This impressive ±887ha mixed use farm is comprised of ±110ha irrigation lands, ±110ha arable drylands and the balance of the farm is grazing as well as improvements, roads and dams.
A 5-tower shiftable Valley centre pivot irrigates the following:
• 3 x 30ha full circles
• 1x 20ha ⅓ circle.
Water for irrigation is pumped from a 3 million m³ registered irrigation dam which is shared with 2 neighbouring farms. Water licences are in place and water taxes are paid and up-to-date. Precision soil sampling has been done on the cropping lands and the necessary corrections have been made including lime applications. Underground drainage was laid by a professional drainage company to avoid waterlogging.
Of the ±110ha of drylands, ±25ha is prime Hutton soils and the remaining ±85ha have either been planted to pastures or have gone to grazing.
The grazing on the farm is well balanced between vleiland and mountainous areas and is divided into 11 fenced off camps. The camps vary in size from ±30ha to ±70ha and all have stock watering dams. The fences are in good condition. High stocking rates have been achieved by means of rotational grazing and the stock handling facility can hold more than ±300 large stock at one time.
Water for the house and the milk shed is sourced from a consistent fountain not far from the homestead and Electricity is supplied by ESKOM.
