For many years Nico Barnhoorn was the sole owner of KAROO DEPOT. He sold it recently to WELGESIND FARMS. The new owner is Jaco Kotze. The contact names at KAROO DEPOT are now Branden van Huyssteen or Janine van der Berg at 084 477 1117 and the email is nico@karoodepot.com

Welgesind Farms is situated in the Stormberg Mountains of the  Eastern Cape, 109km south of Aliwal North or 114km north of Queenstown.

This region 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 flavour. A Karoo delicatessen.

Our processed plant is moved to Bloemfontein. We use transport to get the cattle and lambs to the abattoir. The reason is that Bloemfontein is central to our distribution network and has better infrastructure to enable us to deliver better customer service.

We deliver monthly consignments of farm-fresh meat to drop-off points in Gauteng. In Gauteng, we also offer a door-to-door delivery service at R135 per delivery.  Scroll down for more information about the drop-off points and delivery service.

If you need more details, contact us by email, WhatsApp, or SMS. Our email will stay the same as before nico@karoodepot.com Cell no. for Janine or Branden is 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 the meat is fantastic. And the price for quality is well worth it. Can not be compared to local supermarkets.

Garry Clark 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 ðŸ˜€ Groete, Elize Bosch vanaf Germiston, Gauteng.

Barbara du Plessis I am so grateful for the opportunity of buying directly from your farm. The flavour 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.

Charmaine Pelser Has been getting lamb from Nico for a few years now and has always had brilliant service and the best meat ever.

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 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!

Mienki du Plessis Vleis van top gehalte👌👌

Nikki Wilkinson – Love the door-to-door drop-off. Always so well packaged. Neatly butchered with no excess fat on the meat. And very tasty

Shawntelle PaulI received my first order in July. I was most impressed by the packaging and quality of the meat…. I am never buying my lamb from local butchers again!!! I will always support Nico and his team.

Ina Mentz Baie dankie vir die puik diens wat julle lewer, so ver as Gauteng. Ek haal my hoed af vir jou as Karoo-boer, wat soveel ondernemingsgees aan die dag lê om jou besigheid te bedryf!
