  • Description

    Description

    We are a married couple. About 50 years old. We have a finca of 8 has of which 2 has are dedicated to intensive cultivation of tomatos. The tomatos are sun dried and packed either dry or in oil for local market. We also grow alpha alpha for our animals.

    Our season really gets going from the end of August with seeding the green houses, there after plenty of care and planting out around mid November. Harvesting and processing from mid January thru to March.


    Agro tourism comes along with the project. Our finca is turn key, from seed to green house to planting, harvesting and processing.
    We have 6 llamas, 1 horse, 1 donkey, Jenny, she talks alot, 4 dogs and 6 cats...... all including ourselves are non smokers.

    We are multi trade persons. We do our own civil, mechanical and electrical works including steel fabrication and development of our specialised implements. machinary and process equipment.

    The finca is located 15 kms from the town centre on paved roads. One of us travel to and from town almost daily. There is a bus service available at the front gate.

    Be great to have people who have general interest in farming, however the season does drag out a bit. Tomatos have a mind of their own, pressure on....off as the harvesting is selective for sun drying..weed control can be challenging! We participate in all aspects of the finca. Time off is important along with meeting friends and family.

    Skill Requirements.
    We wish to pass on skills you would never dream of having. From tractor driving and maintainence to welding. The list is endless.
