On Sunday, 16th February 2020, Sandstone hosted a group of 20 from the Western Cape of South Africa. This was a research team and soil management advisors, led by Dr Johann Strauss, who are passionate about Conservation Agriculture. The team consisted of grain and animal farmers focussing on no-till, cover crops and crop rotation.
The group stopped over at Sandstone on their way to a farm visit in Reitz to view our Heritage Site and the collection. A team of 12 oxen were in-spanned to the delight of the group. This was the highlight of their visit and all were in awe! The collection was also a big hit as they could not believe the variety of vintage equipment on display.
“What an experience!”, one comment in the Visitors Book, which summoned up their visit!
