Surge of interest in Northern KZN farms

A significant percentage of South Africa’s small-scale farms are based in Northern KwaZulu-Natal, comprising a total of 35,833 square kilometres, where agriculture is extensively diverse as reflected in the patterns of topography and the soil fertile for the majority of agricultural activities.

Phil Hammill, Pam Golding Properties area principal in the Richards Bay area, says due to the good, reliable rainfall and fertile soils, the region’s agricultural sector has become very productive and is known for its specialist capability in several types of farming. “This has resulted in considerable interest from farm buyers, with game and sugar cane farm enquiries leading the field at present and with increasing interest in timber, dairy and eco-tourism.

“The most popular areas include Ginginghlovu, Empangeni, Mtubatuba, Hluhluwe, Mkuze and Pongola with a surge in interest in the areas adjacent to the World Heritage Site of St Lucia Wetlands Park, including game parks in the vicinity. There is also keen interest in farms among small farmers, with financial support from financial institutions such as the Land Bank.
