Today, sustainability is at the heart of Vrymansfontein. We are passionate about preserving this beautiful piece of land and ensuring that it thrives for generations to come. Our commitment extends beyond almond farming and into conservation and sustainable farming practices, a dedication that is mirrored at Vondeling.
Our commitment to sustainable practices encompasses responsible water management, use of renewable energy solutions, and ensuring the well-being of our 40 strong team who live on the farm. Through innovative irrigation techniques, precision farming, and environmentally conscious pest management, we aim to not only produce high-quality, nourishing almonds but also to be collaborative stewards of the land.
At present, we are actively pursuing a 5-star Green Building rating from the Green Building Council of South Africa. Our efforts include a 200 kva solar installation across available roof space, a move that will halve our electricity consumption. We have also made the conscious decision to exclude borehole water as a source for our venue, reaffirming our dedication to responsible water usage.
