My name is Nico Barnhoorn. Me and my wife Ansa farm in the north-eastern part of the Karoo, not far from the Gariep dam.

Our farm, Kalkoenkrans is about 30 km outside Steynsburg, south of Burgersdorp and east of Molteno. 

Our farm from Google maps – aerial view.

Kalkoenkrans is well known for the outstanding quality lamb we produce and it is in an area where there is a good balance between grass and karoo vegetation. That gives the meat a distinguished and popular karoo flavor. A Karoo delicatessen.

Our abattoir (6/58) is on the farm and the authorities inspect our installations on a regular basisWe deliver monthly consignments of farm-fresh meat to 7 drop-off points in Pretoria and Johannesburg. We also offer a door-to-door delivery service at R98 per delivery.  Scroll down for more information about the drop-off points and delivery service.

If you need more details, the best to contact me is by email, WhatsApp, or SMS. Cell phone reception on the farm is not always good. If you leave a message I will come back to you asap.  My email nico@karoodepot.com Cell no.  084 477 1117

What our customers report

Natashia Thomas-Stephen – The people from KAROO DEPOT are very reputable, I’ve ordered before and will definitely continue. The quality of meat is fantastic. And the price for quality is well worth it. Can not be compared to local supermarkets or butchers.

Garry Clark Nov 1, 2021, 4:35 PM Hi Nico, I just want to let you know how tender the leg of lamb is that I got in my first order. I have never tasted such juicy meat. And one leg of lamb has given us 5 meals. My next order is for December Delivery. Will send it soon.

Naomi M Clarke Dis regtig die heerlikste sagste skaapvleis wat ek nog aanlyn gekoop het
Ek beveel dit hoog aan !!!!!!

Elize Bosch die vleis so pragtig en netjies in die kartondose wat julle gebruik, ingepas het. ‘n Groot dankie vir Burgert wat die vleis tuis afgelewer het. Nou moet die braaivleisvuur net aangesteek word 😀 Groete, Elize Bosch vanaf Germiston, Gauteng.

Barbara du Plessis I am so grateful for the opportunity of buying directly from your farm. The flavor and texture of both the lamb and beef are super. Also good to know that it’s a healthier choice.

Maguerite Zondagh Baie dankie vir die lieflike lamsvleis wat julle hier afgelewer het. Ons sal beslis weer van julle gebruik maak. Die lam het ‘n lieflike geur. Julle verpakking was fantasties. Alles in enkellae nogal MET labels op. Dankie dat julle uit julle pad gegaan het maar nou weet julle waar ons is.

Melinda Roodt Effortless order and delivery to my door. Very neatly packed meat.
So grateful that we finally have access to organic Karoo lamb and other meat that is free of hormones and antibiotics. We aim to live naturally and eat natural, fresh, and organic food as far as possible, no packaged food with additives and preservatives. Thank you for making this possible! Melroodt1@gmail.com

Michelle Green I have received my order thanks so much. Everything looks delicious. The service was great and the order process was effortless. I received 3x venison pies instead of 2 venison and 1 karoo lamb pie but that’s the absolute only small thing that went wrong. I can’t wait to taste it all!!!

Helen Walker Aug 17, 2021, 12:08 PM Thank you so much for my delivery on Sunday, we made a stew on Sunday, the meat was tender and tasted great

Cornie Freysen Kan dit regtig aanbeveel!! Uitstekende kwaliteit en prys!
