This top class dairy farm features a newly build 6000 sqm covered housing that can house 880 cows of which 800 registered Jersey cows are in milk, and a dairy parlour with
30 point swing over system equiped with state of the art Afimilk milking technology and 2 x 18000 litres pre-cooling milk tanks that protects milk form unwanted bactaria. A
generator ensures that the whole dairy parlour can keep running during loadshedding. There is also more than enough water with 1 250 000 m³ of registered irrigation, as well
as 3 x 25 000 m³ soil dams and a license for another 235 000 m³ dam. Most of the irrigated land’s water is gravity fed from the dams. The water is sufficient to have 250ha
irrigated cash crops or pasture throughout the year. 

Because of the fact that the farm is situated high up against the Langeberg Mountains, it has a high average rainfall (800mm per year) and lots of water from the mountains.
A water extraction system extracts water from the cow dung collected through pipes from the cow housing unit and pumps the water back for irrigation and the ‘dried’ dung is used
for bedding. The farm is also ideal for Almonds, or Citrus, Blueberries, Macadamias or Avo’s can be
planted. This farm is sold as a unit on its own, or could be bought together with 4 other farms.
