One of the essentials of a Camphill initiative is taking care of the land
This is done by making use of BIODYNAMIC methods, which have been developed out of a course given by Rudolf Steiner in the 1920's.

We have been farming with a biodynamic approach for more than 30 years. The Permaculture approach has also been used in a more general application to living on the land. Primarily a dairy farm, also including free-range egg production, free-range pigs, field scale vegetables and firewood.

Camphill Village's enterprises have 3 main aims:
1. Helping people with disabilities to be creative and productive, and to fulfil their potential.
2. Creating employment and thereby raising the standard of living in the surrounding communities.
3. Raising funds to help make up for the shortfall from Government and other income.

We produce dairy products, many of which are available at Pick-&-Pay stores in the Western Cape, helath shops and farm stalls; breads, biscuits and rusks, cosmetics and a wealth of meats, veges, free-range eggs, honey and fresh fruit and vegetables. We also host a Sunday market on the 1st Sunday of every month from 11am to 4pm.
