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

Here is the perfect opportunity to enter a unique niche market of an already established primary supplier of choice directly to SA's major retailers.

In addition to purchasing the farm as well as the intellectual property associated with the business, the new owner also inherits a foothold as a potential exporter to Europe.

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

Due to careful plant selection, considerable progress has been made to improve production yields dramatically.

Products are delivered and sold directly to South Africa’s major premium retailers.

All machinery and vehicles necessary to run this lucrative operation are included in the sale.

The business with all its goodwill, business contacts, packaging material, management systems, costing models, history, client list, suppliers etc included.

The farm and pack-store are fully certified in terms of GlobalGAP, food hygiene, ethical audit, GRASP, Kosher and Halaal.

The farm and pack shed managers are contracted to the farm so continuity of skills is assured.

The primary income generator is the berry business which is operated as a separate business entity that is not linked to the farm. The pack-shed processes berries from other producers as well throughout the country, hereby assuring supply all year round.

A brand new 30 kw automatic frost-fan with remote sensors and an on-line weather station was recently installed.

WINE BUSINESS

Until 2007, grapes were sold to neighboring wineries

From 2007, the first own labeled wines were produced in small quantities

Gradually other varieties were added

Now the farms sell about 100 000 bottles per year of 7 different wines

Wines are made through long-term arrangements with 2 different wineries under control of our winemaker. Because volumes now exceed what we can produce, additional grapes are purchased to fill out volumes as necessary.

The vineyard manager lives on the farm in one of the worker's cottages and runs the farming operations day to day.

Production is sold in export markets with the vast majority going through one internet based retailer in the UK, where the current owners are based. Other customers include small on-trade accounts in the UK and South African exporter to China.

There is a tremendous opportunity to take the range of wines into other markets increasing sales and improving margins.

CONCLUSION

The farms have a secure access via an automatic security gate. The farm is well positioned to develop its wine business having reached critical mass across its range of wines with key opportunities to penetrate new geographical markets.
