25 years on Paardekraal and 21 years on Onbedacht
2. In once paragraph - what is your farming philosophy?
Keep it Wild.
3.Tell us about one of your farming challenges and how you solved it.
I have a light touch and have minimized human impact as much as possible. Where possible, I let the wilderness continue as it needs.
I do not have cultivated lands and am trying to restore old lands to their natural state.
4. What is the most important SLM lesson that you have learned?
I’ve learned about the importance of water in the natural system, which may seem obvious, but it is genuinely the most important thing on a farm and we need to protect it.
