An irrigated vegetable and crop farm, measuring just under 432ha and situated in an established agricultural node close to Krugersdorp, is set to fall under the Auction Alliance hammer during its commercial Multiple Auction on May 19

Auction AllianceThe farm is well-positioned in between the Johannesburg and Pretoria fresh produce markets, in the heart of Johannesburg’s ‘Veggie Basket’. The property, located approximately 25kms from Krugersdorp and 20kms from Randfontein, is easily accessed via main and secondary routes including the N14 Highway and Ventersdorp Road, and offers good access to the facilities located in the nearby towns of Krugersdorp and Randfontein.

A large variety of vegetables are grown on the farm, of which , maize, wheat, sunflower and sorghum crops are sold to co-operatives and potatoes, are sent to Pretoria and Johannesburg’s produce markets, where accredited agents manage their sale. The farm’s underground water source, the Steenkoppies Water Compartment, is the largest water compartment in the country and only farms with certified permission are allowed to pump water from this source. Furthermore, the recent introduction of a new law allowing no new registrations for accessing water from this source, significantly contributes to the farm’s value.

Various improvements have been implemented on the farm including to the main house, manager’s house and staff accommodation. Thoroughly irrigated, the farm features an assortment of boreholes, natural dams and concrete reservoirs. Notable features of the farm include an office area, extensive staff accommodation and cold room equipped with 2 banks of compressors with 4 blowers.

Comments Pieter Nel of Auction Alliance, “With land prices increasingly on the rise, this expansive and extremely well-appointed farm, offers investors a solid income generating opportunity in the profitable and ever expanding vegetable market”

The auction takes place at 12pm at the Hilton Hotel, 138 Rivonia Road, Sandton
