We believe in a diversified farm system promoting both stability and fertility. As part of this system we have integrated animals onto the farm. We have a herd of indigenous Nguni cattle, Merino sheep and a few unruly pigs.
All our animals are pasture fed, and are completely free range. They have a shepherd who looks after them during the day and at night they are kept in an enclosure to help keep them safe from leopards, caracals and foxes.
The animal manure is used in our soil health program. They are allowed to graze the vineyards in winter, and in the summer we use their manure combined with garden and winery waste to generate compost.
