The farm has 6000 established olive trees of various varietals in one of the many sheltered valleys. The main house, shed and olive oil cellar is located higher up in the valley on the edge of a pristine renosterbosveld biome which caps most of the hills. The farm is served with water from natural springs higher up the valley and in the evenings many animals come to drink including thousands of Guinea Fowl birds, but also buck, porcupines, caracal, etc. There are three pairs of fish eagles breeding in the area and you can hear them scream overhead every day. The true sound of Africa! The boutique olive farm, which is an accredited member of the SA Olive Association, is hugely successful, having won gold medals at the SA Championships for 2010 and 2011. Infrastructure: There are two tarred roads on the farm along two main valleys with two rivers and three dams. There is a municipal water pipe line that feeds the farm with household water.
