This 128.4798Ha farm is located +/- 70km north-west of Louis Trichardt in the Waterpoort area, Limpopo province, South Africa, bordering the west bank of the Sandriver. The farm is located among other successful cash crop farms on the banks of the Sandriver. Access to the property is obtained via the Waterpoort/Kortdraai gravel road. The farm is split in 2x substantial portions, by the Kortdraai gravel road, allowing a 67Ha game fenced area east of the gravel road used to keep limited game numbers. The remaining 61Ha west of the gravel road is used for intensive crop production. The farm is completely fenced.

The property is owned by a South African registered company. The company is VAT registered. Income is generated from crop production and specialises in the cultivation and production of tomatoes. Historical statistics indicate towards an average annual yield of 80-100 tons of tomatoes per hectare, depending on variety and seasonal change. Financial indicators reflect a lucrative average of 28% return on investment.

Considering the challenges and newly established norms created post the pandemic, it was resolved by the owners that, consolidation of business operations is inevitable. Despite the success, the challenges faced as a result of distance and isolation did not allow for the property to remain in the business portfolio and therefore the decision to put the property up for sale.

The property offers 50Ha established arable land, is well equipped and well organised. The property is used predominantly for irrigation farming. 40Ha established arable land is equipped with a modern, ultra-efficient irrigation system and offers additional capacity to expand and extend from current infrastructure. The strategic integrated water infrastructure, include water supply via a 200mm supply line from 7x boreholes as well as direct extraction from the riverbed. Water supply is stored in a large capacity water reservoir, 380 000 litres, and subsequently distributed via a comprehensive rotational irrigation system (160mm mainline) to 39 patches of land totalling 40 Ha. Water rights are secured via a Registered rights certificate at the National registrar, Department of Water and Sanitation. Official formal total tested water supply, from the 7x boreholes, exceed 200 000 litres per hour.

A mix of favourable elements, which include among others, well developed land with purpose fit infrastructure, an abundance of water supply, fertile deep red-brown sandy lime soils, ideal climate, topography, all adds to the success of this farming operation.
