The Sheep Farming
Five Generations of Women built a Prosperous Farm
This Bloemfontein accommodation Estate is located on a working sheep farm, south of Bloemfontein, Free State, South Africa. Five generations of women have built and nourished a lucrative and prosperous sheep farm. Marie’s eldest daughter, Helen-Joan, shares her mom’s passion for farming, and together they are producing fine wool and exceptional lamb meat.
Passion for Farming and Cooking
Marie Lombard inherited the passion for farming, from her dad, Mr Wessel Bührmann, in 1991 and continued to farm with the Merino sheep. Having inherited the passion and dedication for farming, Marie has increased the numbers and the quality levels of the herd of sheep at De Oude Kraal Country Estate.
Marie has a passion for farming and cooking, and the combination of these passions has inspired Marie to deliver excellence and superiority in all the accomplishments at De Oude Kraal Country Estate. She excels in the kitchen, with amazing cooking skills, and she excels in the farm. It is really a Bloemfontein accommodation with a difference.
