The farm produce, additionally including raisins and brandy were transported originally by ox wagon into the countries interior, until the introduction of co-operative marketing. High production costs and changes in farming legislation have been responsible for a decline in farming activity. The Groenfontein Farm is still, to this day owned by the Nel family, who farm ostriches, cattle and tobacco. Roll-tabocco, a form of chewable tobacco used by locals, was still produced up to 30 years ago. Flowing through the farmland is the Nels river. The water is subdivided by C. J. Langenhoven, writer of the original South African national anthem.
Water extracted fron the Nels river is of extremely high quality, and thus qualifies for bottling. To ensure this continued classification, several kilometres of furrows need regular maintenance. The farmland is situated in a valley of outstanding natural beauty, a big tourist attraction for people wishing to escape the confines of city life.
