This beautiful 428ha farm lies between touristy Fouriesburg and Ficksburg with the popular town of Clarens just about 45 minutes away. The farm has the most spectacular views of the Maluti range. There's natural spring water, 3 boreholes and it is a high rainfall area. Meaning there's good arable land as well as grazing land. Selling bottled spring water is also another profitable business that can be done on the farm. The farm can also be utilized as a fruit farm with trees that grow easily like cherries and nut trees. The farm previously had apple and peach orchards
Do you see an immense opportunity to expand in the cattle farming sector? Well, cattle farming may be the perfect career for you. It’s not an easy job, but it’s a rewarding one.
Not only does cattle farming allow you to provide your family with healthy, organic beef – that you know the source of – it also allows you to grow a business, even if you aren’t savvy in math, engineering, or technology. Farming is one of the most economically stable industries you can get into today.
While a love for the job goes a long way, you also need resources (or money) to get started. Like any industry, it’s very difficult to start from zero, but if you have a tiny bit of capital, land, or ingenuity, then in a short time you’ll be up and running at full capacity.
Agriculture dominates the Free State landscape, with cultivated land covering 32,000 km2, and natural veld and grazing a further 87,000 km2 of the province. Field crops account for almost two-thirds of the gross agricultural income of the province. Animal products contribute a further 30%, with the balance generated by horticulture.
The Free State's climate is characterized by warm to hot summers and cool to cold winters. This semi-desert area also brings fluctuations in temperature from day to night. Areas in the east experience frequent snowfalls, some of the high precipitation, whilst the west can be extremely hot in summer. Almost all precipitation falls during the summer as brief afternoon thunderstorms, with aridity increasing towards the west. Frost occurs throughout the region usually from May to early September in the west and up to early October in the east.
