The Heiveld land purchase campaign “Good land for fair Rooibos” has made it to the finishing line!!
Dear supporters of the Heiveld land purchase campaign,
We have done it!
A year after the campaign was launched in Germany the money to buy the Blomfontein property is in the bank and the transfer to the Trust is about to go through. This remarkable achievement has been possible thanks to the efforts of thousands of inspired people. Thank you!! You have inspired us too!
In February 2016 the Heiveld Co-operative and its partners in Germany launched 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. A year later the Heiveld has realized its dream of buying the 2,497 hectare farm and private nature reserve Blomfontein. The Heiveld Cooperative’s Tea Court (production facility) and store have now been secured in perpetuity through the purchase of the farm.
