 155ha of cultivated dry lands. The farm has registered water from three earth dams for 30 HA of irrigation and which could be supplemented by two registered boreholes delivering approximately 5000 litres per hour each, both of which are fitted with Eskom powered electrical pumps.
The boreholes also provide water for livestock, through a series of tanks in various locations. Most of the camps on the farm has earth dams and a section borders the Welbedacht river, where livestock are supplied with drinking water. Camps in this area are also fitted with Tanks, which are filled manually in times of severe water shortage. Three locations in the outlying areas of the farm have been earmarked for the sinking of additional boreholes.
Infrastructure also includes a three bedroom homestead with its own water and electricity supply, several storage facilities, a large shed for implements, a shearing facility, ample labour housing with ablution blocks, and a network of piping serving the various water tanks.
The natural grazing are made up of a selection of shrubs and natural grass, the most abundant of which is Rooigras. On the drylands, the pastures are planted with a combination of suitable perennial grasses.
The farm is located in the sweeter area of the district, bordering the Humansdorp Suurveld with a large area of Fynbos on the farm.
The owner has an ongoing project to eradicate alien plants, mostly wattle, providing additional income from the braai wood market in the nearby coastal area of Humansdorp, Jeffreys Bay and St Francis Bay.
A variety of small game is found on the property, with several larger species roaming the farm from time to time and which allows for hunting as a further source of income. The farm falls within the Suuranys Bavaria, which means that hunting can be done all year round. Under normal circumstances, international hunters visit the farm, facilitated by professional hunters.
Livestock and movable assets are not included in the sale price, but could be a subject for negotiation.
