Thinking of moving farm?

Agriculture and fishing are key drivers of the Weskus economy. You can’t move your farm but if you’d like to farm here, the Western Cape Department of Agriculture can provide you with key insights and support.

Agriculture consists mostly of sheep, wheat and wine farming in terms of geographic product and employment. Then there’s fishing and mariculture with fish processing plants in Saldanha Bay, St Helena Bay and Veldrift. You’ll find mussel and oyster farming in the Langebaan lagoon.

Weskus is also known for wine farming, and then there’s rooibos which is unique in the world, and our olives are also sought-after. And fruit farms.

If you’re thinking of farming in our region, you’ll need a lot more information than an article can provide. The Western Cape Department of Agriculture can help with your decision-making with extensive information and services covering:

  • Agricultural Statistics
  • Agri-processing Support
  • Analytical Services
