Introducing Karoo Depot

This website was updated on 11 Oct. 2020

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. 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 results in more nutritious food.

4. 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.

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

6. 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.

7. 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 natural resistance to diseases.

8. Support sustainability
When you buy your meat from the farmer, you support the South African farmers. On the other hand, if you buy non-organic meat from a supermarket chain, you most likely support a multinational food conglomerate.

Videos about the health of our food.

The American Academy of Pediatrics says the overuse of antibiotics to speed growth in animals is creating a significant public health threat. In a new report, the group warns the drug-resistant bacteria showing up in the food supply is endangering medicine’s ability to treat young patients. Jeff Olsen has more in this Mayo Clinic Minute. Nov 2015

The next video: Many popular food chains continue to use meat that contains a high amount of antibiotics. Dr. Janowitz informs us about why antibiotics in meat can be damaging to your immune system and what to look out for when eating meat. Nov 2018

The next video: Why Do We Use So Many Antibiotics On Healthy Animals To Grow Meat On American Factory Farms? By David Wallinga – David Wallinga, the Food Dr., is a physician who’s spent his career advocating for environments and food supplies that support Americans’ health, rather than eroding them. He’s here today to talk about what most experts agree is one of today’s greatest threats to American’s health – the worsening epidemic of drug-resistant superbugs, and how the senseless overuse of precious antibiotics in producing conventional meats are helping render those antibiotics ineffective for you, your grandkids and for generations to come. Dec 2019

The next video: A new study claims some popular oat-based breakfast foods marketed to children have dangerous levels of a chemical some health officials link to cancer.
