The farm has huge potential for expansion. The existing Dohne-merino herd can be increased and vegetables, fruit, and Lucerne will thrive in this area. Due to vegetation consisting of reeds and small shrubs, it is relatively easy to prepare new lands.
Potatoes are planted and harvested throughout the year, except for winter. The farm then generates an income by making its equipment and labor available for other producers.
This is an excellent investment which will be difficult for a commercial bank to equal.
