The Sempurna story
“We, the Savage Family, bought the farm from Kevin and Cecilia Stanford in December 2020.”
The farm is located in the Klein Karoo, 1km from the historic town of McGregor, and 15km from Robertson. McGregor nestles in the foothills of the Riviersonderend Mountains. The town is well known for its historic buildings and lovely gardens. The farm itself is located on approximately 450 hectares of spectacular unspoiled Karoo fynbos. The farming operations are conducted on 35 hectares of cultivated fields. We farm 22 hectares of grapes, 5 hectares of apricots, 5 hectares of peaches, and a couple of hectares of citrus. The grapes are all supplied to the McGregor Winery, which is next door to the farm. Most of the produce from the farm is exported.
What attracted us to the farm was the spectacular setting, the space and solitude of the environment, the magnificent old Cape Dutch farmhouse, the potential to further develop the agricultural elements, and the opportunity to introduce tourism and guesting to the farm.
Having never farmed before, but being willing to learn, we searched the area for a suitable farm, and were thrilled to find Sempurna Estate. We aim to build our Sempurna brand through quality outcomes and high standards in our agricultural produce, our value added products, and our guest experiences.
