There will be a KTM route and a other bike route  >:D

The riding in the area is stunning and on the farm there will be a nice little uphill and down hill track  :thumleft:

I gave up on tree lucerne. The rabbits eat it faster than it grows. Its not as hardy as the smous claims.

Thanks for the heads up, we will be inclosing the plants with chicken wire to protect them

unfortunately not yet, we still live in JHB but go to the farm at least once a month. We plan to move out to the farm in 10 yrs time, hopefully by then, if plans come together, the farm will be generating a living income.

Will take pics of the Bonzai's this weekend.

Now THAT looks like an awesome spot!!

What area is it in?

Many happy days there for you guys!

Sorry, missed your question...

It's immediatly under Kaapsehoop, where the cliff face drops off into the valley below (home of the Blue Swallow). 
Between Nelspruit and Barberton, but high enough on the slopes that it's a good 5 - 6 degrees cooler than those places... :)
They call me Judy or Judes...
