Our Farms

From the Sandveld to Klein Karoo

The six farms in the Laastedrif Group feature varying altitudes and climatic conditions, enabling us to produce quality fruit and vegetables all year round. From the Sandvelt (Elandsbay) and the slopes of the Matroosberg mountain (Ceres) often covered snow in winter, to the plains the Klein Karoo with its warm, dry climate, we work with nature to bring out the best in our produce.
