This well- developed small stock farm in the Karoo is perfectly suited for someone who would like to do small scale farming as a retirement option.
Situated 50 km from Steytlerville, 100km from Uitenhage, and 17km from Kleinpoort on the Springbokvlakte, it is supplied with permanent stock and household water from the Cockscomb water scheme.
The property is divided into 10 camps that have been newly fenced. The boundary fences are predator proof and some of the internal fences are electrified.Each camp has a watering point from the water scheme and the water supply is supplemented by several earth dams with sustainable catchment areas.
The veld is a mixture of broken Karoo scrub flats and undulating hillsides with good stands of Pruim-,Witgat and spekboom. Several Acacia riverine areas render it a good small stock option.
Despite the crippling drought,the veld cover is commendable.

A verdant fruit garden that includes grapes, peaches, quinces, and figs as well as a productive vegetable garden, forms part of the yard. The fruit trees are covered by a steel and net cage to protect them from the birds.
A single windmill pumps water from an earth dam near the homestead to supplement any other needs for the farm and garden
