Heiveld land purchase campaign “Good land for fair Rooibos” exceeded its target!
Dear supporters of the Heiveld land purchase campaign,
The end of 2015 we took the decision to support the Heiveld rooibos farmers’ cooperative with their dream to buy the 2,549-hectare Blomfontein farm.
The Heiveld Co-operative and its partners in Germany are launching an exciting campaign to buy land for use by aspiring rooibos small-scale farmers…
…while also conserving the amazing landscapes and plant life of the Bokkeveld Plateau in South Africa. The Heiveld wants to buy the 2,549 hectare farm and private nature reserve Blomfontein, so that some of its members and young people in the community can access land to farm rooibos, while also conserving the amazing natural beauty and biodiversity of the area.
