This fully operational tunnel complex can generate you a cashflow from day one. The main line grown is tomatoes which are distrubuted locally and to the Port Elizabeth fresh fruit market. Peppers are also grown in open shaded fields and sold to the same market. The farm has two well finished homesteads and a Settler guest cottage set in a lovely garden setting with distant sea views. The property is ideally suited for cattle and game where one hundred and twenty large stock units can be run.
