The present owner has driven an economic diversification programme that was already at hand to a new level.

The game component has been diversified to include trophy hunting. Tourism has been introduced. The pastures are excellent. The water is excellent and plentiful: 30-40 hectares can be put to irrigation. The rainfall is high enough for dry-land irrigation. Charcoal has been produced in the past and a large portion of Farm1 has been de-bushed, giving a much higher rangeland production potential. Whatever is not irrigated can be put under dry land cultivation.
Originally about 50 hectares have been put under dry land bloubuffel grass and about 14 hectares to floppy sprinkler maize irrigation.

Vegetables for the black market is a gold mine, especially cabbage and tomatoes.
This has a water extraction permit of 50,000m³ per annum. The farm has strong water reserves, one borehole 130m³/h and another 25m³/h. Therefore, an application for extraction permits of 186,000m³ per annum has been made and approval is pending.
