Krumhuk Farm lies 25km to the south of Windhoek, Namibia. Its terrain consists of some 8000 ha of upland savannah in the middle of the Khomas region. Here you can experience numerous wild animals in their natural habitat – oryx, kudu, springbok, Hartmann’s zebra, warthogs, wildcats, abundant bird-life – and those are just the most obvious ones.
There are two things that make Krumhuk Farm stand out as something special in Namibia. One is that it is run on bio-dynamic principles, and the other is that it is home to a multi-cultural community of some 80 people.
We are the only farm in Namibia run along bio-dynamic lines. This means that the principles we follow are ecologically and socially sound and sustainable. Another thing that makes us special is the farm’s diversity. Come for a farm tour and see what mixed farming means.
The farm offers a range of bio-dynamic products (not certified), such as milk, quark (cottage cheese), vegetables and meat, available direct from the farmhouse. Also available is freshly baked bread, which in due course will be made from grain we have grown ourselves.
The farm produce is on sale between 8h00 and 12h00 every Saturday at the Green Market, Klein-Windhoek (Dr. Kenneth Kaunda Street).
Agricultural production at Krumhuk, which is fully bio-dynamic, is divided into the following areas:
• Meat processing (our own beef and game)
• Milk processing
• Shaded greenhouses for growing vegetables and herbs
• Fodder cultivation
In the future we will be growing our own grain on 400ha in Northern Namibia, from which we will be able to make our very popular Demeter-quality bread.
Our cattle – beef, dairy and breeding cows – graze free-range all the year over the whole farm.
In order to farm successfully you need water. We get our water from bore-holes or by storing rainwater in reservoirs. Water shortage is a daily issue, and the main limiting factor in any plan for expansion. Our thinking for the future is in the direction of renewable energy and innovations such as “rainwater-harvesting”.
Krumhuk Farm is already as much as 70% self-sufficient.
