Thank you for
taking the time to visit our website. While we realise that
most of you will not be able to inspect our stock on the
farm, a warm welcome is extended to all those who can visit.
Tiptree is an 860 hectare farm, all of which is
predominantly north facing. The farm is rather steep and
undulating, the average rainfall is 500mm.
There are 240 hectares of dryland pasture and 18 hectares of
permanent gravity fed irrigation. We have 13 hectares under
pivot with another 24 hectares under pivot being developed.
The rest of the farm is mountainous veldt consisting of
Themeda Trianda (Rooi Gras) to a sour fynbos type.

Tiptree Tuli Stud
was established in 2011. We acquired female progeny from
some of the top studs in the country – Namely: Great Karoo;
Burowill; Nonnie; Avondale; Eira and Bloemvlei. Our stud
sires were purchased from Great Karoo and Alpha Omega.
When we purchased
the farm we took over a flock of White Dorpers, which we ran
for 3 years. Under our conditions we felt a dual purpose
breed would suit us better and be financially more
