Farm Location

Montagu Farms

This 53 ha farm with spectacular natural beauty, is quietly nestled in the mountains at the end of a valley along the Langeberge.

This is a highly productive berry operation with a pack store, cold storage and freezer facilities.

The new owner has various options available

  • Keep the existing gooseberries and sell to the existing owner, thus keeping the farm as is
  • Remove all gooseberries and start fresh with any other fruit
  • Increase the tourism part of the farm and set up a wedding venue and restaurant
  • Run as a lifestyle farm
  • Fresh Gooseberry business and contracts can be negotiated

FARM SETUP

  • 8ha gooseberries
  • Pack store

These cottages have become extremely popular with folk seeking a peaceful farm-style break from city life.

Planning approvals are already in place to significantly increase the footprint and size of the self-catering cottages, to build an additional primary residence in a prime view spot on the farm and to convert existing buildings on the farm into a restaurant seating up to 100 people. In effect, planning approvals already in place will allow the construction of a total of over 950 m² of residential/tourism facilities.
