From a far distance one can see the giant bluegum trees rising out of the plains of the Sandveld. The farmhouse, built in 1913 by an Italian builder, is made of characteristically chiseled limestone.

The owners Doro and Gero Diekmann, with their three sons, Olof, Arno and Henrik, practice Holistic Management, meaning that decisions are taken towards a holistic goal and that decisions are ecologically, socially as well as financially sound.

13 committed staff members live and work with us on the farm. Together with their families our community consists of about 50 people coming from diverse cultural backgrounds (Otjiherero, San, Owambo and German ).

As we write this, we hear the kudu in the nearby bush. We are proud to be members of the Sandveld Conservancy and enjoy a diversity of wildlife. Since our start in 1990 our game populations have increased considerably. As one of our enterprises, we do trophy hunting. We are also engaged in the sustainable harvest of the well-known medicinal plant, the devil’s claw (Harpargophytum Procumbens)
