The farm is located on the banks of the Little Tugela River just outside the town of Winterton and enjoys easy access off the tar road. All basic amenities and farm supplies can be found in this well-established farming town. The primary use of the farm is pinned on the recently established pecan nut orchard. Currently there are 1500 trees that have been planted with the potential to expand with another 500 trees. The varieties include Choctaw, Navaho, Wester, with Wichita. The trees were planted 1 year ago and are a large and extra-large type.
Water rights exist for 5 hectares of irrigation during the winter months and the water is sourced from a canal that runs through the property. Lateral lines off the main line provide irrigation to all the trees. Improvements on the property include a 5-bedroom farmhouse, a 2-bedroom cottage, as well as a nursery.
A borehole provides water to the houses and power is supplied by Eskom. Located in the foothills of the Drakensberg, the town of Winterton services both a prominent tourism and agricultural industry. The town is considered an agricultural hub for the greater area which has predominately focused on the production of maize, soya, dairy, and beef. However, the area has seen the establishment of fast-growing nut industry driven by its suitable climate, high yields, and strong prices. This property is well suited for those looking to capitalize on this opportunity whilst enjoying the country lifestyle the area offers.
