Introducing Karoo Depot

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 is about 30 km outside Steynsburg.  Every month we bring a consignment of farm-fresh meat to 7 drop-of points in Pretoria and Johannesburg. Due to time constraints, we cannot do home deliveries.  Scroll down for more information about the drop-off points.

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

Benefits of FREE-RANGE meat

1. Free of antibiotics, added hormones, and GMOs
Animals raised organically are fed organic feed, which has more nutrients than factory farms.

2. Less chance your meat is contaminated by deadly diseases
Confined animals are exposed to bacteria and viruses, plus the practice of cannibalization create diseases like mad cow disease, which are passed on to people.

3. More humane, ethical treatment of animals
Factory farms treat animals like commodities, and they are kept in tightly confined pens and often never move more than a few feet their whole lives.

4. Animals free-range and graze
Free range animals eat more grubs and bugs than their industrially-raised counterparts; free range animals graze as they are inclined, which result in more nutritious food.

5. Reduce waste and pollution
Industrial farms produce so much manure that it is a human health risk. On small farms, manure is used to naturally fertilize soil.

6. It’s more nutritious
Research shows humanely raised animals contain higher amount of vitamins and minerals and less saturated fat. According to National Institutes of Health, grass-based diets of cows can significantly improve the fatty acid (FA) composition and antioxidant content of beef.

7. Protect your watershed and habitats
Organic agriculture improves soil fertility, instead of destroying it with chemicals and pesticides, which also pollute our water and the environment.

8. Promote biodiversity
Industrial farms breed only a few species of cattle, chickens, pigs, etc. In contrast, sustainable farms raise a wider variety of livestock, thereby promoting biodiversity and a natural resistance to diseases.

9. Use less resources
Local farms use 70 percent less energy than industrial farms. Buying animal products from local farms further reduces energy by reducing the amount of miles the food travels to your plate.

10. Support sustainability
When you buy your meat locally, you support local farms and contribute to the well-being of your community. On the other hand, if you buy non-organic meat from a supermarket chain, you most likely support a multinational food conglomerate.
