Investment Through Education

There has also been significant support for the local school.  The land the school was built on was donated by the van der Merwe family.   Support was also provided during the construction of the school and is continued with the company still assisting with the upkeep of the school grounds and carrying the costs with the 2011 expansion of the school. A local crèche’ is run for the benefit of farm workers with small children, the farm being responsible for financial assistance by paying the salary of one of the teachers. There are also ongoing sponsorships of projects with the Pioneer School for the Blind as well as the De La Bat School for the Deaf in Worcester.
