Mahela Group acquired the farms Smutsfield and Mountain Haven in November of 2014 to make up the Mahela Ohrigstad operations. The farm is situated in the Ohrigstad area of the Limpopo province an area very suitable for soft fruit production.

The main farming concern was chickens when the farms were bought but Mahela is in the process of developing the farm as a soft fruit exporter for the Mahela Group. All new orchards are being developed under shade netting to help assure better quality produce delivered to the market.

The farm will host a brand new packing house to service the export market.

Currently the farm still have cattle, Kalahari reds and Game on the property. Parts of the farm is also being used to grown lucern as feed for the animals.
