Sugarcane, fruit & nut farm

A farm situated in the Strydom block area in the Nkomazi Municipal District is for sale as a going concern. The farm is roughly rectangular in shape with the Lomati River, stabilized by Lake Matsamo (Driekoppies dam) forming the western and southern boundary. Adjoining farms form the northern and eastern boundaries. The climate is subtropical with hot summers (average day temperatures in excess of 32°C) and warm winters (average day temperatures in excess of 11°C). The humidity varies between 94% in January and 78% in August. No frost occurs but occasional hail storms can occur. The climate is ideal for a wide variety of subtropical crops. A detailed soil survey was done and a total of fifteen different soil forms were mapped. In general, the high lying ground is stonier with the lower lying areas more fertile with less stone and having a slightly higher clay content. The farm is situated on a relatively gentle south/west facing slope with the highest point being along the northern boundary and the lowest point being along the southern river boundary. Currently used irrigable land calculates to two hundred and twenty hectares with the balance of one hundred and twenty-six hectares being grazing, infrastructure and river frontage. Litchis, macadamias, mangoes and sugarcane provides a good year round cash flow, utilizes labour cost effectively and lowers risk of adverse weather conditions and low market prices. A full range of tractors, implements and equipment is included in the sale and buildings are functional and more than adequate to meet the need.
