The farm is located on the Wild Coast, in the Eastern Cape Province, which is malaria-free. The project aims to farm holistically, applying techniques of biodynamic and astrological farming to rehabilitate Mpetukop Farm, its soil and its unique ecosystem. In keeping with these goals, there are both animals and plants on the land, and they are rotated, creating a mutually beneficial ecosystem which supports a diversity of species, with the aim of improving the soil for future generations.
