Wow Shanti, i am jealous. Such a magnificent area to stay in.
You say small farm but i see its highly specialised and you probably do much better than  guys here with big maize farms.
I am VERY interested in that off grid caravan camping thing -  would love to stay over one day - How do we get to you?

Hi SchalkL - our overheads are low - I wanted it that way , its just my wife, I  and Oscar - a Malawian working on the farm - we are working hard to make ends meet.
I am in an area called Fisanthoek  - you can find me on Google Maps under Fisanthoek films or Fisanthoek brewing co .
I have just cleared some blackwood and with the money I got relocating the caravan deeper in the forest ( before the caravan was on the side of the brewery which is getting noisy ) , my intention is to put a deck off the caravan , small kitchen , braai area and outside bath with donkey - will post some pics once done ...... our area is well known for cycle tracks in the forest ( Diepwalle ) so the intention is to set up some off grid caravans , provide a good fresh breakfast from the farm and a map of routes - the afternoon can be spent swimming in the dam , hanging out at the brewery etc - over summer we do movies on our field which is lots of fun - current caravan sleeps 4 on two double beds but I am looking for another two to provide options . Thank you for your kind comments

Sounds absolutely heavenly... except for the cycling bit.

Can one pop in for a beer? As re the glamping, only for cyclists? Any camping options?

"outside bath with donkey"

I am planning for years to build a Rocket Stove Bath, maybe later this year.  I did managed finally to build a big Pizza oven on the farm!

there is basic camping and beer :) I have had motorcyclists from around the world come stay - last was a couple from Holland and Turkey who had just done the west coast of Africa and were heading north via the east
 coast .
Attached is a pic of the donkey I want to install in the forest

Wonderlike foto wat jy daar geneem het Piet.
Hier is so brokkie nuus oor die sonneblom vir die wat belang stel:


SONNEBLOMME in die botselstadium is sonsoekers of heliotrope. Dit beteken dat hulle die sonderlinge eienskap het om hul koppe na die son te draai en sy gang oor die hemelkoepel te volg.
Met sonop tuur die meeste blindelings ooswaarts om die eerste strale van die opkomende son te groet. Namate die dag aanstap, volg hulle die son slaafs van oos na wesnet om weer die koppe
 wagtend na die ooste te draai wanneer dit nag is.
Die beweging word deur motoriese selle in die gewrig bewerkstellig, n buigsame segment van die stingel net onder die botsel.
Sodra die ontluiking verby is, verstyf die stingel en die bloeistadium word bereik. Nou is die sonneblom nie meer sonsoekend nie.
Interessant genoeg kom hierdie eienskap van heliotropisme nie by wilde sonneblomme voor nie, maar di se blomkoppe wys in allerhande rigtings.

Hier is 'n paar fotos van my aftree en kop skoonmaak plaas. Boer met Simbra en Brangus kruisings. Tans net naweek boer , maar oor so paar jaar hoop ek om voltyds daar  te bly.
Ons het so dankbare land. Ek het so paar fotos van so paar maand gelede toe dit nog lekker droog was en so paar van laas naweek na ek net so oor die 100mm reen gehad het. Al die vleie is vol water en die riviere loop. Hoe gaan die ou liedjie "Al die veld is vrolik"
Life is great LIVE IT!!

MFN van wanner af het jy n nuwe vrou? Jou vrou het mos n wit kop? :peepwall: ;) :lol8:
Stunning beeste :drif:
Naby Witvlei is n oom (Roboskop se skoonpa) hy boer met 700 Nguni koeie. Ek vra hom hoekom met Ngunis?
Hy s kom kyk my kalwers van Brangus bulle, en die koeie vreet baie minder as Euro tipe bees.
Hy kry al die chop vanaf Windhoek bier en voer sy kalwers tot slag ouderdom en slag als self op die plaas. Dus laai hy nie speenkalwers vir die SA voerkrale wat meeste Nam boere doen.

Daar is min so mooi soos nuwe veld, n mooi dier, selfs n geslagte karkas wat mooi vorm en vet het. Ek kan uitbrei oor bouvorm, maar dan wyk ek dalk van die plaasfred af :lol8:

MFN ek wil leer by die wat weet.
Hoekom het jy twee rasse wat helfte Brahman bloed inhet?
Hoekom nie Brahman koeie en Angus bulle by hul?
Of soek jy die melk eienskappe van die Simmenthaler?

Chris dis my dogter :laughing4: Ek het nog dieselfde blonde vrou :biggrin:
Ja ek het begin met Brahman bulle op Simbra koeie, maar die goed se temprament is maar seg as mens nie elke dag met hulle werk nie. Toe het ek oor geskakel na Angus bulle net om die temprament beter te kry en dit het gewerk. Nou is die bees baie makker en makliker om te hanteer. Die enigste probleem is dat die bees met meer Angus bloed sukkel maar in die droogte en verloor vinnig kondisie as hulle so ver moet loop om te wei, maar hulle dra baie meer gewig in daardie lang worshond lywe as die Brahman bees.
Net om te wys ek het nog dieselfde vrou, saam met die efgenaam :lol8:

 Ek het nog dieselfde blonde vrou

Ek is so bly, hou haar!! :thumleft:

My ervaring van Brahmane is Nam was meestal negatief veral in die areas waar daar baie haak en steek is soos in die noorde.
Een sondag oggend sukkel ons ons vrek om bees te laai op die Maroelaboompad oos van Grootfontein. Die manga is al flenters en die manne maak reg met draad en tang. Ek vra later die oom wie se bees dit is " oom boer jy met bees of wild"?!! Hy het glad nie gedink ek is snaaks.

Dan laai mens by n ou soos Dirk Mudge. Krale is heel en bees is rustig, want hulle werk baie met hulle.

Ek let op by die plaaslike veeveilings dat die Borans ook n helse humeur aan hulle het. Smaak my die Boran en Brahmane het baie gevegslus in daai boggels!! :lol8:
